AEzine Challenge:Try on Style!


Just had to do this challenge from the most talented Ali Edwards' newsletter. I often find myself looking to others for inspirations, be it the way that they use buttons, the font on their title, down to the color of their patterned paper. Well for this one I decided to go for the whole "random" border look by cutting up different size squares of pp and aligning them all around my 8 1/2 x 11 layout. Well as you can notice the total randomness I was not feeling so I decided to align my squares more and then sew a border right through it. Now this worked for me! I just fell in love with the way it turned out and I am sooo ready to try this sense of style again.

Guess I should tell you where I got the idea...my Elsie idea book...not sure if I can scan pages of it and upload so I will just trust that you understand where I was going with it!!

Thanks to Ali for keeping those ever inspiring ezines flowing in my inbox every week! They are truly exciting and inspiring to read!!!
