Hi everyone, Mou here with today's challenge!
When I make layouts, cards, etc. I rarely stay within one collection. I like to use bits and pieces of papers, embellishments, etc. from several collections. In that process, I have found that the October Afternoon collections, as distinct and beautiful as they are, also work really well together. That's where my idea for today's challenge came from: Make a project with 3 patterned papers, 3 buttons, and 3 brads.
Here's my take...
On this card, I used
3 patterned papers
1. Berry Basket 12x12 paper, Farm Girl Collection
2. Elixir of Eucalyptus 12x12 paper, Witch Hazel Collection
3. Paper Staws 12x12 paper, Cakewalk Collection
3 Designer brads from Cakewalk Collection and
3 Buttons from the Midway Collection
In addition, I used a little piece of cheesecloth, a Cakewalk chipboard sticker and some Mini Market Mint & Creme alpha stickers.
Today, I have Becky playing with me and take a look at what she created...
Becky says: "One of the things I enjoy about challenges, is the fact that you can make it your own. When Mou gave me her challenge, I decided to be pretty literal in my approach. I used only 3 pattern papers, 3 buttons and 3 brads, and only added non-consumables, a bit of vintage ledger paper, misting and sewing in addition to my background chipboard. Made the challenge a little more challenging, but that was good for the creative process."
You rocked it Becky! Thanks :)
You can play along too. Upload your creations on the October Afternoon Flickr gallery for all to see and be inspired!
Happy Monday :)
