The December challenge over at Scrap Our Stash is to use your scraps. I created a layout for the challenge and wanted to share the pictures here. This was such a fun layout to create because I just sifted through my paper scrap drawers and pulled a variety of patterns.
To adhere the strips to the white piece, I just added adhesive on the back of the white piece, then randomly placed the papers on the adhesive, making sure the ends were staggered.
I didn't worry about the overlap to the right of the white strip. I ended up cutting off those ends when I was done lining the papers up.
Then I was able to take this strip of papers and I sewed them down to my layout with black thread to create some texture and to make sure all the patterns stayed in place. For some more 3d texture, I included some gold and silver star shaped sequins that were added in three places and attached with black brads.
I have a few more projects to share with more of these scraps, but I will wait and post those separately.
I can't wait to see how you use up your scraps! Once you have completed your project ,email a picture and a brief description to firstname.lastname@example.org and it will be posted on the Scrap Our Stash blog for everyone to see. Your entry must be received by midnight on December 31st. A winner will be chosen and announced on January 1st. The winner will be offered the opportunity to be a Guest Designer for the month of February.
