Day 9 -- A Scrapbook Page
This is a scrapbook page I started a few days ago. I incorporated several challenges from myspace groups and scrapbook.com. When I first 'finished' it, it did not feel finished. But I did not know what to add. Then one of the DT members of one of the myspace groups posted a tutorial for dry embossing and issued a challenge to do some dry embossing on a layout. It took me a couple days to snap to it -- but eventually I realized that is what the layout needed -- a dry embossed border! LOL
I did all the dry embossing last night and took this picture this morning.
I used a stencil to make the stars in the corners and free hand doodled the confetti border. Then I sanded the raised areas and colored them with some light orange chalk. I had a blast doing this technique and in spite of all that orange, I am pleased with the way this layout turned out.
