Challenge #8 is up at Elemental Scraps
This is a FAST FORWARD Challenge! The first team to complete this challenge will have the option of SKIPPING next week's challenge if they choose!
We've all said "someday...". Whether it's "someday, I'm going to get this filing cabinet cleared" or "someday, I'm going to find happiness" or anything in between. So, we want to see your "someday".
In order to allow as much creative license as possible, we have very few stipulations about what you need to use on your layout, but of course there are a few.
- Your layout must contain journaling. Whether you choose for it to be 1 line of journaling, or an entire page of journaling, is up to you.
- Somewhere in your journaling or title it must say "someday". If you want to make the title 'Someday', that's fine. If you would rather make your title something else completely and just mention 'someday' in the journaling, that works too. Even if you happen to have a 'someday' word art you want to use, that's fine as well! As long as we can see 'someday' on your page somewhere, it counts!
- We love elements here at Elemental Scraps, so of course we would love to see some on your page. At least 10 of them! But, use your creativity! If you want to use 10 pieces of ribbon and no other elements, that's fine! If you pick one button, 3 staples, 2 flowers, 3 ribbons and a frame, that works too. If in doubt, feel free to add more.
- I am currently obsessed with tone on tone papers. So, I'd like the background of your page to be a tone on tone patterned paper. If you don't have any tone on tone papers in your stash, you can use the one below. Otherwise, tone on tone paper you already have will work.
**Alphas with elements as part of their design, ie. a staple or a stitch, do not count toward the 10. Neither do the items in a pre-made cluster. If you add a flower that has a button and a stitch built into it, that is 1 item. If YOU build a flower with a button and stitch by adding all 3 items to the page, then it counts as 3. Only items that you physically add to the page count toward the 10 required elements. Pre-constructed items and clusters count as one item. If it's one .png file, it's one item. If it's 2 .png files, it's 2 items. And so on. Papers do not count toward the 10, even if it's a shaped paper mat. Journaling spots or frames made of paper, however, do. Remember, it's a minimum of 10, so if you are in doubt, you can always add more!**
**The journaling and title must be 2 separate items. A multi-word title can not be counted as journaling, and the journaling can not be considered the title.**
**We would prefer to see a photo, but if you're moved to do a journaling only layout with no photo, that's ok too! However you want to handle the photo situation is ok by us.**
**You do not have to use ES products on your layout - but of course we'd love it if you did!**
**Tone on tone paper means any paper with the background and the pattern being 2 shades of the same color. Dark purple base with light purple damask. Light blue base with dark blue dots. Kraft base with brown dots. And so on. See our example paper for a good idea of what we mean, and if it's still not clear, feel free to use ours.**
**Your background must be visible and clearly "the background". Obviously you can have stuff on top of it, so long as we can still see that it's the paper you used as the base for your layout. Feel free to layer stuff on top of it, just don't obscure it completely and you're good!**
**If you are using our paper for your base, you are free to recolor it to match your layout, provided it maintains it's tone on tone appearance and the pattern is still visible.**
That's it! We truly hope you put your own spin on this challenge and think of what "someday" means to you. It can be funny or serious, traditional or artsy, just be YOU! We can't wait to see what you create!
