Week 27
created for an Iron Scrapper speed scrap at ScrapOrchard http://scraporchard.com/forum/showthread.php/45536-7-13-MIS-Iron-Scrapper-Edition!-10pm-EST

1. Use a background paper with some sort of texture. Woodgrain, cardboard, folded paper...make me want to touch it
2. Choose 3 other papers and crop them into strips of different sizes. Layer these on top of each other on one side of your layout
3. Choose 1 photo, and put it at a slight angle on top of your papers
4. One trend I've been loving lately is ephemera. You know, elements that are just....stuff! raffle tickets, labels, postcards. Add something like that!
5. Embellish as you like, but everything has to be touching your papers.
6. Add a title, but here's the trick: It can't be anywhere near the rest of your layout!
7. Journal and date, if you want.

Every element is from the July Mega collab http://scraporchard.com/market/July-2012-Mega-Digital-Scrapbook.html
