Last Minute Textile Inspiration

The Textile Challenge deadline is quickly approaching! Email me your entries by the end of the day Friday February 29th - which is also Eileen's son Griffin's birthday (he is going to be 2!! Ok - really 8, but I love the whole leap day baby thing!) You can email me your entries to challenges @ either as a .jpg picture or scan or a link to where you have posted it online. I will reply to your email that I got it, so if you have sent something and not heard back from me, then I didn't get it!

On this page Jamie Harper used the Textile Squares, Big Timber Line Tall, Extra Large and Large to design the border down the left side of the page. She stamped the letters first, then colored them in with a red watercolor pencil. She accented along the letters in the title with Borderline: Straight and Narrow.

Eileen used blue paint to change the color of the textiles. She used Key Lime Tsukineko VersaMagic ink to color the green Textile Scallops. She stamped on each textile to add texture and dimension using Metro Squares, Swiss Dots, Hanging by a Thread and Backgrounds Medium.

Jamie really went above and beyond for this page!! On the picture Jamie printed 2 of the same photo, adhered one to the layout and the second she cut around the adorable little girl and used it as a mask to stamp over the background with the word background stamp from Olde World Squares.

Jamie used ink to change the color of the Textile Scallops and layered them to add depth to her flowers. She used Boulder Skyline for the title. Finally she stamped the butterfly from BoHo Buzz onto a piece of paper and then cut it out to add the adorable embellishment to the top right corner of the page.

I was so hoping to get this done, but I have been down with the flu for the past week and a half. Hopefully I will feel better soon and get a chance to work on the LO!

AH! I have to get to work! I love these samples and the last layout especially--love the stamping around the picture--so clever!
