February's Challenge...

As we did in January, February will have a technique to add to your layout. This month's technique is decorative borders! This is a great added extra to any page, and there are so many ways to do this. Until we post the Inspirational Team layouts on the 15th, we will demonstrate some different techniques you can use to create a decorative border to add to your challenge layout.

Well...here it is...February's Scrapping Word Pictures challenge!

Material List
2 landscape photos 10x15cm
1 x cardstock or patterned paper 30x30 for base
Patterned paper/cardstock pieces:
Paper A – 28x28cm
Paper B – 7x12cm
Paper C – 10x16cm
Paper D – 30x11cm
Decorative border 30cm x 3cm – our technique of the month!!

Paper Placement
Place paper A in the centre of the base.
Paper B is then attached on the top left hand corner of Paper A.
Paper C should be attached to the bottom right of Paper A.
Place Paper D across the layout along slightly overlapping the bottom of Paper B. This is your photo mat.
Place your photos side by side on Paper D.
Your decorative border should be placed along the bottom of Paper D.
Your title should be placed in the top right hand corner of Paper A.
Add your journaling to the bottom left hand corner of Paper B.

Now it’s time to make it your own!!

Remember to e-mail your layouts in no later than the 28th of February to word.pictures@hotmail.com and please tell your friends!!!

If, at any time, you have any questions or suggestions, please send us an email. We'd love to hear from you.
