January is a month where we make resolutions, start fresh and have a new outlook towards many things. Our scrapping is the same way! We start new albums, pick "one little word" for new focus and even try new techniques. My challenge this month is to use the word "new" to inspire your page. Try to move beyond new products (although that is fun!) and scrap about something "new" you're committed to (maybe a new diet?), "new" to you experience and while you're at it, use a "new to you" technique. Something you've NEVER tried before this page. Tell us how it goes in your blog post!!
Here's my take on my own Challenge...
Obviously, my title "new beginnings" is about the beginning of the year..I always love the ability to start fresh and have a new outlook. I also tried a couple of new (to me) techniques. First up, I watercolored the background of my printed paper..then after I created the page I felt it needed some balance and to tone down the pink a bit so I added some modeling paste using a stencil OVER the paint. I had never done that before, adding the paste over the paint. I like it!
I also added some washi tape. This was a first for me. Honestly. I don't really "get" washi tape, but I sort of like how it just gave the page a little something something...I might try it again!
and a close up of the bits and bobs I tucked UNDER the cameo cut...I hadn't done that much before I don't think! I like it!! And there you have it, my attempt at "new". Hope you'll play along and link us up in the comments! We also have a Facebook page that you can share on...we love to see you playing along! Here's the LINK.
