Club Scrap Team Challenge

Hi there folks, today I would like to share a layout I did using Club Scrap Quad papers. What are Quad papers you may ask. These are sheets of 8 1/2 x11 papers that have four different patterns on them. They are great for when you need a smaller sheet of paper or you can use them as I did below.


But first let me share with you a sketch that you can use with the Quad papers.


And here is my layout.  You can use smaller pictures like I did or one large picture in each quad, it is really up to you how you decide to create the layout.



How I made the background paper was by taking the green paper from this months kit. Then in a small spray bottle I mixed acrylic paint and water. I thinned it out pretty much because I didn't want the background to be much darker than the paper. Then I took the to leaf stencils from Club Scrap and overlapped them a bit and sprayed, and worked my way around the paper.


This is how it looked when done. Pretty cool huh? Don't worry about it being perfect, it's so suppose to look random! Then following my sketch above I laid the quad papers and added the rest of the elements.



Products Used:
Twin Tags Masking Stencil - Small Branch
Other products: white cardstock, green cardstocks, wood letters from Michaels, Camping buttons, SEI Catalina Wood Chips.

Thanks for stopping by

Correction: Great ideas and layouts! However, I think the measurements for the quad prints are 8.5x11 inches, not 12x12 (in your introduction). Again, thank you for the lovely layouts! Linda
