September Use Everything Challenge


Senior Member
Welcome to this month's Use Everything Challenge.
I have put together a mini kit for you to all play with.

The rules..... you must use everything that is in the kit. You must not add anything. You can slice, cut, rearrange elements, use shapes to clip the papers to. You can duplicate things. But no added brush work but the mask and painted leaf elements could be turned into brushes if you desired to do that.
Now of course you can re-color anything in the kit.
A hint for lightening the dark paper - change it to grayscale or black and white first, then play with levels to lighten it before recoloring. With doing it this way it keeps the texture looking okay.

Here is the preview of the kit:

Now you will need to pop over HERE to be able to download this kit to take part in the challenge.

Once you complete your layout, share it in our monthly challenge gallery HERE

This is my page created using the mini kit:

Such a dramatic, very pretty mini-kit. Thanks Anne-Marie. I used your suggestion and made a brush and used it on the purple background.

This is a beautiful mini kit. Thank you Anne-Marie for sharing it with us. I will be out of pocket for a couple of days but I will get my layout done as soon as I get back.
