I am offering you a scavenger hunt where you have to find some elements and combine them to create a layout or a project. Are you up to the challenge? Although you don’t have to create those elements, you also have that option, so either you use what you have downloaded or you can still make them from scratch. Your end result must include ALL of those elements ;). I added some links to tutorials (only accessible to our DIAMOND members) but you can also use elements created from scripts.
- paper with text as pattern (here, here, here)
- strung elements
- something fuzzy like fibers or felt (here)
- a wired element (here, here)
- at least one bow
- a brad
You can choose any theme you want, so what will you create with those elements?July 19, 2020 at 5:39 pm #45131cindy harrisParticipant

Hi fuzzy fiber 4 I made it. I don’t know how to make a bow, so this is bow tube. decided it was to plain so put a nice picture behind the background I made. Thank you
I dont know how to circle the hunt things so had to just put dots around them.July 20, 2020 at 11:51 am #45236Sue ThomasParticipant
A thunder storm made me sit down to create something for the July scavenger hunt. Here it is. I used the alpha bead script on the oh deer. the rest I created myself. I extracted a sunflower from a photo to add to two beads. I used the soft light blend mode on the letters and flower on those green beads I created. The yellow flowers in the deer photos are sunflowers. I used a colour from the deer for the fuzzy paper. Text overlay on a sunflower photo. Rope tube. Background paper, coloured stripes with a blur. Polaroid frame created for the photos. Paper clip and bow are my own too, which are from my own supplies, all I had to do was colourize the bow to match the project using adjust HSL. I think that covers everything.July 21, 2020 at 10:52 pm #45304CasselKeymaster
Now Cindy, not only you have to FIND those elements, but you have to USE them now. Can you?July 23, 2020 at 10:33 am #45392Lynda DiGregorParticipant
Scavenger Hunt Probably doesn’t make much sense but poppy is one of the August flowers, the bow was made with Carol’s bow script and her instructions on how to make felt, green is the August color and August 1st is my birthday and August 27th is my oldest son’s birthday who would have been turning 38 this year.July 23, 2020 at 4:18 pm #45398Corrie KinkelParticipant
This is the result of my scavenger hunt. At first I had no idea how connect all the requested elements but something came to mind. Then it was really a “hunt” to find all of those elements. The photos are mine and some of the elements I had in my stock, some are freebees from Carole (thank you for your generosity) and some I downloaded from Pixelscrapper. So everything is there!July 23, 2020 at 6:15 pm #45418Lynda DiGregorParticipant
Nice job , beautiful photographyJuly 26, 2020 at 6:02 am #45586
Lovely layouts, Sue, Lynda, and Corrie. Each one is unique and very creative.July 26, 2020 at 6:20 am #45588
I struggled with this challenge for days; whatever I was doing was not pleasing me. To have so many items in one layout is something that I am not used to, and that’s why it is good for me to participate in it.
But in the end, I came up with something…
Cassel: NaturalRope2 Tube, BowScript15, and followed her Pinned paper tutorial.
I used a regular shadow for the bow, but I am not sure if I should have done it differently. Bows and Shadows are something I need to improve.
Fonts: Bauhaus93 and Emily Regular
Now I want to try the Cluster Challenge, something I like to see in other projects but doesn’t come naturally to me.July 26, 2020 at 12:51 pm #45595sandra jonesParticipant
This was definitely a challenge. I used a freebie kit by Antebellum press called “Bohemian Sunshine”. I also used a couple elements from Angel Scraps kit called “A Mother’s Love”. I changed the color on some of the elements. I made the felt, the paper clip and the word frame. The picture is of my daughter who just turned 33. I had problems again with my shadows and what layers my elements need to be in realistically- like the paint shouldn’t be on top of some papers but under others but I think I figured it out.
Lynda: Happy Birthday! My grandson’s birthday is on the same day.
To every one else: Great job on the hunt! The layouts are awesome.July 26, 2020 at 7:22 pm #45602AprilDawnParticipant
Well done to you all on your projects for this challenge.
Lynda Happy Birthday for the 1st August…. it will be here before you know it.
Cristina even though you may have struggled with this challenge you achieved a lovely result. I like your choice of fonts and the creative background caught my eye and fits so well in the layout.
best wishes to you all,
Dawn.July 27, 2020 at 7:33 am #45611
Dawn, thank you! <3
I started with a white wood pattern background, which in the end, I used it as the photos mats. But I did not like the text overlay on it, and that was what slowing me down. After many trials and errors, I finally found something that I liked: darker wood pattern background paper and low opacity text overlay.
Now, next challenge, cluster 🙂July 27, 2020 at 7:36 am #45612
Sandra, nice layout. I love the idea of using the text overlay as a photo mat… I will remember that for the next challenge. 🙂
