    I love, love PRD templates, was planning on using it someday, but this challenge nudged me to do it now. Used paper as pieces, clipped to paint, clipped to title, background and clipped to element.

    I love that everyone has been explaining exactly what they did with their paper in each of their steps. That way, if someone is inspired by your work, they will know how to replicate it. We learn from each other!

    Here We Go:
    Everything is Just Jaimee Storyteller July 2016 (the frames are from the Storyteller Collab with Sara Gleason) except for the "Fun Folds" overlay which is Scrapping with Liz.
    1- I blended two papers together, a solid and a print for the yellow circles background. (I believe I used colour burn for this.)
    2- I then cut a bunch of shapes out of that new blended paper, and put the green paper in behind.
    3- I used the cookie cutter to crop various circles out of other papers and placed them at the bottom right corner.
    4- I trimmed down the blue polka dot paper and layered my frames on top of that. But, I then used a Scrapping with Liz Fun Folds overlay, blended it using "multiply" at 20%.
    5- I clipped a solid purple paper to my text to make the "Rock Painting" title.

    I wanted to repeat the multi-sized circles in lots of places, and I liked having it spread through 3 layers of the paper. Also, I'm obsessed with designs that move on a diagonal.

    I love patterned paper so this was a perfect challenge for me!

    1. 2 papers blended for the background and also for the blue vertical paper piece (this one used the exclusion blending mode).
    2. Paper clipped to a 'misting' layer on the template.
    3. Papers clipped to various template shapes (triangles, label).
    4. Papers clipped to a rectangle shape to create my own journal card (base for the title).
    5. Papers clipped to both Explore and Our World in the title.
    6. Paper and embellishment clipped to a template shape, duplicated with the top layer having a kraft style by Mommyish applied and opacity lowered to create the 'let the adventure begin' embellishment at the bottom left of the page.

    Summer School is so much fun! This week I was even able to finish a lay out in time for the challenge.


    All the ways I used paper from 'back to front':

    -backgroundpaper with parts erased using eraser brush tool, changed opacity (90%)
    -backgroundpaper with parts cut out using magic wand
    -paperclips extracted from paper by using the magic wand and then cutting away all but the parts that cover the blue/grey by using the magic wand on the paperlayer below (does that make sense?), changed opacity (80%)
    -clipping paper to the ribbons, the pink/orange paper reduced in size to make the pattern smaller and more suitable for the small ribbons
    -reduce paper in size and shift to sides of the lay out so only part of it is visible
    -clipping paper to the photo frames
    -love embellishment: clipped two papers to embellishment; top paper with word 'love' cut out by using magic wand on embellishment & changed opacity (60%)
    -heart embellishment: blending (top paper: overlay/80%) two papers together before clipping them to embellishment
    -clipping papers to the title, happy word with regular sized paper, birthday with enlarged paper to suit the word better
    -using the color picker tool on the second background (partly erasedaway layer to determine the color of the font for 'dear daddy'
