Scrappin' Moms Idol 2 - Week #4

The competition is getting tougher each week. Another round has passed and these are the ladies who are still in the running to be the next Scrappin' Moms Idol.

Week 4 Contestants

And now on to the Week 4 challenge...

"Layers of Me"

Design Concept: Dimension and Layers

In designing your pages, flat layouts have evolved to include depth and texture, thereby creating layouts with dimension. It is as if your elements are popping out of the page. There are a lot of possible techniques to achieve this - layered embellishments, sewing, sanding, crimping, the use of bulky or dimensional materials among others.

          • This week's theme is all about you, the historian, the artist of the family
          • Create a 12x12 layout focusing on you, your life and where you are now
          • Use ONLY Cardstock and Patterned Papers
          • You must create your own embellishments.There are lots of things you can do with paper to create your own embellishments like cutting images out of patterned papers, diecuts, paper piecing.
          • Stamping is NOT allowed.
          • To add dimension you may ONLY use the following: Diamond Glaze, Clear Embossing, Clear Crackle Medium, Paints (of any color), Glitter (of any color), Stickles (of any color)
          • Colored inks may be used ONLY for distressing.
          • Journaling must be visible in your layout. Your journaling should focus on you, your life and where you are now.
          • There should be dimension and layers in your layout.
          • Include a write-up of how you applied Dimension and Layers in your design

          Criteria for Judging: Originality & Creativity - 20%; Overall Design & Craftsmanship - 30%; Choice of Photo - 20%; Journaling - 20%; Challenge Requirements - 10%

          Congrats to everyone who got through to the next round! :-)

          Question lang po...As stated in the challenge criteria, the LO and the journaling should be about us (the scrapper), right? What about the photo/s? Should it be of the scrapper or could it be of anything or anyone that is significant to the scrapper?
