100616 CKC October Challenge #1
Challenge #1 for October 2016 - Snip! Snip!
"Pumpkin carving is a popular activity at this time of the year, with patterns ranging from the traditional triangle-faced Jack O'lanterns to much more intricate designs. Our first challenge this month is the scrapbooking equivalent of pumpkin carving - fussy-cutting! Use your scissors to trim one or more designs or images from patterned paper and then use the cut image(s) on a project."
It is somewhat ironic that I drew this challenge (thanks, Susan!) as I frequently fussy-cut beautiful patterned papers for my layouts. This month my kit had some great florals so I decided to do a wreath surrounding my photo. I sometimes get a little bogged down with covering up pretty papers but I managed to make this work to my liking.
It's like you're peeking through a window at the scene.
My journaling talks about how we've bought bikes & are exploring the local rail trails - biking/walking/skating paths utilizing old railway lines. They were made quite level & raised so are perfectly suited for these kinds of recreation/exercise. I've done a recent blog post about it HERE
Give your kit a look & see what elements you can carve out of those gorgeous papers!
Make sure you post to the Linky.
