Technique challenge - edges (ends Feb 17)

For this challenge you need to get creative with your edges. At least one paper and one picture on your layout should have something other than basic, straight edges. They can be torn, scallped, distressed, soft... whatever you like.

Layouts should be posted by midnight (eastern) on Feb 17th!

Please remember to remove your siggys!

I really like this idea Stephanie! I haven't scrapped at all since the crop, so maybe this will inspire me.

The picture of Anna is horribly crooked and please excuse my handwriting- but I'm just so utterly thrilled that I can participate for once! This is a 4.75 square card. It'll be their invitation to their party and was 100% inspired by this challenge.


Hmm... that didn't picture so well. It says 2 special birthdays Anna- 4 on the 4th Katie- 1 on the 1st 2 Golden Birthdays. Inside says 1 special party! You're invited....

Perfect challenge for this layout I was working on! Smile I already had the edges softened on the photo, so I also did a little effect to the edge of the cloud.

4. So I was okay with being simplier but think these still turned out wonderfully.

Awww, I'm so glad you could do this Michelle! The invites look great. I love the fact that the birthdays coincide with the dates this year - how special!

I love the updside down sheep with the big yawn page, very cute!

Cute layout. Not exactly what I had in mind though. Edges would be the outer edge rather than the background. I absolute love the layout though. I like how you faded the background though. I did a challenge on another site once where we did exactly that except made the background even darker so that norhting really showed. It is a great affect and you did it beautifully.

Well, I'm not happy with it, but this is my entry so far: (I'm reserving the right to change it.) Wink LOL!

"embrace today"

I used sandpaper to distress the edge of the photo and tore the edges of the paper.

I'm not super happy with mine, but I've been out of mojo... Hopefully I can come up with something else. Sorry the pictures kind of crappy. I've had a very needy toddler lately.

Okay, not my favorite layout and I spent a LOT of time on it ... at the same time, I had a lot of fun with the edges. Smile I would have gone with the "love" theme regardless of this time of year since the photos are from Oct (meaning I wasn't trying to go Valentine-ish). I stamped the date in the lower right corner with the pink ink that I edged the page & photo in but it's hard to see in the photo.

Tore the paper heart mat, sanded and inked the rectangle photo, inked the edge of the 12x12 paper. And I cut the heart photo with the Cricut, LOTS of trial and error on that one before I put the real photo in (glad I have a ton of spare photos lying around to practice on)

The edge on the blue paper is with an edger scissor and I tore the edge on the picture. I didn't feel very creative with this one:confused:

I finally get to participate in a challenge, this one took me forever and I'm still not sure if I am happy with all the black at the top so if anyone has any suggestions feel free to let me know

Melissa- what if you moved the photo and journalling up and put a picture of him and you 11 months later? Kind of a then and now enjoying the quiet times?

The page is gorgeous btw- but I see what you mean about the black.
