Design Challenges - Two

For our second challenge in Design Challenges, we were to make a photo our canvas. Normally, I create scrapbook pages that are either 8.5x11 or 12x12, but I don't have any photo enlargements bigger than 8x10, and I wanted the photo to be the whole page. So, I went with an 8x8 page, using a photo I've had for awhile of my niece during a visit a few years ago, embellishing with some stickers and patterned paper from the brand new Echo Park collection called Hello, Summer!

(Supplies: Letter stickers by Pink Paislee. Gems by K&Company. Patterned paper and stickers by Echo Park.)

I totally dig this effect, the photo serving as the entire page, and I'm thinking it would be stunning to use a 12x12 enlargement for a special page, like a wedding layout. I'll be giving that some thought...


  1. This is such a cool idea Mel! You did a fabulous job with the challenge...

  2. Stunning work Mel....this is a gorgeous page and something I need to think about doing.....
