Decided that I would share my entries for the Scrapbooking Memories Masters competition from 2014. This was the 2nd year that I have entered, and I ended up leaving it to the last minute to get it done and pulled a few late nights! Anyway, I was really super happy with my entries.
And I was excited to get my mag yesterday, and see that I had received an Honourable Mention for my "Travelling for Work" page. Yay! Just happy to be amongst such awesome talent.
Task 1 - Requirement: 5X7 photo with eye contact.
I do love this page... it still uses all the patterned papers that I love, but also incorporates some of the new mixed media backgrounds which I have used more in 2014.
Task 2 - Use a non-traditional scrapbook item on the page
I used a doily placemat as a mask, and milk bottle lids as stampers for the circles. I also used the trusty white mesh plasterers tape.
Task 3 - Journalling as a feature
I had a fair bit of journaling, so I ended up hiding some under a flap that opened easily on the page. I printed it all on vellum, which, let me tell you, took FOREVER to stick down!!!! This was the page I got an Honourable Mention for, and is currently published in the January magazine.
Task 4 - Art Journal
As I left things to the last minute, I didn't end up being able to find an Art Journal at my local shops - my solution - I made my own journal - with cardboard cover and patterned paper pages. Although different, I was really happy with how it turned out. Since I got the book back in November, I have tried to "journal" a few pages. Definitely need to work on this! LOL!
Thanks for looking today.
