HEY! NEW Store, NEW Artful Scrapping Challenge!!!

I am hosting our first Artful Scrapping Outside the Box challenge here at G.D.S.!
If you have never created an art journal page,
an Artist Trading Card, an altered book, or made a hybrid project,
then THIS challenge is for YOU! If you are skilled at those things, this challenge is ALSO for YOU!
We will have some step by steps for beginners,
and the experienced scrap artists can chime in with hints and helps.
Our first challenge is posted in the forum HERE

Hints: To make your page more "art journal-ly",
often you will see hand drawn/painted accents and backgrounds mixed with photographic ads,
images and ephemera. And note in the inspiration thread "journaling" can be done all over the page,
ANYWHERE- not just in a "journal spot".

{Ephemera is things people collect such as old postcards, posters, and bus tickets,
which were only intended to last a short time when they were produced- normally items
from "real life" such as tickets, reciepts, postcards, photos, etc. }

I have a sampler for you if you would like to use it. It has one paper with the page accents shown.

There is a coupon for the sampler in the challenge thread here.
A Randomly generated entry will be chosen at the end of the month to receive ONE of my art journaling kits for FREE.
