I am loving the new blog over at Merly Impressions. THey are a great super shop and the customer service is amazing and super super fast! Whenever I buy stuff from there it arrives really quickly! The best purchase I made was the 12x12 Kaisercraft paper holders! I have 4 of them and I think when I move I will need to buy some more!
I saw this challenge over at their blog and at first I was really not sure I was going to like this sketch! I never put pictures at the top and also I never really leave a lot of space at the bottom. However, one of the reasons I like challenges is that they do push your creativity and make you think out of the box
I then decided to give this sketch a go and I am so pleased I did as I love the dreamy effect created by putting a picture at the top. I am definitely going to try this sketch again. I chose this picture of my daughter and I which was taken last week. I hardly ever scrap current pictures because by the time I print them and file them it's like 2-3 months down the line. However, I am so loving instagram and with that application printing is a breeze.
The challenge can be found here: http://www.merlyimpressions.co.uk/blog/category/challenge/
Since I don't tend to leave a lot of white space as to me it feels trapped somehow I punched a few bits and added bits here and there. I added some stickers, Hero Arts pearls, some Websters embellishments and also some Studio Calico stickers and wood shapes.
