I haven't played along with a scrappy challenge for a looong time, but I have two very good reasons for that (and their names are Gregory and Harriet). However, they are now two months old and quite enjoy being in a baby carrier so I've managed to get a bit of scrapbooking done.
I thought I'd play along with this month's Kraft + challenge, which is to use roses three ways:
For this challenge I made a layout documenting the last couple of weeks of my pregnancy, which was not all roses. I wanted to document the struggle but also how grateful I was to make it to 36 weeks.
My layout uses roses in six different ways. In addition to the word "roses", I've also used a rose patterned paper, rose die cuts, resin roses and some rose washi tape.
I also busted out a Heidi Swapp screen printing kit I had never used before and added some screen printed roses to my background.
I love how scrappy challenges encourage me to try new techniques and supplies. Fingers crossed I can squeeze in one or two more by the end of the month.
