Challenge Host - May

Happy New Year to you all. This will be the 1[SUP]st[/SUP] Progressive Scrap of 2019 and my 1[SUP]st[/SUP] as host.
I will post 5 steps - one every other day (January 13[SUP]th[/SUP], 15[SUP]th[/SUP], 17[SUP]th[/SUP], 19[SUP]th[/SUP], 21[SUP]st[/SUP])

Add only what the instructions say each day and nothing extra, you can add shadows at anytime.

Claim a spot in this thread and post all your pages in that one spot.

Post your pages marked (PS Day 1, PS Day 2 etc.), in the Progressive Challenge gallery after you have completed each step, then come back to this thread and post your pages.

DAY 1.

Add a background paper of your choice. Then on another layer I would like you to choose a fairly plain paper and place at an angle on about a third of your page. Do this again elsewhere but covering a slightly larger part of your page and have it overlapping the other at some point and with a gap between them.
Have added an example page ... but where you place your papers is your choice.

Example :

DAY 2.

Well you all used some very lovely papers and now it’s time to add a little bit of decoration to them.

Add a line, stitching, embossed pattern etc , just along the edges.

Next lets add your image. Just blend or mask your chosen image to the larger of the angled papers but do not frame it.

Example page.

DAY 3.

Now we need to connect our angled papers where they join. Use at least three items to do this.

Next lets add interest to the gap we have created. You can add anything of your choosing but
make it look like it is going under one of the papers and just over the edge of the other.

Example page.

DAY 4.

Let’s make part of the image stand out a bit more. Add a frame, lines, swirls ... whatever takes your fancy.

Also I would like you to add an embellishment ,stamp , or cluster to the bottom of the same paper with the image on.

If you want to tweak or slightly move anything then this is the time to do it.

Example page.

DAY 5.

Easy peasy, just add a quote, saying, journaling etc to the other paper you have not used yet.

If you want you can add a topper to your paper for the wordart to go on.

Example page.
