March 28th to March 30th was TSE first ever Blind Scrapping, and I have to say I thoroughly enjoyed it, would definately partake in one again! So different to seeing a sketch or being told to use a certain kit! We actually had 17 scrappers complete the Blind Scrapping at TSE, which is a fantastic turnout for us! I was so proud to see everyones layouts and the interpretations were mind blowing! Thanks Kristine for creating the Blind Scrapping, can't wait until next time!
My entry into the Blind ScrappingHere are the instructions if you would like to have a go yourself!
STEP 1 – Trim patterned paper #1 approx. 2cm around each side. Distress the edges and ink (if you have some). Position on your page without attaching. Cut a small length of your ribbon and layer under the upper righthand corner of patterned paper #1. Adhere the ribbon and then the patterned paper in place on the cardstock/base paper.
STEP 2 – Add a border around the inside or outside edge of patterned paper #1. Take patterned paper #2 and cut it to fit 30cm long by 10cm wide. Adhere to the lower section of your page.
STEP 3 – Attach your ribbon on the left hand side of the page so that it overlaps patterned paper #2
STEP 4 – Choose a 5x7 or 6x4 photo. You will be attaching your photo to the page making sure that it is layered over the ribbon on the left side of page. Either before or after attaching your photo, frame your photo in some manner. Eg. Doodle a border, use photo corners, distress the edge and ink, rub ons etc.
STEP 5 – Position title above the photo.
STEP 6 - Position journaling on the right hand side of page.
STEP 7 – Add date of photo or date layout was created on bottom right hand side of layout
STEP 8 – Add matching buttons and chosen second and/or third embellishment (it can be whatever you like!) on lower part of page and top right hand corner
