Scrapbooking Challenge #1

Welcome to our very first scrapbooking challenge on Scrap Mixers... I am excited to be part of the team and to challenge you to use up your stash, to create a layout and to think outside the box.

Challenge: Use 6+ pattern papers on a layout

Description: We all have a stash of pattern papers, well let's use them. I challenge you to use AT LEAST 6 different pattern papers on a layout. Add as few or many photos as you would like.... really it's just about making a layout with lots of paper. Think squares, strips, circles.... wherever your imagination takes you.

Theme: What does Scrap Mixing mean to you?

This could mean that you scrap a photo of you, or your scraproom, or those everyday memories or even simply using your stash. We are really about being open to creativity and using what we have on hand.

To spark off your imagination, here are some layouts from the team:

For me scrapmixing is all about using what's on hand... I used 13 different pattern papers on this page, as well as flowers, stickers, buttons, bling and washi tape.

why I scrapbook: It's so important to create and preserve memories.
(You would have seen more about this layout in the simple tutorial posted last week.)

I made a LO with my favorite color: Pink! I made a budget-Lay-Out, with some greyboard, watercolours, some pieces of free wallpaper, pages of a book and music paper as designpaper.That is also scrapping for me, go outside in 'normal' shops and find some things you can also use for scrapping!


tip: don't be afraid to use your  own  writing 
the focus in this challenge is  what Scrapmixing mean to you,  so I found this  sentiment in a  magazine which said 
"Art is not what you see,but what you make others see"

  by  Edgar Degas



So now that you've been inspired by the team, go gather your supplies and create a layout. Leave us a comment here with a link to your layout before the end of the month.

Till next time


Thanks for your comment.
