Good morning and welcome to this month’s Scrap This! Challenge. While some of us are lucky enough to have glorious sunshine at this time of year, many of us are hit by the big chill of January so if you’re sweltering in tropical temperatures or it’s way too cold for you to go outside and snap your own pictures, Katie (katie pertiet), Mel (Britgirl) and Brenda (bbe) have shared some rather ‘cool’ images with us so we can just go ahead and scrap!
Katie’s two images below are from her trip to Iceland, the second image being the ice covered volcano that most recently erupted in Iceland [after this photo was taken]:
Mel’s image makes me want to put on my walking boots and get out there:
And here’s Brenda’s image of a single frosted leaf in all its Winter glory:
Irene (Scrappie Irene) filled her page with one of Katie’s images and added a neat little cluster of perfectly chosen embellishments.
Irene used the following products for her page: Challenge Freebie, Frosted Winter Complete Collection – Katie Pertiet
Katie’s second image struck a chord with Agnieszka (Arte Banale) as she dreams of visiting Iceland one day. Her word art title is perfect for this image.
Here is Agnieszka’s product list: Good Times Layered Template, Blocked Sentiments Brushes and Stamps No. 05, Collage Ephemera No. 01, Traveler Clusters No. 02 Brushes and Stamps – Katie Pertiet; Text Frames: Life 12×12 – Ali Edwards
Linda (earlofoxford) chose to showcase Katie’s image using a large dark border and included the list of countries she has visited directly onto the photo.
Linda’s product list is: Chalkboard Basics: Subtle Patterns Paper Pack No. 01, Map Overlays No. 01, Striped Cardstock: Tidal Wave Value Paper Pack, Photo Corners: Colors No. 01, Away We Go Brushes and Stamps Value Pack, Drop Shadow Styles No. 02 – Katie Pertiet; St. Malo Kit – Lynn Grieveson; Readymade Borders: Traveler No. 01 – Studio Double-D
I’ve been slow in taking my own Winter photo’s this year, so I enjoyed the opportunity to scrap Brenda’s image. It inspired me to go a little artsy using some of Katie’s blendables and an overlay.
Here are the products I used: Challenge Freebie, Painted Chalkboard Sentiments No. 1 (coming soon), Blendable Layers No. 01, Blendable Layers No. 03, Blendable Layers No. 05, Page Blends No. 02, Monochromatics Forest Blends, Monochromatics Spice Blendables, Frosted Winter: Paint, Frosted Fun Element Pack, Fine Lines Border Lines Brushes and Stamps No. 07, Wintery Overlays No. 02, Stamped Words Brushes and Stamps No. 01 – Katie Pertiet
