An 'Ugly' challenge for you
(click on photo)
I created this for an 'Ugly' challenge. But I actually rather like it even if I didn't like these papers to start off with.
This weeks challenge at The Studio goes like this:
Step 1: First of all, go and pick the 2 ugliest, most mismatched papers in your collection, that you honestly can't ever see yourself using. Take a photo of them.
Step 2: Yes, you saw this coming, didn't you?! Make a page using those papers. You can add any other embellishments you like, but those 2 papers must play a prominent role in your design! Take a photo of it.
Step 3: Upload your layout AND your horrendous papers 'before' photo.
The papers must be obviously ugly to begin with - no choosing something you secretly like! Good luck!"
I went with these Crate papers. Although I do love Crate, these weren't from my favourite collection, but they came in a kit ages ago.
It does actually feel good to have used them.
I've used chipboard butterflies to draw around and cut out. Then I cut very thin strips of the paper and stuck onto my page to journal on.
Let me know which papers you end up selecting.
Have fun : )
