Hello, all! I am so happy to announce that the Punky Scraps Challenge Blog is back! Everyone had a nice, and some a well-deserved, vacation. Now, most of us are back to continue with the fun! I have collected a few of my layouts with some of my favorite techniques on them to share with you.

Baby Mine Layout. In this layout, the technique I used was masking. I used opaque white ink to ink over a clock mask to give the page a dreamy look. I love masks because they can be so versatile and can be of great use when wanting to add layering.

Eva Layout. In this layout, the favorite technique is misting. I used misting on the fans to change them into colors that I found more appealling. I use mists to change the colors of papers, flowers, ribbons, and other embellishments to get a better match.

Hatter Layout. Here I used glazing to make everything a predominant red. The page was for a monochromatic challenge and I really wanted to make sure that everything that was red was the same color. I used Tattered Angels Glimmer Glam in Be Positive here.

Pa Layout. Probably my all-time favorite technique in scrapping is making flourishes with Liquid Pearls. I use Liquid Pearls and craft plastic to make my own flourishes to match my layouts. If you see my work often, you'll see that I use them a lot.
