February Blog Challenge Patterned Paper

Wow! January sure did fly by! It’s time to  announce the Etc by Danyale January Blog Challenge winner!!Last month we did a paper blend, which was a lot of fun. We loved admiring all the beautiful pages submitted! Random.org has spoken, and the winner is:

Mary Powell !! Congratulations!!

Now over to Jenn for February’s Blog Challenge!
For this challenge I decided to keep the paper theme going in a different way. I have come to adore patterned papers. I feel that I usually use them over solids. They just speak to me. Danyale does non-plain papers like no other. Her patterns are so beautifully shabby and exquisite. For this month, you need to use ONLY pattern papers. No solids at all.

I scrapped a rainy day at Disney (definitely better than a sunny day anywhere else), using Gentle Rain. I only used Danyale’s shabby delicious patterned papers, but I don’t like to journal over papers that aren’t solids. There are a few tricks to get around that. You could use one of Danyale’s paints to journal over or you could use a mask and work with the opacity until you get it just right to cover your patterns and journal over. I made a rectangle shape, then used the eraser with a soft rounded brush at a 20% opacity to just erase the hard edges of the shape and blend the rectangle into the background. I then used a fill color that matched my layout. You don’t have to use journaling on your page if you don’t want to, but feel free to use masks or paints for journaling if you would like some, just no solids!

Folder (12)

And here is what I came up with.

So on to the rules…

Scrap a page using only patterned papers. Use any combination of Etc by Danyale kits found in her stores.

Remember, if you scrap with a new release the first week within its release, you will get an extra entry point. For example, Danyale has a new kit that releases on the 1st, you purchase that kit and scrap a layout with it posting it by the 8th and now you get two entries instead of one.

Upload your layout and post it here for us to gush over by midnight EST on Monday February 29, 2016. We would also love to see your layout at the Etc by Danyale gallery over at the Lilypad. Go ahead, fill it up!

One lucky winner will be chosen at random to receive a $10 coupon to Danyale’s store.

We can’t wait to see what you create this month!

Jenn
