Mish's Blind Scrapping Challenge

Well it's Friday 13th...

Watch out for black cats, ladders, and no stepping on cracks in the pavement!

So to keep you all away from all those old Superstitions, Mish has given you something to keep you safe whilst indoors.

Supplies Needed:

1 - 12 x 12 cardstock

1 - patterned paper 7 x 11

3 - co-0rdinated strips of patterned paper measuring 12 x 2, 12 x 1, 12 x 3/4of an inch
tear or distress the edges of these paper strips.

1 x 5 x 7 Landscape orientated photo

4 or 5 strips of journalling - a quote is a useful thing to use.

Strip of cardstock or plain patterned paper 5 x 2

Chipboard alpha for the title, and alpha stickers for the sub title

Embellishments to suit your photo

Inks, paints, tools

Step 1

Ink and distress the edges of your cardstock.

Step 2

Distress, tear and ink the 7 x 11 piece of patterned paper. Adhere to the left hand side of your layout.

Step 3

Using paint on your finger run a thin border around the edge of your photo. You could also distress and ink if you do not have paints. Set aside to dry

Step 4

Take the 5 x 2 inch cardstock or patterned paper, and either draw freehand on the back of the strip a scalloped edge. Cut this out. You can use any other border punch you wish if you like.

Distress and ink the scalloped edge on the RIGHT side. Attach to the left hand side of your photo, about 2cm from the top.

Step 5

Adhere the photo to the top left hand corner of your layout - about 2 inches from both top and left side.

Step 6

Distress and ink the strips of co-ordinated patterned paper. Place these running horizontal across your page, under the photograph. You may want to stagger these so they don't all start and finish at the same place. Cut to your own desired length.

Step 7

Distress and ink your journalling strips and place down the right hand side of your photograph.

Step 8

Add your chipboard title on the top Left hand corner of your photograph, with your subtitle running across the bottom right hand of your photo.

Step 9

Embellish your layout to suit your photo, remembering to balance your layout by creating a visual triangle.

Have fun and don't forget to share in the gallery.

*edited to add* Mish has done hers and loaded in the gallery. She has taken poetic licence and moved everything to the right to suit her patterned paper.
