This is 4th challenge week at The Paper Variety, and Suzanne chose a scraplift challenge.
The design team members created an "anything goes" layout. The challenge is to choose one of these projects as your inspiration. I selected Tessa's page as my inspiration.
I really like the different elements that she used. Tessa painted the photo mat, but I thought mulberry paper... It's been a long time since I've used mulberry paper. I wet the edges and pulled them. Once the paper was dry, I secured it to my background paper and chalked around the edges. I also used many of the other elements that Tessa did including the 3 embellishments below the photo and an outline around the outside of the photo mat. I used floss, eyelets and brads for the outline and I cut some embellishments from the paper I used, A Boy's Universe from The Paper Studio. On Wednesday, I checked out the Bo Bunny blog and was inspired by several of the layouts posted that day. Janice Medina's layout really struck me. She had the words mischief and mayhem on her layout. When I saw that, I thought of the photo I used. I just had to incorporate that into this layout.
Thanks for looking.
