I have just submitted my final entries for SYTYCS!!! We had to create a single and a double, but that was all the criteria we were given, so as to allow each of us to properly showcase our own individual styles.
Given the fact we had only 5 days to produce the required layouts, we were given the option of submitting an old layout. I took the soft option and submitted this layout which I completed some time ago;
This layout has to be one of my all time faves! I just love it's energy! The fun, bright colours, the layering, the felt embellishments, and, well... all of it!!! LOL!
I have had an idea for a Grand Final type layout for some weeks. I thought it would be really cool to do a double-page spread that includes small photos of each of the layouts I had created for the comp. So...guess what I did for my second page?! Yep, you guessed it! Here it is;
I had a wacky idea for this particular design... I thought I might use the Scraptacular forum colours as inspiration for the colours used for the pps and page elements, AND(just for fun?!) I also decided to include one criteria from each of the first 8 rounds of the competition. These are the ones I used;
1. non-standard photo sizes
2. journalling strips
3. mix of different pps (not from same story)
5. ink edges of all pp and photos
6. at least 200 words of computer-generated journalling
7. at least 2 different stitch types
8. a colour blocked layout design
This page was a lot of fun to create, and I am so glad that I will always have it to remind me of the trials and tribulations of my SYTYCS journey. It has been a blast!!!
Now... here's where I start the begging! Voting lines are now open at Scraptacular. Please, please, please, if you are a member of the Scraptacular forum and you like my work, head to the forum, pm my name to SYTYCS_Votes, and cast help to make my SYTYCS dream come true!!!
