Sarah's Another Purpose For Your Alphas Challenge

Post by redant on Tue Jul 03, 2012 1:38 pm

Sarah is at work for most of today so I am uploading her great challenge and gorgeous LOs for her:

So I presume most of us have alphabets of some type in our stash? And Im guessing that just like me you have multiple sets of them with letters missing and only strange unusable letters left over.

Well there are other ways you can use these leftover goodies to create interest in your pages.

So my challenge for you is to use your alphabets for something other than the obvious- title or journalling.

Here is my example layout, I have picked all the number 2's out of my alphas and painted them all the same colour. I then used them to make a border around my page.
I then took a square chipboard scrap and painted it and used small number 2 alphas in various colours to make a colourful embellishment.



Here is a closeup showing the embellishment I made:


Here is a layout I did last month where I have used odd alphas and painted over them all to create a interesting textured background





Some other inspiration ideas from around the web:

Using alphabet backing on page

Using alphabet leftover backing as mask:

Layouts are to be uploaded into the correct folder in the gallery by Midnight on July 15th.
The winner of this challenge will get a $20 voucher from Handmade by Suzanne

I loved this idea so much that I have completed it already, it only took me an hour to complete..It was just one of those Lo's that fell in to place.
Thanks so much for such a great idea to use up all my left over alphas.
i will upload this tomorrow when i have better light to take a photo.
thanks again

Funny, I was googling alphas last week because I was working on a page struggling to make any words from my alphas 'cause almost all vowels gone.

Jullene- I have linked up lots of inspiration ideas I came across on the web. Check them out if you get stuck for ideas.

Annette- So frustrating when you run out of alphas like that hey! Was getting very frustrated with my stash of them. Hence this challenge.

Maree- Loved your layout, I have been into the gallery and left you love.

Thanks Amanda. Hope to see one of your layouts in the gallery for this challenge!
