Merly Impressions Challenge - September 2012

Today is the 15th of the month and as such it is the challenge reveal day!
I often see on your blogs that you are enjoying the variety of themes for our challenge at Merly and I am very pleased that you do so! I do my best to come-up with something different every month to keep you on your toes! I try to vary things by rotating theme challenge, technique challenge and design challenge. This month, I thought I would go for a theme a bit different from your usual Scrapbooking challenge... You see, after Scrapbooking and crafting, what I love the most is my television! I have been thinking for a while about creating a TV layout and as choosing what I will challenge you with is one of the perks of this job (hi hi hi) I decided to  challenge you too to design a Television themed layout!!!!

It can be about your favourite TV series, your guilty pleasure, the object itself, memories related to the TV,... You decide!

Here is my layout:


I loooove Grey's Anatomy! I only got into it last year (season 8!) but I caught up all the previous seasons and now I even Scrapbook while playing the episodes over and over on my desktop!!! I layered different collections of papers: Hummingbird (one of my favourite Kaisercraft collection ever!), Madame Boutique (for the brown), Miss Nelly ( for the pale blue) and a bit from the Twig and Berry paper pad (for the rich red straight under the photo). I have also added some acetate between the sheets of paper that I melted with my heatgun using this technique and mounted it all onto a sheet of Burgundy  Kaisercard. I finished it off with some Distress Stains splodges and the gorgeous Typewriter alphas.

I hope this inspired you and that I will see you take part over on the Merly Impressions blog!

What an awesome challenge!! How unique to use your favorite TV show!!! Your techniques are amazing as usual... I am in love with how you use the acetate which I am going to do!!! I have to wonder if the underlined letters are the alpha letters you are talking about ..I have seen them on other layouts with different words and wondered how you do that! I just went out and bought a typewriter at a yardsale that was worth 270 dollars only used 3 times and I got it for $20.00!!!! I did this hoping to acheive some of the things you do...you have to know by now you are my ultimate inspiration!!!! Love this layout!! the splodges are wonderful!!!
