Week 6: Make Your Own...

Post by Soupie on Mon Mar 08, 2010 11:20 am

This week's challenge to get your mojo flowing is to make your own embellishment for a layout. It could be something as simple as a journalling spot, a handmade flower or something more elaborate. This is a great way to use up some left-overs, so dig into that scraps box and get creative!

There are HEAPS of wonderful sites and blogs out there with ideas for you to use, so if you know of any good ones, please share them with everyone! Don't forget to also post pics of your creations so we can see what you've been up to!

(And remember, we run embellishment swaps here every month, so you might like to join in on one of those!)

Definately the embellishment swaps are a great source of inspiration, as they force to to make your own! Smile

Also, I find it much easier doing embellishments in bulk - it's a great way to use up your scraps too!

Here's what I finished today for the March embellishment swap;



All using scraps! It's great using up scraps for something special! Smile
