This month I've worked on an 8 1/2" x11" page (landscape orientation) of Kraft cardstock.
I've cut 6 x10 1/2" long strips of different widths (depending on the size of your scraps).
Image

Distressed and inked the edges of the strips (and the cardstock base) and laid them across the page and stuck them down when I was happy with how they looked and the spacings.
Image

I've then cut out 4 different sized circles (2 of each) from a completely different scrap of paper just by drawing around different sized lids and roughly cutting them out.....no need for a perfect circle. Distress and ink the edges.
Image

then scrumple them up.....
Image

and add a small drop of glue to the centre of each working your way from largest to smallest on top.
Image

when the glue dries, cut them in half or close enough to half and give the cut edge an ink if you've been inking.
Image

Decide where your photo will go and add a scrap of lace to the bottom of it and add your cut circle flowers to the edge of the strips.
Image

Then you can cut 6 or more strips from any scrap paper that will blend in and put them randomly over the larger background strips and add some buttons to your circle flowers.
Image

Image

You can mount this 8 1/2" x 11" page on a 12 x 12 if you prefer that size.
Image

Have fun .................
I'll draw a name from the entries in the gallery folder at month's end and pop a little RAK in the mail to the winner.

Do I have to do this as a 8.5 x 11? Or can I alter to a 12 x 12?

Cool. I'm loving the look of this and will try to give it a bash. My rak arrived on wednesday and I've already used some of it. Perfect for the 123 challenge. With the mint colouring. Will post on my blog tonight. Thanks again. Xoxoxo

I love mine Julze - I just got the basic Heidi Swapp one here:

It's lasted really well, but I do have my eye on the Prima rasp tool - we got to play with it at the prima roadshow:

Oh... I have a shoebox on paper scraps - just don't throw away my scraps. This is such a clever idea of a layout.

you can use your scissors to do the same thing Julze - but the distressors are only about $2.95 and you should be able to find them somewhere in NZ
