Hello and happy weekend, everyone. Today I'm super excited to introduce a new blog feature... challenges! Each month we will issue a new challenge to (hopefully) spark some creativity and get you scrapping. Fun, right?! Who's ready to get started?
This month's challenge is to embellish your embellishments. For my layout, I dress up my Elle's Studio tags :)
I started with a 4x6 journaling tag and cut around some of the hears to add dimension. Then, I embellish them by adding patterned paper and machine stitching (straight or zigzag depending on the size).
You can interpret this challenge in many different ways... cut it, sew it, pop-dot it, add some glitter, sequins, twine or floss...you get the idea. Here's another example from my September gallery where I added some floss over the zig zags on the tag:
I hope you are inspired to get creative and play along with us. Post your newly created layout to this blog post by Friday, March 17th for your chance to win a $10 gift card to the Elle's Studio Store! I can't wait to see what you all come up with.
