The First Ever 'More Than Words' Reveal!

Hello! Welcome to the New Year and our new challenge blog! I'm so excited - it seems like we've been waiting for this day forever.

In case you haven't heard about More Than Words yet, you can pop over HERE for a look. We are six members from the recently finished Scrap Around The World team who wanted to carry on the tradition of providing a fabulous, inspirational, world-wide challenge site.

We hope you like what we've created!

Here's my layout for the first challenge:



Our very first challenge is to use to be influenced by the word "Personality" and to use a Selfie in your project. Here's the stunning Challenge Board:


I found the hardest part of this challenge was to take a selfie. I'm hopeless at them! Anyway, I took heaps and finally got one that I was half happy with. I believe it's important to get ourselves in front of the camera sometimes. I have hundreds of photos of special events where there is no record of me even being there as I was always behind the camera!

As this page is about me, I used my favourite scrappy things - teal colours, white cardstock, Tinby Designs Metallic Melts and Dusty Attic chippies. I also added extra words cos I'm a word type of girl!

I painted my Dusty Attic feather with a white paint pen - this is great for colouring it while still keeping the fine details intact. I coloured the beads with paint then added Clear Gloss Varnish on top for a more dimensional look. I created a loopy line across the page with Lindy's Stamp Gang Magicals then looped a piece of wire above it.



I love the look of Metallic Melts on chippies.



My title came about by seeing so many people fail to be happy with life because they don't plan to achieve whatever it is they want. I believe a satisfying life doesn't just happen, we have to make it happen. 



I really hope you can join in our very first challenge! You can find it HERE.

Happy scrappin'!
