Entries for Technique Inspired Challenge 2 - Embellish Your Photos!

For Technique Inspired Challenge 2, the challenge was to Embellish your photos instead of leaving the photo as it is. Here are the entries i received...
"sweet boy" by Edleen
Here's mine of my cutie pie and framed his photo with embellishments. I couldn't find an A so doodled my own. Punched holes in the chipboard heart and wrote my own Quote for my Little guy. :)

Feli says:
What a cool way of embellishing the photo! I love how the various texts go above the photo...

"Sexy"by Lady Grace

For this challenge, I used non-scrapbooking supplies found in our sewing room. I added embellies on my whole body shot photograph to emphasize the title.

Feli says:
Love her use of the thread and all the other materials to create this highly textured layout!

"i am 3" by Sophia

I simply doodled with dots on one of the photos as part of the title.

Feli says:
Love how the the no. 3 on the photo is being highlighted! What a bright and cheery page with the use of Sassafras supplies!

"soba ni iru" by Tessah

I directly attached those embellies on the edges of my photo to give a different look. I also added a bling.

Feli says:
Love the hearts embellies on the photo! Such a sweet and romantic red page!

Here's another layout i received a little late... But i still love for everyone to admire this layout! Cos i love her take!!

"make a wish" by June


I used bling and a few other things to frame the picture.

Feli says:
What a gorgeous page! i totally love the cluster of embellies and the photo is superb!! :)

Groovie Picnic album...

Here's what i did for Bind It All's April Springtime Challenge... The challenge is to create a Bind-it-All project of any kind and use the BIA in some way….the theme is Spring! So here's a 6x6 mini album i did using some old photos...
I used my Zutter v2.0 and the 3/8" red wire for this album... The rest are all of my Spring stash! love them!! :)
Some of these pages also show how i add emphasis to the photos.. Just right for my own challenge!
I also punched holes on the other edge of the cover for the fiber and to attach a small photo... the punched out papers from the cover was used to create a border around the photo.. hehe!

Created a flap page inside the album..

Don't the cute little chicks just match our position in the photo? :P
that's it for my Spring mini album! Hope you like it! :)

{energy} doggie

Here's my take for my own Technique Inspired Challenge... I kept the layout simple to keep the focus on the photos....
The photos were matted with PPs... And since the doggie is the highlight in this layout, i emphasized it using puffy paint, stickles, blings and also Robin's Nest dew drops...
Also added some alpha stickers onto the photos...

I can't wait to see what you all will come up with! :)

FeliScraps: Technique Inspired Challenge 2 - Embellish Your Photos!

Here's the Technique Inspired challenge. Here's the technique to inspire you... Embellish your photos instead of leaving the photo as it is. You can highlight parts of the photos by doodling or adding other embellishments directly onto your photo! The challenge is to use this technique to inspire you to create a layout/project...

Why do we do this? To make our photos pop and become the focal point! Here are some examples that I have done on my past layouts...

Stickles to highlight the electric guitar and shades...

Adhesive badge with a speech bubble on the photo...

Stickles and glossy accent on the photo to highlight the word 'better' to form part of the title...

A frame over the photo...

Hope this will give you some ideas on what you can do, there are many more other ways! To find out more about how the Technique Inspired challenge works, check it out here ...

Email me at feliscraps_challenge [at] with a maximum of 3 photos of your layout / project with a description of it by 29th April, 12 noon. Voting starts right after all the layouts / projects are posted on the blog!
