Mission Create - #0007

I was thrilled when Nicole Nowosad (she's also one of my So Sketchy! Sistas) asked me to be a Guest Designer for Mission Create for December!

Every second Sunday, the designers of Mission Create post a new scrapbooking challenge. But it's just ANY challenge, these gals work 5, yes... 5 challenges into ONE! So when these gals asked me to create with them, I had to add one challenge to their already list of four challenges and here's what this week's challenge is for you...

1. Use the colour RED.
2. Use grid or ledger paper.
3. Use a masking technique.
4. Use strip journaling.
5. And I added, do some stamping!

So this is the layout I came up with using ALL FIVE of the components of the challenge.....

The T-Shirt Says it All

I completely love how this layout turned. It took me a few hours after pushing a series of different photos around the masked image until I found the images I actually used.

Here are some close ups...

I used a variety of fun rub-ons by Cherry Arte and BasicGrey.

I cut out a bunch of different sized snowflakes on my Klic N'Kut machine to go on my page. I added some bling and some glittery pen dots to them as well!

I used my favourite tree masks from Tattered Angels and also some of their Glimmer Mist too to get my tree images on my back ground! I stamped a bunch of snowflake images from my favourite myStamp BOX stamp set, Let it Snow!, throughout my layout including one under my BasicGrey red bling snowflake.

Thanks Nicole and the Mission Create team for allowing me to join in this month! I had a BLAST creating this page!
