    Welcome to this month's technique challenge.

    I love Nicole's artsy papers! This month we're going to create an artsy paper and then use it in a layout.
    Here's what you need to include:

    1. A solid paper, reasonably plain.
    2. Texture - gesso, thick paint, or other textured element
    3. Colour - magic lights, styles, colored papers clipped to masks etc
    4. A stitch or scribble/loopilalooza/artstroke
    5. Script or text - brushes, elements, styles etc
    6. Your design should cover approximately half of the solid paper
    7. Then go ahead and create a layout using the paper you made.
    8. When you have finished, post both the created paper and your layout here.
    Here is my paper and the elements I used, from NBK Design's Wildflowers, which will be released this Wednesday. I also used text from the Artsy Bits & Pieces in artCrush 11.

    Here is my paper

    And here is the layout with the paper I created.

    Cindy and Danesa also did example layouts. Here are Cindy's paper and layout...using Wildflowers (in store on Wednesday)

    This challenge runs from 3rd - 16th of June.

    You may use a template from a designer at The Lily Pad if it fits in with the challenge.
