Anna Louise Bowkis has started a challenge called, “365 Days.” This challenge began on Jan 1st, but it’s only been a few days so should be relatively easy to catch up. The plan is to take a photo each day and create a layout each week. At the end of the year, you will end up with 52 scrapbook layouts!
Do you remember our post recently showing some altered clothespins? Well, here are another couple of ideas: Annette Scholtz, of South Africa, made these pretty altered clothespins using her scrapbooking supplies.
We also recently posted about altered lampshades. Here are some more ideas (from BHG) including this pretty one using peel and stick designs and a doodled one here. I can just picture a cute one designed by Adrienne Looman, doodler extraordinaire!
Also from BHG, is this great idea for enlarging a photo and creating a gigantic scrapbook layout to hang on the wall. The photo is printed in sections, applied to canvas, then embellished on top of that. You could also do the same thing with a section printed copy of a digital scrapbook layout.
Have you heard of DaWanda? It is a new online platform for designers, artists and artisans to set up a shop and sell their handmade items. There is no listing fee, only a commission fee of 5% upon the sale of an item.
