AP DT #3
Well, this weeks design team challenge was to use collage sheets & rubber to create a layout, a tag and a card. Right up my alley! Except the layout part. I don't (GASP) scrap. Initially I thought this part would be the big challenge for me. I thought I'd work on this 1st, kind of 'get it over with'. I really did try to plan each component. Which images I would use for each piece. I kind of stuck with it. I wanted to do 3 very different themes. Hopefully to 'showcase' my areas of interest. The layout started ok, but just wasn't coming together until I redid the background. I began using a patterned paper. BLAH. No 'pop'. So I made my own with glossy & good ol' distress ink. I am much happier with the results. It's an 8x8.
The tag is 8" tall. Again with the distress ink for the background. The image is printed on silk.
1 more to go. The card. I have good plans for this one. Then to write up the instructions & post.
