Stay Cool | Scrap Academy | Summer Camp Hopscotch Challenge

Saturday 8 August 2020


 Hey everyone! Welcome to my latest layout for Scrap Academy. We are having a break from classes over the summer and instead we have Summer Camp! Over the six weeks of summer we are holding six fun challenges.
We are kicking off week 3 today and today's challenge is Hopscotch! This week's challenge is sponsored by Lottie Loves Paper who are a fabulous scrapbooking shop with lots of wonderful products to purchase.
You can see the Hopscotch challenge over on the Scrap Academy Facebook Group but basically print (or draw) the Hopscotch grid, throw a counter then follow the instructions in the box in which your counter lands. My counter landed on box 5 which is to use 75% white space, agggghhh!

But I love a challenge and even though leaving 75% white space isn't my usual style I really enjoyed making this layout - it just goes to show that taking part in a challenge can sometimes push you out of your comfort zone and you never know, you might like it!

I started my layout with a small amount of mixed media and then I added some circle elements using papers from Dear Lizzy Here and Now. I kept my embellishments really small and ensured that everything remained close to my small square photo. I added some Perspextives by Bramble Fox and some sequins by Spiegelmom Scraps. When working small, try to stick to smaller embellishments such as flat stickers and puffy stickers or stickers from Sticker Books as they tend to have small items.

Thanks so much for joining me today and you can play along with the Summer Camp Challenges over on the Scrap Academy Facebook Group, and you can view the Process Video below.
And don't forget to take a look at our fabulous sponsor this week Lottie Loves Paper
Happy scrapping
Niki xx
