yep, I renamed for this week Tuesday to Thursday since I couldn't get my tush in gear to get this done & posted by Tuesday. I don't want to hold this up any longer though, even though I haven't finished this yet. So I'll come back to add my pics of my page & actual times it took me.
Anyway, Today's technique/tutorial is: Color Blocking
Approximate time from start to finish: I'm going to estimate 10-20 minutes. For those that have pics already in mind to scrap, and who don't waste tons of time like I do picking out paper, this will probably be quicker.
Difficulty: I'm going to say a 1.
Suggestions: Great way to use of some scrap paper.
Here are some great pages I've seen with this technique.
**Remember, if you give this technique a try by 11:59 PM MT on 4/30/12 and post a picture in this thread, you will get 5 points toward the post/scrap challenge!**
Love it! It's something new for me to try that should be easy. I've already got pics and a title figured out...now if Jaylen takes a nap later and DH doesn't need help with making product for an upcoming show I should have some time
I was up till 1am working on a 2-pager for this and finally had to go to bed. Nicole's right, she really did make it look easy. And, it is....just don't do what I did by mistake and am paying for it now....I took my pictures and cut them down to whatever made the picture look good instead of making them a consistent size so I was fighting it for hours when I should have just reprinted the pictures and started over with standard sizes
I didn't make my pictures consistent sizes, but I did make sure they were lined up to half inches, and squared. I think they were 4x4, 3.5x3.5, 3x3 and 2.5x2.5. It was interesting, I ended up needing a 1/4 in strip in the top left hand corner.
