More Layout Overload...

Okay, so obviously I've been doing a lot more scrapping than cleaning...or making Halloween costumes...or working on Primary things...

Well, a few posts ago I mentioned a challenge I participated in where I didn't use Andilynn's stuff...well, here is the remake using things only from Andilynn's Designs This one is a personal challenge on a private group I visit. It was a scraplift, but it is also by a Designer at Snap and Scrap. It's called Ferntree Fairies by Brianna Cox.
This is also from the same kit as above and was for the Tuesday Template Challenge at ScrapMatters.
This is a scraplift challenge from ScrapMatters.
This is the layout I scraplifted:

The Saturday Special at ScrapMAtters was extractions. Love how this one turned out.
This is for Becki Kress:

This is a template challenge at Snap and Scrap and uses the kit About a Girl by Brianna Cox.
This is an AWESOME template. It did all the color changing and everything for me. It is made using Jacob's Treehouse by Amy Riley at Snap and Scrap.

This is from last night's speed scrap at how my lo turned out, but it was a struggle to get there.
1. Choose ONLY one photo. Crop it an unusual way…make it an extreme close up, or narrow, or even cut part of your subject off…just make sure it’s cropped. AND make it pop…work on the color, the shadows, the depth, etc…make it shine.
2. Choose as many papers as you want, but they must be solids, no patterns. Make sure they REALLY complement your photo.
3. I want to prepare you for the next steps, so, rather than telling you what to do, I am going to tell you what NOT to do. No frame for your photo, no journaling, no word art, and no quotes. This is going to be all about your photo and the embellishments. Take this time to make your photo really stand out.
4. Create an element cluster (any size, any elements) and place it on your page UNDER your photo.
5. Choose an element or two (it can be the same element in different colors) and scatter it across your page…glitter, sequins, flowers, whatever. BUT, you must keep at least 1/3 of your page EMPTY.
6. Embellish as much as you want, over, under, whatever….but don’t forget rule #5 and keep at least 1/3 of your page empty. Embrace the white space.
7. Add a small tag and attach it to your photo. Add the date. If you want, you may add a SHORT title (no more than three words).

And I cheated on that last step a little bit with my title...

Hope you've enjoyed the eye candy.
