Thread: September 2011 Technnique Challenge - Photoless

  1. September 2011 Technnique Challenge - Photoless

    In experimenting with the different types of layouts out there, I found the photoless layout to be liberating on many levels. There are often memories that we have that we'd like to document that don't have accompanying photos. Sometimes it's nice to just play with an expression of ourselves at that moment in time, and use graphics instead of actual photos.

    So your challenge this month is to create a photoless layout. To aid you in this process, I have created a template loosely based on a layout below by our very own Lisa of Kuper Doodles. Preview is linked.

    ***Anyone may download this template - it is NOT required to be used for this challenge. Any photoless layout will qualify.
    ***There is no posting bonus for this challenge since the template is being provided up front.
    ***Layouts unique to this challenge will qualify as one entry for the Scrappin' 7 Challenge
    ***GDS products are highly encouraged but not mandatory.

    There are some photoless templates out there in cyberland but remember that any template can be modified to be a photoless layout if you have something you want to record but no appropriate photo. Here is an example:

    Dawn of Simply You, Simply Me has lots of templates in her store and this is one I chose to convert to a photoless layout. Here is the result using her kit, Stolen Moments. Dawn's store with this template can be found here.

    It is my hope that you are inspired and enjoy the liberation that a photoless layout can provide.

    And here is some more inspiration from the gallery to get you rolling!

    I don't know about you, but with all those wonderful layouts, I'm feeling truly inspired!!
