Challenge #58: Mix & Match

Happy Fall Ya'll..Yea I am from deep in the south ;)
I don't know if you know or not but quite a few months ago we were approached by ScrapStreet Ezine about participating in an article. How cool is that? So we did and it is out in this months issue. We chose to use 10 different manufacturers on our layout. So that is the challenge this month. It was harder than one expects but it was very fun.
So pull out your manufacturers and give us what you got.



Here is my page ...I used 10 different papers and then cut out a mask and then started adding white paint, Gesso and chalk mist ...I had alot of fun using scraps on this page ..thanks for looking!!!!


Isn't Kristin's page SO inspiring? Love those strips!
I wish all the details showed up on this bright pastel layout. I was inspired by a Starbucks magazine ad to create this layout. I used a mix of ten products plus rubber stamps and NO patterned paper! So you can mix up a lot of products and skip paper entirely - how's that for variety?


I had so much fun with this layout - using so many different manufacturers turned out to be a breeze! I got to dig around my stash too for all sorts of bibs and bobs. I worked on a layered effect to get everything to fit. So there's a lot of texture and 3D elements. You can't quite see it, but the page curls at the top are used to hang a silver 3D wire star over the clouds. There are closeups on my blog of this.
The photos are of my (nearly 2 year old) daughter driving a Cozy Coupe and munching down party food at a birthday she was at.


So many things were put on tis LO. Things that I had forgotten all about. 10 different manufacturers. Things lost in a drawer. in a basket, Even things tucked away in envelopes. This is one of the most favorite challneges to do. Its basically what you want and where you want to put things.  Anything goes. Isn't that what its all about...So what are you waiting for. Just have fun with what you got!!!


I had a lot of fun doing this layout, searching for almost ten supplies from different manufactureres. In my layout I used even old Halloween papers that match with the colors of the photo, an old cheap ribbon and other accents that were closed in a box.
