Playing along with the Scrap factor

UK scrappers is currently holding a Scrap factor competition to find some of the best scrappers in the UK. Alongside the competition is a chance for others to play along with the competitors using the same prompts.

Week twos prompt was to take a print advert i.e. an advert from a magazine or newspaper and use that as the inspiration for your LO. I chose this advert as I had a photo I wanted to scrap for my version of the Project Life album:I liked the white square in the middle and originally envisioned the title, main image and writing in this section to be three distinct areas perhaps in large blocks of patterned paper. In the end I turned the make up bag image into my photo and used the smaller images around the make up bag as my embellishment cues.

The advert writing became my scalloped area and journalling spot and the title was placed in a similar place to the advert.

To match the patterned paper, I pulled out the blanket stitching element and mirrored that around the edge of my central paper.
