My Scraps Got Talent...1st Challenge!

Happy Saturday, friends!  I'm here with you today to remind you about our Got Talent III contest going on over on our boards...we just started yesterday with our first challenge.  The challenge is to use NO PATTERNED PAPER...pretty hard, huh?  You should see the awesome pages our members are creating!  They are tackling it and loving it, and surprising themselves!

Here's what I created as my sample page...lots of paint, tissue paper, stamping, washi tape, some old Fancy Pants transparencies, chipboard and a die-cut title.  I just went through my stash and picked out random things that were pink and yellow.  I started by painting and then literally just started stamping in various places.  I laid my photo down and started adding the tape.  It's all a matter of layering, and there's no right or wrong place to put something.  That's the beauty of the messy factor :)

A close up of the tissue paper.  I just tore some and used some glossy accents to stick it down.  I put some on my finger and just smoothed it over the top.

This piece with the circles cut out was actually the backing of a sheet of old circle stickers.  It added some texture and interest, and I just gessoed over it and added all my goodies on top of it.

I gessoed and painted this butterfly with my fingers and then traced around him with a black pen.

Random stamping and washi tape...

It looks complicated, but this kind of page is actually easy and fast to make.  There is no picking out papers and measuring.  Just throw it down and go!  If you'd like to join in on our summer-long contest, go HERE.  We'd love to have you join us!  We have challenges going up all summer every Friday and a mini-challenge every Tuesday.  GREAT prizes up for grabs!!

Thanks for stopping by, and have a great weekend!
