Another in our series of design team challenges. The list of ingredients were as follows:
- Luxe Designs patterned papers
- Scenic Route Paper chipboard alphabets
- Fontwerks stickers
- Strano Designs 1.5" ribbons
One little difference in these new challenges is that the above ingredients were specified, but the choice of papers, of alphas, of ribbon colour etc was down to individual design team members. The different looks they came up with were, as ever, fascinating.
The simple flowing design of the Luxe 'Disco Ball' patterned paper seemed perfect for a slightly minimalist layout. Donna simply cut a few portions of paper from a hand-cut section and adhered a couple of different pp's below it. And...just to mix it up and create a smidgen more texture, a small piece of Strano was also added below the elongated swirl. The result is simple, but upon closer inspection, quite unexpected.
As ever Suz needed colour, which she managed to introduce by bringing in the orange with her choice of Strano ribbon and Fontwerks stickers, and she painted Heidi Swapp letters to match. Check out the texture in her Scenic Route letters though - she had a bit of fun with the new Tim Holtz Texture Hammer. It worked well with this furry photo she was showcasing.
Jaimie cut out the leaf & vine design from two sheets of Luxe First Class paper, then pinch folded before covering one 'set' of leaves with Dimensional Magic. Once dry she then layered the pinched leaves onto the remaining vine giving instant dimension. Jaimie inked the Scenic Route chipboard with Stazon before finally layering the Fontwerks Label stickers into a cluster and adding the rest of her title with the Carolee's alpha stickers, a few Luxe arrow rubons and the results speak for themselves.
Chris used the black, red and teal colours of the Stiletto Luxe papers to scrap this school Christmas occasion. She then cleverly used the Fontwerks label stickers as frames for her tiny photos. The chipboard and stitched ribbon add lots of dimension to the layout.
