once upon a night

hello scrappy friends!

it's a bit last minute, but here is my entry for ROUND 4 {indeed!!! i never thought i'll make it! THANK YOU to all of you who voted for me!!!} at the SUPREME SCRAP TOURNAMENT.

this week the challenge was "HIDE & SEEK".

the details:
create a double page layout with eight or more pictures {no duplicates};
create three or more hidden elements on your pages - flaps, tags, etc.;
not allowed - all kinds of ink (including spray ink and misting ink), paint, stamps, gesso and chalk;  
deadline - SUNDAY, march 16, 21.00 CET

so here is what i came up with -


all the pictures are from my sister's birthday party. the dress code was green, purple or black or a costume, which is really not you. 

this is a close up of page one with two hidden elements:

page two with two hidden elements:

i mixed a very vintage MY MIND'S EYE collections - BOHEMIA and 29th STREET, with one of their more recent lines - LOST and FOUND. i used also different colour cardstock and PRIMA marketing ledger pad.

the biggest challenge for me was to create a dynamic design with depth and layers without any colouring agents. i drew my inspiration from a GRAPHIC 45 workshop from scrapbook generations.

i started with white cardstock and MME pattern papers. i did some punching and distressed the edges of some of the papers to separate them from each other, without inking their sides.

i embellished my layout with mulberry paper roses and swirly die cuts. i used MARIANNE DESIGN dies for the leaves.

 for my first hidden element i decided to use a tag. i decorated it with organza ribbon and natural tread.

the fancy punched edge i made with MARTHA STEWART "scroll heart" deep edge punch.

for my second hidden element i used SIZZIX pop up die and mini hearts magnetic dies. the LOVE chippie is from CREATIVE EMBELLISHMENTS. i covered it with SPARKLE N SPRINKLE fiery brown embossing powder.

i created my third hidden element with the same SIZZIX die, but this time instead of a message, i used a picture as a pop up element. the good times corner i cut with DIE-VERSIONS corner concepts die.

for my fourth and final hidden element i used a book-like frame. i due cut two tag-tops and used them to close the picture book.

for the title i used MY MIND'S EYE glittery sticker alphabet. i adhered the flags with mounting tape to my page to five it a 3-d effect. 

i used CANVAS CORP hemp cord to "hang" the banner title.

i hope you enjoyed today's post!

wish me luck this round! 

hugs 'n smiles,
