The challenge this month over at AFSC (Another Freaking Scrappy Challenge) is to:
Close your eyes and blindly grab 3 items from your stash and incorporate it into a layout. You may use other items, and you may re-colour your items, but incorporate all 3 items into the layout.
I followed the instructions and as my desk was pretty spot on organised at the time everything seemed to be too easy – yes too easy. So I got thinking and when I was at work next I spread out a kit from all of my classes from the last few months (well what I still had kits for anyway) – and then I closed my eyes and randomly chose three kits. I was pretty stumped with the results, as they really didn’t go together and the only similarity was they all had some kind of cream colour in them – what had I done!
The kits and the classes they were for…
I knew I had to treat all of those miss-matched pieces as I would a pile of scraps, so dragged out my Card Creations Butterfly Die and made a million (or what seemed like a million) Butterflies.
I put the Butterflies on in a grid patterned of alternating inches, then flicked over some co-ordinating mists and Golden Titanium White High Flow Acrylic (as one kit included a bit of white too).
A bit more die-cutting later and I had plenty of embellishments for my layout, without it being too overcrowded and mish-mashy, even though I had all of that stuff that didn’t really match in the first place.
So now that I have shared my creation with the November AFSC Challenge it is your turn….
Happy Creating and have a wonderful day
