2 Designers Together Make 2 Great Layouts

This challenge is going to come in two parts. The first part is as follows. You are going to choose collections from 2 or more different designers. Once you’ve chosen your collections you are going to work only with the embellishments for this layout. The object is to marry the elements from different designers collections together to form one cohesive LO. The trick this time is that you must not use any papers from the collections, only embellishments, and any recoloring should be minimal. So, either create a new paper using the embellishments or use a solid background. Now build a layout and see if you can make these different designer’s work blend well. When you’re through, you’ll realize that you can often use elements from different kits together beautifully.

Check out this link for an example of how I blended Durin Eberhardts “Almost Red Embellishments” with Shalae Tippets Elementary Days and Elementary Days 2 Embellishments. Nature's Jewel

If you have any questions, I’ll be back in town on Tuesday the 5th. Have fun! Tune in on the 15th for part two of our challenge! Can’t wait to see everyone’s work. You can upload your challenge Here Make sure you place a link in this thread so that everyone can see what you’ve done.

Whew...now this is a CHALLENGE!
Gonna give it a go though...may take a few days... hehehe
We could learn a lot from crayons...
Some are sharp, some are pretty. Some are dull while others are bright.
Some have weird names. But they all exist nicely in the same box.

OK, I got me one- had to go shopping (oh darn!); good thing there's a 20% off sale this weekend!

I used the Cosmopolitan Slate Collection by Cheryl Barber,
The Frosty Fall Alphabet by Melissa Renfro,
and the Blissed Out Collection by Betsy Lombardi.

And, if ya'll hadn't noticed, this is yet another travel page- Seattle was early August, just before we hit California. I have to say, I love my job- who else will pay me to go from NY to WA to CA to DC in one month!

Here is my LO. I think I have it in the correct gallery. It was freeing to use elements from more than one kit - but my computer didn't like having so much opened up at the same time!
