.... To Finish!

Hi and welcome back to the "Start To Finish Challenge", a new challenge series hosted here on S J Papercrafts.

A few days ago, I showed you the very start of a layout. A few sheets of patterned paper layered to make the "bare bones" of a layout and explained that the idea behind this new challenge series is to help overcome that "scrappers block" that so many scrappers tell me they get when they sit down to create.  If you missed that post you can catch up on it here!

Why not play along with this challenge and instead of pushing papers around for 20 minutes or so .... Cut into them and stick them down in the same position as the "start" layout. Simply copy it .... and then add your own photos and embellishments to finish off your layout in any way you choose.

And here's my finished layout:


With my papers already layered I had a nice base for adding my photos. I trimmed 2 journal cards down and tucked the "these boots are made for walking" card underneath the smaller photo and placed the other card (pink with the # phrases on it) above the larger photo to balance it out. Some washi tape, tiny hearts (punched from the rest of the pink journal card), chipboard heartsenamel dots, a few stickers and a title and I was almost done. I added some journalling to tell the story of a very muddy walk in the forest. To finish off my layout I flicked on a few drops of Heidi Swapp Pink Colour Shine.



If you want to play along, start off your layout by copying the "start"of this layout by positioning your papers in the same, or a similar placement (if your papers work better slightly higher/lower/further over to one side then go ahead and change it up slightly )  and then you are free to carry on to finish your layout in anyway you choose.

Use the linky tool that can be found on the first "Start" post to link us up so we can come and see. Remember to take a photo of your start layout before you add your photos and embellishments as well as a photo of your finished page.

Have fun!
