Team member Ronnie Crowley will be sharing ideas and inspiration from our team for the reader challenge each month.
This month’s Simple Scrapper challenge:
Use a map, paper or scanned, or a map-themed paper in a new layout.
The map can be a scan of a map, an actual map, a picture of a map, or a piece of map scrapbooking paper. If its a map you can use it to complete this challenge.
The Simple Scrapper Team created layouts as inspiration for the challenge:
Jean Watson Manis was on a roll this month and the challenge inspired her to create three layouts – in the end this one was her favorite. (credits) Check out her gallery at two peas to see the rest of her layouts.
For my map layout I found a map of the area of Florence we visited on the internet. I downloaded the map as jpeg which I then brought into photoshop and blended with a background paper to give it an antique look and to make the colors work with the pictures I was using. (credits)
Valerie Mangan die cut circles from a road map of New Jersey, focusing on locations significant to her. She also replaced one of the photos spaces on the sketch with the longitude & latitude coordinates for her hometown in NJ. (credits)
Sue Althouse used the Map Theme on this page in two ways: A Map patterned paper from Studio Calico and Crate Paper peeks out subtly in the background. and a piece of the map from our travel brochure is used as a banner embellishment. I really like how she created her title block and the variety of fonts in this small area (credits)
