Master Forger's Gallery Standout Challenge

Guest Designer: Helen
I loved this challenge - after all it involved spending time mooching around on the internet looking for inspiration, something I might just possibly enjoy doing! Being a UK girl I ended up choosing UKScrappers and the wk12 ScrapFactor contest in particular. The talented Jimjams was a great contestant in ScrapFactor and you can see her take on this challenge here - Jim Jams

The challenge was called 1-2-3 - 1 black card stock as a background, 2 photos and 3 patterned papers. One of the contestants (Sutty) had used strawberries on her LO and I'd put fabric strawberries in my kit and had black card stock in my add on kit, so it seemed a good fit. Here's Sutty's layout -UK Scrappers

I managed to follow the challenge except I chose to use 1 photo. I used the fabric flowers and fruit, some of the homemade banners, and ribbon and trims from my kit - in fact everything is from the kit! I'm really pleased with how it turned out - I'd never have used black as a background without this for inspiration, but I will definitely use this technique again.
