This week, I have been trying to get a little more variety going in my digiscrapping by doing a few designer challenges at OScraps.  I recently completed three different challenges resulting in three very different styles of layouts.  It was a lot of fun for me.  And I tried something new, which is always good.

This first layout was for the My Little Happy Box designer challenge.  For this challenge, we were given a sketch and we had to create a layout based on that sketch.  You were allowed to flip the sketch or otherwise alter it, as long as you could see the sketch in the final layout.  Flipping the sketch 90 degrees counter-clockwise is what I did for my layout.  And here is the final result.


Created using Of The Essence, Mod Borders and Profiles from Fei Fei’s Stuff and Unscripted No 4 Pure Affection from Taylormade Designs

I just realized that the above layout doesn’t have any paint. I didn’t think that was possible for me these days.  I guess I was wrong.  And i think it looks fine without paint.

This next layout was created for the Dido Designs Notion to Scrap challenge.  For this challenge, I had to use a mask on the layout.  (In simple terms, a mask allows you to change the appearance of a layer in Photoshop without actually changing the original image on that layer.)  So for this challenge, I took an element in PNG format and used it to change the shape of my original flower photo.  The element was not originally intended to be a mask, but I think it worked really well for that purpose.  I am happy with the final results.


Created using using Purple Love Magic Pack and Dream Tomorrow Notion Set from Dido Designs and Emboss Dress Ups 6 from Merkeley Designs. Font is Janda Elegant Handwriting.

Of the three layouts I am sharing today, it is probably the most similar in style to what I have been creating lately. That may be why it is my favorite of the three.

This final layout was created for the Mary Pop Designs designer spotlight challenge.  Creating this layout definitely took me out of my comfort zone.  These days, I am usually either creating a digital art journaling page or something with a more traditional scrapping feel.  I rarely, if ever, create a page like the one below.  In spite of being totally outside my comfort zone, I think the page turned out okay.
