    Weekend Wildcard Challenge 9/7/19

    LOL, I'm late to this challenge, feels like I've been working on this layout for weeks! Well, I have actually. I chose the second color palette, with the blue-green scarf. Blessings

    It sounds like everyone went to the restaurant! I might have to try the other class, just to be contrary - but I have a lot of catching up to do. As for the cocktails, I'll sit on the edge of the water and make sure no one drowns, after those cocktails you all had! 20th Sept Oh dear! It's a good job there is no one but us staying in the lodge right now. Who was that singing at the top of their voices at 2am? Add something drink related to your layout. When you are finished post your layout in the ScrapGirls Retreat Gallery.

    Ha ha, funny thing is, I really WAS at a spa this past weekend! I didn't end up getting a massage like I wanted - we were only there a couple of days and I had a conference to go to. I ate a little too well, though!

    Love this collection, and the alpha goes so well with your photos! Great patterned papers, and clusters!

    WW Challenge - alphas

    I'll echo everyone else, love how the alpha mimics the totem pole! I always really like your clusters, too, this one is no exception!

    Wow, this is so creative and eye-catching! I think I have this alpha, I must go see! Love the heart scatter, and the blended patterns.

    These are beautiful photos! Great idea to mix and match the alphas, too - I think I've only ever used two different alphas at a time, but I'll make it a goal to try to use several like you've done!
  14. I know not everyone is comfortable using alphas – I for one actually enjoy them, and we have so many incredible alpha sets in the SG Shop. I have had plans for a certain layout brewing for a while, and it involves building my title a specific way using an alpha, so I thought I’d make this into a challenge. Your challenge this weekend is to use an alpha in your layout title – not necessarily for the entire title, but at least for one letter. One technique I have found interesting is to use a large letter at the beginning of the title to make it pop, or use one large letter that several words share. Or, mix and match alpha sets to create a funky fun layout, or tilt the letters and place them off-kilter… throw away those guide lines! This is a great way to overcome the need to make your alpha look perfect. Get creative, try out something new! Post your layout in the Weekend Wildcard Challenge gallery, and then come back to this thread and post a link to your layout so we can admire it!

    16th Sept Add a leaf and a flower to your layout. Finish off your season colour layout. Remember your layout does not have to be about a season, just make sure you use the colours from the swatch you picked. Post your finished layout in the ScrapGirls Retreat Gallery. As for me, now that I'm back from my conference, I need to catch up on the Retreat activities - welcome to a brand new week! 😄

    Love the layouts so far! 😄

    Oh wow, I love this! Love the colors, love the alpha, with it's wood look, and it's so perfect for your photo. Nice job!
  18. My 12 year old will love this layout - her school last year performed the Wizard of OZ! (She helped run lights.) Love your alpha - and see, tilting it all crazy helps get over trying to make it perfect! 😂

    I chose the second tutorial, how to decorate fonts with brushes; I used a very light brush behind the font, but then decided to use it over my whole background paper because I really liked it. Then I used a brush and styles and a stroke around the larger font in the title. This is our new kitten: Delta Dawn
