Who wants to play peek-a-boo with scrapbooking paper? This new “Playing with Paper” challenge allows scrappers to use papers in a unique way! Be sure to snatch up this great freebie pack provided by Katie Pertiet and join in on the fun. (You don’t have to use the freebie for this challenge, but who doesn’t love a freebie?)
The details – Your patterned paper(s) should be your bottom layer. The idea is for it to “peek” through a solid paper. You could “cut out” shapes in the solid paper revealing the patterned paper underneath.
Post your page in the Weekly Challenge Gallery by 11pm (EST) on Saturday, August 17th and you will be entered in the random drawing to win a $5 Designer Digitals gift certificate. Please put “Playing With Paper” in your title or description so I don’t miss your page! The winner will be announced on Sunday, August 18th.
