Janice's Paper Folding Challenge

We all have certain techniques that especially catch our eye when they’re used on a layout, and for me paper folding is one of them. I seem unable to pass up a closer look at a page with folds! So my challenge to you this month is to add a little extra dimension and personality to a page by finding a folding technique you like (try searching for “paper folding” on Pinterest) and incorporating it into your design. You can add pleats, make rosettes, create faux quilting looks (like I did on my layout) or fold origami shapes. There really are many ways to use this technique. I hope participating in this challenge helps you to fall in love with folding like I have. Have fun with this; I can’t wait to see what you all create!

Danielle's Mixing Texture Challenge

My challenge for you this month could be one that will make you step out of the box, and it could be one that you are used to doing when you create a layout or project.

I challenge you to create a layout or card mixing 3 different textures.  The textures you choose are completely up to you!

In my layout, the textures I included are:

Mist (paint)
