Week # 4 - Scrappin' Moms Idol 3

We are now halfway through with the challenges and the fun continues! So this week, go ahead and…


Grab your scrapbook supplies and follow these steps:

#1 Use the word, "PLAY" to inspire you on your layouts.
It does not have to be your title or even part of your journaling.
Use the word to inspire you on your theme.

#2 “PLAY” with your patterned papers and embellishments! Here’s how…

al•ter (ôl t r) VERB: tr. - To change or make different; modify: altered my will.
- To adjust (a garment) for a better fit.

VERB: intr. - To change or become different.

  • Alter AT LEAST one of the patterned papers you are going to use on your layout.
How do you alter? You can punch holes, you can doodle on it, spray glimmer mist, paint it, make it look entirely different! Something that we wouldn't recognize the paper you have used.

This is a good way to give your "old", long forgotten papers a makeover. Or maybe you just feel that the patterned paper can still be improved from its original state.

Also, show a BEFORE and AFTER of how you altered your patterned paper.

  • Alter AT LEAST one kind of embellishment you are going to use on your layout.
How? Add brads or blings on your buttons, or apply rub-on on your ribbons, punch shapes on your chipboard etc.

Explain how you created/altered in your write-up.

#3 We want to see photos AT PLAY, not necessarily kids playing. You can scrap about you and your hubby at play! Be imaginative when you PLAY.

#4 Use any (or all if you wish) of these colors:
- Yellow
- Orange
- Teal

You may mix the color/s you chose with other colors not specified in this challenge. Your chosen color/s should comprise at least 50% of your layout.

Why these color for PLAY:
- Orange combines the energy of red and the happiness of yellow. It is associated with joy, sunshine, and the tropics. Orange represents enthusiasm, fascination, happiness, creativity, determination, attraction, success, encouragement, and stimulation.
- Yellow is the color of sunshine. It's associated with joy, happiness, intellect, and energy.

- Teal, also called Teal blue, that color is blue and green mixed together. The color gets its name from the fact that it surrounds the eyes of the common teal, a member of the duck family.

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