Welcome to the official launching of S.W.A.T Scrap Warriors Advanced Training! We are so excited to get going with our drills and basic training. Just to recap, we will have 2 Drills (challenges) per month. With each drill there will a prize that has been has donated by an amazing sponsor! Drills are issued on the 1st & 3rd Saturday of each month and you will have until the 25th of each month to add your project and a winner will be selected from both drills at the end of the month. If you participate in both challenges you double your chances of being a winner!
Just to whet your appetite, here's what you are playing for ...
Got your attention? Well then, without further ado, here is Challenge #1 - Its all about you - make a LO all about you and show the world who you are!
I have been working on a SMASH Book/Art Journal documenting my final year of my 30's (...sigh...) and one of the lists I'd started several months ago was called "39 things I've Learned So Far". I was originally going to put it into my 365 to 40 SMASH Book but decided to turn it into a layout for this challenge instead.
To create the back ground I trimmed a piece of white card stock to 11" x 11" and then wrote out my entire list on it. I wasn't worried about covering anything up as it was my intention for this to be a back ground image. Everything else was just layered on top. I've been following along with the new Two Peas video series called Scrap Your Stash and the one that aired at the time of creating this layout challenged us to use Christmas papers and products on a non-Christmas layout. All the papers on this layout are Christmas ones! I've got some Dear Lizzy, Stampin' Up, MME and probably something else that I can't remember. Really fun to look at those papers for their colours, not their patterns or themes!!
Here are some detail shots.
My title - really using up all my letter stickers!!
Lots of layers of stickers and gems and brads really finish things off and make it fun!
Thanks for stopping by today. I hope to see you all participating over at SWAT! Oh, and if you're interested in my list (39 Things I've Learned So Far) please leave your email address in the comments section below and I'll email you a copy. I'm still hoping to turn it into a SMASH page ... stay tuned!!
