Heritage Challenge


Welcome! So glad you decided to play!!! The Heritage Challenge is one where we can explore techniques, use older picture to catalog our heritage. This month I decided to do something that isn’t really very hard to do but I think we forget about it or think it looks hard so we don’t use it. That is the Folded Paper.

So here is the challenge if you are up to it: Created a Heritage page (meaning using an older vintage photo of your choice) but you must include TWO folds in your layout!

Here are some examples of folds:



Here is a great tutorial by Megan Turnidge (http://www.designsbymeganturnidge.com/blog/?p=123)of how to fold. (You are free to use another tutorial if you have one, I am more focused on the finished products not really how you got there!)

Everyone gets a bonus for participating!! Yup that’s FREE stuff!!!

Have fun and good luck!!

Additional info:

(1) Your layout can only be used for this challenge.
(2) Your layout also counts as one entry towards the
August 2012 Scrappin' 7 Challenge.
(3) Use of GDS products is strongly encouraged and greatly appreciated.
(4) Please post your layout in the Heritage Challenge Gallery (http://www.godigitalscrapbooking.com/photopost/showgallery.php?cat=1094)
(5) Come back here and post what you created, and link it to the gallery, so we can all leave you some love!

This challenge runs through August 31, 2012

I can't wait to see your creations!!!

I haven't used folded papers for awhile, so thanks for reminding me. I might have went a bit wild doing it though.

This is a photo of my mother's mother taken just after WWII ended.
I did have to do a bit of repair work to the photo as it had been stored in my mom's box of photos for several years. I am slowly working my way through them and scanning them into the computer so my children and their's can have photos of their ancestors.
