Monday Makeover: Makeover Your Style!

For my final Makeover Monday challenge of March, I have challenged my fellow GISistas--as I hear they are now being called ;)-- to Makeover their scrapbooking style!  Now the objective of this challenge is not replace your own FABULOUS style with another, but to practice accentuating it!  And here are few ideas how to go about it! 

To illustrate the style differences in the los below, I have chosen to work with the same background paper, by Die Cut With a View, and the same inspirational sketch, Sketch #39 by Debbie Hodge.

#1. TRY INCORPORATING A STYLE TOTALLY DIFFERENT FROM YOUR OWN

Inspired by "Making an Art Journalish Layout" by Dina Wakley

There are so many great styles out there to choose from, try channeling a different style and chances are you'll come up with an awesome hybrid of of the two styles!

#2. USE A PRODUCT OR SUPPLY IN A NEW AND CREATIVE WAY

Inspired by "Designer Project by Paula" by Paula Gilarde
and "Embellishing with Alphas" by Debbie Hodge

Whether it be using a doily as a frame, or an alpha as an embellishment, or even your digital supplies on your paper los, every supply has multiple uses, so get creative and see the difference it makes!

#3. TRY OUT A NEW TECHNIQUE

Inspired by techniques learned in Oodles of Doodles with
Michelle Houghton and Scrapbooking with Fabric with Tania Willis

Fun techniques can really give your style a boost, so pick a technique you'd like to learn and take a class or find an online tutorial!  I think you'll like the process of learning something new and the effect new techniques will have on your current style!

Thanks for joining me this month for the Get It Scrapped Blog Challenge and my Monday Makeovers...I have enjoyed reading all of your blogs and being inspired by your creativity!

Wish I could view the images with this article . . . it kind of loses something without them.
