These were the elements of the challenge:
- A non-12x12 layout
- Include something BIG
- Use bright, happy colours or papers
Look Both Ways Layout
Materials used: Basic Grey Offbeat papers and coordinating scrap cardstock. All the arrows, title, swirls and paw were cut on the Craft Robo. Dymo labeller and red tape. Dimensional Magic to give the title words and the paw an epoxy look.
Materials used: My Mind's Eye Bloom & Grow papers. The letters, jumping children silhouettes and swirls were all cut on the Craft Robo from various files. I used the Hot Off The Press Fold-a-Swirl template to make the flowers. The gem brads are an unknown brand. EK Success & Fiskars punches for the scallop and circle tag. Lots of Kindyglitz glitter glue. Sakura Stardust pen to outline the letters. Cheapy glitter pen to write the words.
I feel so tired now after doing these layouts as I feel as though they have sapped all my creative energy!!! Especially the JUMP layout. Neither of them really turned out the way I had envisaged them in my mind, but I'm still happy with them. I'll definitely try these freeform layouts again - they're really fun! Why don't you give it a try too and see what you can come up with?
