In the past, I've always had my photo(s) first, and then selected my materials. Another benefit to my participation in challenges has been the push to look at my scrapbooking with different perspectives.
I've never before worked with a color challenge like the one Life.Paper.Scrapbook puts together monthly. Having kept myself in my comfort zone, I always shied away from them. First, I chose my supplies that matched the palette, and then I needed to decide what to do.
With my recent switch in phone brands, I've discovered I really, really like Instagram. I'd never felt one way or the other about it, but now having tried it out, it's safe to say, I'm hooked. I decided I'd make the layout about the first picture I uploaded.
My Mind's Eye is one of my favorite manufacturers and I enjoy the challenges they put up as well. I used their current sketch challenge and while I adjusted it to my style, think I still hit on most of the components in the sketch.
This layout was definitely a challenge in many ways, all of them good!
