A Scrap Challenge (or two)

A new layout for the IOD Hybrid contest and the Scrap For A Cure color challenge. My DT friend a brilliantly talented designer, Rebecca, made a fabulous cardboard mini album with exposed corrugation, and I've been hooked on her technique ever since. The patterned paper is IOD, and the transparent accent strips are from their hybrid collection. I resized them, printed them out on sticker paper, cut them up and colored them with pencils. The journal box is a scanned portion of an IOD paintable, with journal lines added. I re-colored my photo in Sepia, and used watercolors and gouache to finish the layout. The butterflies are Heidi Swapp. The color challenge was to scrap your favorite color, so of course it's green. Green just happens to be the Arty Girlz challenge as well, this week! I had to add the splashes of red, because that one's a close second! The scan makes everything look a little crooked, since it was stitched, but I'm a little off myself, so I guess it works!
