Speed Scrap!

Don't ya'll know that I'm addicted to these. They are so much fun!!

Here are the instructions for the latest installment.

1. Choose as many photos as you would like, but your main photo has to be positioned so that it is hanging over the edge of your LO (as in I shouldn’t be able to see all 4 sides).

2. Blend a background using 2 or more papers. Try using blending modes on your program such as overlay or soft light…have fun playing! Sometimes I use a soft edged eraser at 35% opacity to erase one of the papers in spots.

3. Now layer at least 3 papers behind your main photo. Add other papers and mats as you wish.4. Add embellishments. The only rule here is that you may NOT use any flowers!

5. Include a few fasteners: tape, staples, stitches, etc.

6. Include journaling in a column. This means that your text box should be longer than it is wide!7. Add a date tag and a title.

Here is my page:

Also, I wanted to give away a freebie today. So if you've read about the speed scrap, lucky you, here's a new template from me to you.


It is based on this layout I created a few weeks ago.
