Chall 3: Sue's Chippie & Alphas Challenge!

Post by Soupie on Tue Mar 15, 2011 4:31 pm

For my challenge, it's time to bust some of those old pieces of chipboard and left-over alphas you've got hiding in the depths of your stash! Mix up your left-over alphas, find ways to alter them, or use them in different ways. Same with your chipboard - ink it, paint it, cover with paper or ribbon, distress it...just USE it!!! That's all my challenge to you is - I just want to see lots of old / forgotten / neglected chippies & alphas being used on your layout!

Here is my sample LO...



For my sample LO, I used an old chipboard alphas negative with glimmermists to create my background, then used a variety of methods to alter my chipboard pieces (ink, paint, pp & distressing, Washi tape). My title alphas were a pack of old Kaiser ones that had lots missing, so I cut them up and stuck some of them together to get the letters I needed. I kept any extra embellishments to a bare minimum, just so I could challenge myself to complete the LO using mainly chipboard & alphas.

Can't wait to see how you all do!!! Very Happy

Entries for this challenge will need to be uploaded to the correct folder in the gallery by midnight, Sunday 27th March.

The winner of this challenge will receive a $20 voucher to spend at Pretty Paper Petals!!!
Vicki has lots of gorgeous goodies on offer in her store, so why not pop over and see what's available...you won't be sorry!

I don't know if this is okay, but I incorporated both your challenge and Jullene's challenge into one LO... Does this matter?

Just uploaded my LO. Unfortunately I had to photograph it sans photo as my brother is a bit funny about his photo being on the internet.

Loved the challenge. The photo is of my two brothers + my boyfriend from my mum's 50th, on the 5th March. Added a couple of crochet dollies as well as a handmade distressed flower.
