In The Scrap DT| June Challenge: Scrap-Lift Steffi Reid

I am back today, friends, to share the June challenge that is live on the In The Scrap blog!

This month was a really thoughtful and unique challenge as it focused on one specific scrapper and taking her unique designs to scrap lift them. Here is the challenge this month::

It’s such an awesome challenge not only because we are showing love to this specific scrapbooker, but she also has such amazing designs every. Single. Time.

So, I chose one of her layouts that inspired me the most and scraplifted it. Here is my take on this challenge:

The layout that I scraplifted was a full sized image with gorgeous stitching and bits if embellishments scattered around so magically on the page. I couldn’t step away from this one.

So, I decided to pick out a photograph that would best match up and chose one of a photograph I took not too long ago of a precious blooming tree full of purple flowers. Here is that original image:

So, I printed it out on a full sized 8 1/2 x 11 sheet of photo paper ( I could have totally printed this out on card stock, too!) and got to stitching and decorating it to end up with this:

I feel like I really like this awesome technique of embellishing straight onto a photograph, although I didn’t have a human as my subject.

But, I still kept to the aesthetic and added stitching, tiny floral embellishments, and one circle element.

I basically added a bit of 3D pop to this amazing tree that brightened up my day through its beauty.

Here are some extra closeups to take in all the itty bitty elements I added to my photograph:

The supplies I used were a small mix of cut out flowers from the Simple Stories I AM collection. The stickers I used were from the Pebbles Patio Party collection. Both are springy and beautiful!

So, friends, will you take on this month’s challenge?
