"A Little Bit of Clustering" 

Part 1: The Card Challenge for December 2011 is for you to create a little bit of clustering on your card...that you put together yourself....not already created. That means, whether you do this challenge digitally or via paper, YOU are the one creating your own cluster.

Part 2: Make this a season appropriate card for where YOU live. Here in the US - in the midwest - we are starting our Winter season in December. Soon enough (and I can wait) we will be experiencing that "lovely" white stuff. What is it like where you live?

My clustering was grouping a bunch of the snowflakes on top of each other to form a corner grouping....and then hung the mittens underneath make a corner cluster. And, to make it season appropriate....this is a winter card by using the snowflakes, mittens, and snowman!
and the digital image.....what I produced digitally to make the card:

Trends and Techniques Challenge by Megamay (Meg)

(paper, digital, or hybrid challenge)

This month I have a trend and a technique in one! I challenge you to use fabric on your layout. There are lots of options for this. You can dig up some fabric scraps and use them just like patterned paper. Or you can cut them into shapes and make custom embellishmnets. Or, you can use some pre-made fabric embellishments like Pink Paislee's mistables. 'Ribbon' made from fabric, like my example, is ok. But regular ribbon - like grosgrain or sheer, or wired - does not count for this challenge.

On this page, I used some plain muslin and hand cut it into scallops, then stamped and inked it.

You can view all of the fantastic challenges by checking out the December Challenges post in the Resource Center!
