3-to-Inspire Challenge with Trina

It's time for our weekly 3-to-Inspire challenge and a chance to win happy mail! For this challenge I played with our Driftwood Pocket Life kit, current and past kit stamps, plus a couple of items from my stash and the Driftwood Main scrapbook kit.

Here are your three prompts:
  1. Use stamps to create your journaling.
  2. Cut up pattern paper into strips and create a layered background with them. 
  3. Use a product you haven't used before.

Here is my finished page.

Use Stamps for Journaling
Use stamps (I used multiple!) to create your journaling. Have fun with this.

Pattern Paper Strips
Cut strips of pattern paper, layer them and stitch. I cut my strips with scissors. The width and length are varied to create interest. After the strips were stitched down, I tucked ephemera in between some of the strips. One strip layer was created with pieces of white doily.

Product I Haven't Used Before
My product is Nuvo Crystal Drops. (We also carry the Nuvo Crystal Drops in the Citrus Twist Kits Shop.) The Main Driftwood scrapbooking kit has a bottle included in it in fabulous Neptune (used on this layout). These drops were fun to use. I applied them directly onto my page and accidentally smeared one as I put some finishing touches on my page. Next time, I'll apply them directly then walk away from my desk for a few hours while they dry. After about 5 hours the enamel drops were dry enough to come back to my layout for more play.

My 3-to-Inspire page also has a corresponding pocket page. I kept my pockets super simple with an emphasis on pictures and journaling since the facing layout page was busier. The little epoxy stickers in this month's Driftwood pocket page kit are perfect for your PL!

Here is a close-up of my finished layers.

Now it's your turn. Use the three prompts to create your own project, share it with us here in the gallery and/or our Facebook Forum! Make sure to include the date of the challenge (7/23) in the title of your gallery submission. I can't wait to see what you create!
