What's Up Wednesday with Jennifer Longenecker

This week we are going to focus on Blocking. Blocking is a form of scrapboooking where the Creator will design their LO around a group of pictures that are in a similar shape. For my LO I chose to use a hexagon shape.

Step 1: Start by cutting out several shapes, some smaller than the others, then lay the shapes out on your page and get an idea of where you want everything to go. This is a good time to mark where you want everything to go.

Step 2: Start placing some embellishments on and around your shapes.

Step 3: Once you have determined the placement of your elements take your pattern paper shapes and add texture with paint, ink, and distressed edges.

Step 4: Now take each shape and adhere it to your LO. Next treat each shape as its own LO and add embellishments. I used a little trim, some chipboard, and some rub-on's. I also added a little doodling on a few pieces.

Step 5: To finish off the LO outline a few of your shapes with some embroidery floss then add your title and journaling and your done.
