This is an exciting week! Wednesday, July 1st is the debut of the next issue of Scrap n' Art! And it is no ordinary issue! This upcoming issue will be the first issue with the snazzy new format! It is really awesome! I think Scrap n' Art readers, fans and newcomers alike will really, really LOVE this new format. You'll need to subscribe to view it (which is also a new change), but at only $9.99 a year (for six issues), it is a real steal! And you definitely will not be disappointed! It is packed with inspiration, projects, layouts, tips, articles and chances to win prizes, plus so much more (a subscription also includes exclusive web content for subscribers!)! So, please check it out! :D
I've been super-busy getting projects done for the NEXT issue of Scrap n' Art (September/October), which is when I'll make my Design Team Debut. But I do have three layouts coming up in the July/August issue! :D
I am sharing some layouts I did for the Scrap n' Art Blog below.
The first one is of Ginger, and this layout was for the "Negative Space Becomes Positive" Challenge. I used a butterfly die-cut paper as both a stencil (to make the white butterflies with acrylic paint), and as an element on the page, just as I would have used patterned paper. This was fun to do! (A fun fact: I included that strip of numbers from some October Afternoon Cherry Hill paper because it has both a 67 and a 77, which are our birth years. Just a little sisterly connection thing I wanted to put on there.)
This next one was for the Scrap n' Art Blog's "Monochromatic Masterpieces" Challenge. It was challenging, yet fun, to do a layout with shades of just ONE color! I used pictures of my parents' beautiful backyard garden.
Have a great week!
