Ch{all}enge Masters Holiday Blog Hop-Day 2

Supplies:
Cardstock: Bazzill
Paper Scraps: My Mind's Eye
Alpha Stickers: American Crafts
Button and Star: ChatterBox
Gems: Prima
Pen: Zig
Adhesive: Mod Podge
Miscellaneous: Ink

I created this layout for a Technique Challenge at Ch{all}enge Masters. Tired of spending upwards of $2.00 per sheet for 12 x 12 designer papers? Make your own for a fraction of the price! All you need is a little creativity and you can make your own papers that are just as beautiful as the ones you buy in the store. For my layout I created patterned papers by printing the words from a favorite Dr. Seuss book onto a piece of cardstock, tore scraps of different colored papers and glued them onto a piece of cardstock with Mod Podge, and stamped circles using an empty paper towel roll and an ink pad onto a piece of cardstock. My fellow Design Master, Kim Score, created beautiful holiday themed papers using stamps, glitter and markers. Come join the Technique Group to learn this technique as well as be inspired by the talented members of the Ch{all}enge Master community. A new technique and challenge will be posted the first Sunday of every month. Complete a layout and upload it to the gallery by the end of the month to be entered into the random prize drawing.
