Hello everyone! Welcome back to the month of March and a brand NEW kit!
This week's theme is all about taking a leap...taking on a new page design, or new technique...something out of my personal norm.
So as much as I do love trying new things....it definitely was a bit intimidating! Change...always a struggle, right?!?
So, what I did come up with for the challenge is a fun new way (for me) to use pocket page cards. I decided to essentially create my own background pattern paper by combining the various cards and turns out...I love it!
Usually as much as I love bold colors, patterns and designs...I often find I do not implement them too often in my own scrapbooking. However, after this challenge I think that might change! I loved playing with the patterns and pops of color. It really was fun and I think also a great way to use up those extra cards we all have lying in our stashes.
Once my background page was complete, I even added some subtle machine stitching. Then I had fun adding in my photo along with some of the many awesome embellishments that made up the kit this month. I am obsessed with the type word strip stickers! You will definitely be seeing them on everything this month. I really had fun mixing and matching the embellishments and playing with colour.
I truly love challenges such as these that push me out of comfort zones. I have definitely learned to "embrace colour more"...and patterns! Really work at mixing and matching...it's fun! I am loving all of the possible combinations and this challenge really has helped me creatively. It was really fun bringing everything together.
See you next week!
