Challenge No. 6 - Miscellaneous

:hello: everyone! I am happy to be hosting the Challenge No. 6 Miscellaneous Challenge this month! Diane (Madi) gave me a great idea for this challenge, thanks Diane!! She suggested that I could make this a challenge using journal cards. This is something that is totally out of my comfort zone, so what a perfect way to tackle my fear and get some new ideas for these great journal cards that are in the shop! I would like to see you use at least 3 journal cards on your layout. I hope you have fun joining me in discovering new ways to use JOURNAL CARDS!

Here is my page

And this lovely page from Madi

The Rules:
Make a layout with at least 80% Oscraps products.
Follow the above instructions.
Your page must be placed in the Challenge #6 Miscellaneous gallery by midnight PST August 31st, 2017 and linked back to this thread.
You must also link your page to the monthly challenge thread for challenge credit.

Have fun! I look forward to seeing your pages!

I thought I was just going to have to skip this challenge! Seriously, I do NOT have a clue how to make a page with 4 art journal cards look the way everyone else can make them look. SO! You didn't say the rule was to use them traditionally! So I stacked them, merged them, split them, duplicated them, and applied blend modes. And yes! There really ARE 4 art journal cards bordering this page. And Trudy, if you don't believe me, I'll send you a screen shot of my layers panel! LOL I HAD to figure out a way to earn my 25%-off coupon, and qualify for the gift certificate!

By the way, these two Mountain Men are friends of ours who were out 4-wheelin' in the wilds of Alaska. Greg texted me the photo. What mountain man goes 4-wheelin' without his cell-phone and selfie-stick?

I agree, Sharron, a real challenge for me, too, as I rarely use journal cards! But I loved having the challenge! So, here's mine:

I thought it would make a nice challenge, we do not see that many journal card layouts in our gallery!
I love looking at them!!

Here is mine

WOW! you ladies are really rocking this challenge!! Such awesome pages so far! I am sorry it took so long to get this challenge up and running, but now that it is I am so thrilled with the results! Off to the gallery to leave some :love:

taxed4ever 08-06-2017 08:34 AM

LOL Sharron... I totally understand!! I never think to use journal cards on my pages, but so happy I now have a pretty good idea how to use them in one way at least! Your page is awesome and I love your take on this challenge! No screen shot of your layers is necessary :becky:

taxed4ever 08-06-2017 08:46 AM

You can find my page here

taxed4ever 08-06-2017 08:48 AM

Great Challlenge!!! Credits in Gallery

Trudy and Diane, this is a tough challenge for me! I rarely use journal cards in a LO. When I do, they are usually just tucked behind a photo, not as a main element on my page. I am working on this now and am not sure how I feel about it hehe!

faerywings 08-10-2017 01:54 PM

I did it! Thx T!

taxed4ever 08-10-2017 05:37 PM

You ladies are blowing me away with your awesome pages!! Interesting to see how everyone uses journal cards in so many different ways!

Helene... what a fabulous way to use the journal cards!! love how you have layered them that way!

Got a little carried away using 3 journal cards and 3 other type cards.

Good challenge! Thanks Diane and Taxed forever!

I have been away from here for a few days, but what a lovely surprise to find so many more gorgeous layouts! Off to the gallery!! :bolt:

ouisiekelly 08-23-2017 05:43 PM

I don't think I've ever used journaling cards, so I found it difficult. Anyhow, this is my craft room and Happy Place. Thought it was a good page to share.

I have been collecting Journal cards for at least 2 years now, in preparation to try digital pocket scrapping... have not done that yet!

elwaechter 08-27-2017 04:52 PM

I generally don't use the journal/pocket cards so it was fun to try different things out. Nothing as amazing as some of you have done, but I like it.

taxed4ever 08-28-2017 01:10 PM

More gorgeous pages and creative use of Journal Cards thanks for playing along ladies!!

felis 08-29-2017 06:12 AM

Because of security reasons I can't (unfortunately) add photos or info, but I am so proud of my son.

easyeyes4you 08-31-2017 12:28 AM

That was actually fun... Had the prefect page waiting to be finished, and the cards worked so well! Very Happy!
