3 to Inspire Challenge with Trina

Good morning everyone! Our weekly 3-to-Inspire Challenge is here. You can play along with the prompts to earn a chance to win. Whether you do traditional scrapbooking, pocket pages or faith art, we'd love to see what you do with this week's challenge.

Are you ready for your prompts? Here we go!

  1. Create layers behind a photo(s) using patterned paper & use at least 3 layers.
  2. Use something "found" on your page.
  3. Use a painting medium (like mist, acrylic or watercolors).
Here is my take on the challenge:

This layout was made with a mix of the August 2017 Photobooth Scrapbooking and Pocket Life kits, available here. This page was very playful to create, my layers aren't neatly stacked and I let the embellishments dance on the page. I started off with a splattering of different colors of Heidi Mist Colorshine. I think my new favorite Colorshine is Sweet Mint.

Between the new Maggie Holmes Carousel line and the pairings of lots of Citrus Twist exclusives, there was so much to select from.

I'm loving the new alphabet Thickers in the scrapbooking kit. The chipboard is quite thin and very easy to stitch on, so out came my sewing machine. Yes, there is a little bit of frayed fabric peeking out as one of my layers. (My mom loved to sew and had a traveling quilt booth so I grew up surrounded by fabrics.)

My bottom layer was tissue. I simply folder up some tissue paper, cut it with my roller blade and glued multiple layers of it at the base of my layering. I finished my layered photo off with random placement of paper ephemera  (from the Citrus Twist Photobooth ephemera pack), chipboard stickers and puffy stickers. The embroidery floss is from my embroidery basket.

Well, I hope this challenge inspires you today. Now, it's your turn! Use the three prompts to create your own projects and share them with us in the CTK Gallery and/or on our Facebook Fan Page by Saturday, August 12th, for a chance to win. You can also upload to Instagram and tag us @citrustwistkits.
