Layer Cake Challenge!

Instead of a sketch this month, I thought I’d mix things up a little bit and give you a page map in a different format. So, in honor of Tea and Cupcakes, let’s build a layer cake! All you have to do to play along is build a layout using the following layers as a guideline. I’m really excited to see how differently they will turn out.

Layer 1: Mist your page! (My sample uses Glimmer Mist in Pearl, so it’s very subtle.)

Layer 2: Add some paint to your layout, either spattered or with a brush. It’s up to you!

Layer 3: Glue down a little sparkle. (On mine, I spread on some Mod Podge then sprinkled glitter. I also glued on a few sequins.)

Layer 4: Some patterned paper.

Layer 5: A sticker on top of the paper.

Layer 6: A photo or 2 (or 3).

Layer 7: Add a bit of ribbon.

Layer 8: Stitches, either by machine or by hand.

Layer 9: A little stamping. (Mine’s the date).

Layer 10: And a title. (I used the really tiny alpha from January’s kit for mine.)

Here’s the layout I built with this recipe.

You have until January 9th to participate in the challenge. Just make a layout, upload a picture to the gallery, and link to this post in the comments so I’ll know you completed it. A winner will be announced shortly after the 9th and will receive a $10 voucher to the store. You do NOT need to use a Cocoa Daisy kit to participate in this challenge. Have fun! I can’t wait to see your creations!
