Here is the third and final challenge I did during the 2Peas Winter CHA Social: use 8 great things. During 2Peas online socials last year for NSD and CHA I managed to get all 10 challenges done for each event, but I just wasn't feelin' it this year. I am kinda disappointed I didn't meet my goal of getting all ten done, but I did make three fun pages that I may not have done without the challenge prompts.
This one at first had me all confused. I kept trying to make lists of eight things and making piles and really, just overthinking the whole thing. Once I realized that I tend to use a lot of different textures and weights and finishes on a page, it was easier to do. I just added and played with things until I had 8 different types of items on my page.
My eight great pieces were: washi tape, vintage book page, metallic gold confetti, glassine envelop, glitter tape, paper clip, stitching, and label tape.
When I add confetti to a page, I often just toss it on or sprinkle it down, and then adhere it piece by piece. Sometimes if the confetti covers a large area like in some spots above, I will lift the confetti and put down a small area of adhesive and then add the confetti back on top.
The title, still has it, was inspired by a sudden memory I had when looking at these pictures of Summer Lily on her 11th birthday, of a layout I did years ago, with photos of her when she was about 2. Looking at those photos of 2 year old SL was the first time I realized how much she has her dad's smile, and then looking at these photos, that she still has it!
I made these flying chevrons by trimming chevrons out of chevron patterned paper, then creasing slightly down the middle. I adhered them with a small dot of liquid glue on the crease. Once the glue was dry I stitched a row down the centre of each column of flying chevron pieces.
