SWTS (Scrapping With The Stars)

i already posted my first 2 layouts here...and for the succeeding round, i did 2 layouts based on Elsie Flannigan's and Mimi Schramm's (of the dt member at cc) style.

Mimi's style is classic with minimal embellishment. Her journaling is handwritten usually done on one of the background or layered paper.

Elsie Flannigan: ribbons, stitiching, paint, buttons, doodling, handwritten journaling..i decided to challenge myself further by making my own background paper with elsie's style in mind...with a punched out 1 inch in diameter circle taped to a bottle, i stamped the images using paint. then i made small circles around it using a sharpie pen paint.

Tim Holtz and Jen Dubbs

When i found out the stars for that round, i immediately tried looking for tim holtz's layout but couldnt..i only found 3 and i noticed that his pages are simple compared to his projects. i tried to incorporate his projects on my layout so i made a tag..i applied crackle paint then embossed with clear utee to protect the cracks...did a lot of inking and used metal embellishments, vintage image and an embossed key.

Jen Dubbs: like some of the previous stars, her style is also a simple one. she layers pp in a classic and linear way. always with handwritten journaling..i tried to imitate the colors in some of her layouts too..

* there were i think more or less 30 participants at the beginning..not sure though..i made it to top 6, but wasn't able to move on to the final round...
