Week 1 {ODBDLYLS9} Scrapbook Challenge

It's September and our weather has finally fallen below 100 degrees! With the changing temperatures brings a new ODBD Let Your Light Shine Scrapbook Challenge! A few weeks ago, I created some fall leaves using vellum. I hadn’t used vellum in a long time! I have a stash that just sits in my drawer. I know there are other crafters that haven’t used vellum in a while either. So, this month I thought it would be fun to challenge ourselves with vellum. So, your challenge for September is to: create a layout of any size using vellum and ODBD stamp(s). Try something new with vellum. Use vellum for flowers, leaves, journaling boxes, color it, anything! So reach into that old stash and have fun! We can’t wait to see those ODBD and vellum creations!

For my 8x8 'vellum inspiration', I chose to color vellum with distress stains. It colors the vellum beautifully and dries quickly especially with my Heat It tool! I used distress stains on the flowers, fence, and crochet border. The ODBD sets I used were the Fence Border die to cut the vellum fence along the bottom, the Scripture Series 2 set for the scripture at the top of the page, Sweet William Small for the red vellum flowers, and Serve the Lord for the vellum crochet border in the upper right corner. Whew, now that's a lot of vellum but it was fun!

Papers: Prima Printery, Jenni Bowlin ledger paper, Paper Trey Ink black cs, misc. vellum
Our Daily Bread Designs Stamps and Dies: Fence Border die, Scripture Series 2, Sweet William Small, Serve the Lord
Stamp Ink and Stains: Archival Ink jet black, Tim Holtz Distress Stain peeled paint (for fence) and fired brick (for flowers and border)
Embellishments: Basic Grey rub-ons and chipboard alpha, leaves from Wild Orchid Crafts, Zva Creative flourishes, Paper Trey Ink buttons, sewing machine

To see more information on the September Let Your Light Shine Challenge, please see the details in this post here.  Remember, you can win a $20 gift certificate to the ODBD store.  You have all of September to enter and play along! We hope you will join in the fun! Have a blessed day!
