A few Challenge Layouts to share with You.

One of the layouts I would like to share with you today is a double page layout prepared for the January Sketch Challenge by Sally.  For those of you that struggle with the thought of working a double, you need to check out Sally's work!  This girl will adapt most of her layouts, sketches or challenges into doubles because this is how she likes to work.  I think this is a great idea for those wanting to work with multiple photos, especially when you have the perfect sequence to tell a story.

The green alphas have been painted with acrylic paint, then covered with Dimensional Magic to give them a glossy, rounded look.
Sally has used her i-Top tool from Imaginisce to make the fabric brads, and the holly leaves and berries have been coloured using watercolour pencils. The title was glittered Thickers that Sally decided to change the colour of, so painted them and added a couple of coats of Magic!
A little bit of innovation with some stripey paper, Dimentional Magic and Glitter help to shape the Candy Cane heart for an added touch.

Next, we have a layout for the Monthly Pack Challenge from Allana. Here we can see lots of tearing and layering of the different patterned papers in this range.  Allana has used her cardstock from the Booster to mount the orange onto, and used a piece of the orange to punch out a border strip between the photo of her speed demon and the patterned papers. 

Keep up the great work girls, we are loving what we are seeing!
