One-hour challenge: Use tulle on a layout

Using fabric on scrapbook layouts is an elegant trend. Alongside pretty prints, there are more textural fabrics like lace, netting, tulle, etc. Named after a French city, Tulle is lightweight, delicate netting available in various different colors. While it is mostly used in making veils, wedding gowns, ballet tutus, tulle can be used in layout scrapbook layouts of any theme. Tulle can be hand cut or bunched up and stitched to create flowers, it can be used as ribbon, pleated to create borders, etc.

In my layout "Princess", I simply folded a 12 inch length of pink tulle several times to create a border. The overlapping of the folds made the light color of the tulle more prominent. I attached it to my page with simple hand-stitching. You can even staple it on to finish faster or for a more masculine look.

Winter Glow by Irma Peredne from the January 2011 issue issue of Creating Keepsakes magazine.

In her layout,  Irma Peredne showed another quick and easy way of using tulle on your layout. She used die cut flowers as her guide for cutting flowers out of tulle.

Our teen talent contest winner, Jordan Hebl, also had some great ideas for using tulle to make beautiful flowers.

 

In the next 60 minutes, complete a layout incorporating tulle or something texture.  By participating, you'll use up your stash, complete a project, or even have the chance to win a paper stack, mat stack, and pop-up embellishments from the Colorful Life Collection by Die Cuts with a View, and also some scrapper's spools from Karen Foster Designs.

You have 60 minutes to complete the project. At the end of the 60 minutes, photograph or scan your project, and upload the image to the Club CK gallery (learn how to upload your project here). Then leave a comment below with the URL link to your page by 11:15 a.m. MST today. For example, your comment could look like this: "My page is posted here: http://clubcreatingkeepsakes.com/media/p/31086.aspx." One winner will be randomly selected who participates in the live challenge.

Note: If you're new to Club CK, you'll need to create a free account here in order to be able to upload your project. I suggest registering now so your account will be active by the time you complete your project.

If you can't join us for the live challenge, you can still enter to win! The second prize will be awarded to one randomly selected person who leaves the URL link to his or her page in the comments section below by 9:00 a.m MST, Monday, February 7, 2011.

I have mine begun, but it is taking more time than I anticipated, so I will just upload it later for the Monday 9AM deadline. Working with tulle can be a bit of a challenge, but I love it.  Off to look at all of your beautiful creations.

When you post your link to your LO, remember that you are more than likely not going to see your comment for several minutes. Usually no need to repost as it will be there in a few minutes. But I can understand the anxiety if you're right at the deadline. Wanting to make sure yours is posted in time. Been there; done that.

This started out to have tulle on it, but in the end I was unhappy with the way the tulle flowers looked. Only had cream in tulle and I needed some red. So I wound up replacing them with the flower I made fdrom the cs.  It does have lace for texture anyway. Here's the link. clubcreatingkeepsakes.com/.../486953.aspx
