February 2019 Washi Challenge - Winner

Post by mgehrke » Fri Feb 08, 2019 8:09 pm

Thank you to all the Cherries who got there Washi out and let it run wild. According to Random.org #6 Retiree3 is the winner. I'll get your gc to you shortly.

It's WASHI MANIA and the Washi is running wild.

That's right - the Washi sort of got out of hand (not really). While I was looking for inspiration for another challenge, I came across a page that caught my eye. Of course it had Washi all over it. I looked at it and thought "WHY NOT - let's do this for a challenge. 

This round I would like to see how much different Washi you can get on your page (I only used 20 different Washi). BUT......there's a catch (or Twist)…..You may NOT use any embellishments on your page and you can only mat your photo once. Of course you can use alphas for your title. So let the Washi run wild...……..

Since I am posting late and February is a short month, I will have this challenge go through the end of March.

Here's the page that I found and was my inspiration.

And here's my page I did.

Image
Rules (because we have to have them):
  1. Must only use Washi.
  2. May mat your photo 1 time.
  3. Alphas are only for your title.
  4. NO EMBELLISHMENTS!!!!
  5. Limit of 3 entries.
  6. Must be completed by March 31, 2018 at midnight CST.
  7. No combining with other challenges. Let's get that Washi out and let it be the star  Image

this will be tricky as I don't have that much washi. 

I have 2 questions:
Can we die-cut the washi to make embellishments?
Can we use more than one photo?

Yes you may use more than one photo, but no embellishments even if they are made of Washi. The challenge is to use as much Washi as possible.

I 'only' used 20 different washi, she said! LOL.....
This is fabulous! I really like the monochromatic look on your layout. I know I don't have 20 of one color, for sure. But I likely have 220 rolls of washi!! Will enjoy this one!

Kathy you are so funny - 20 different Washi does not even "TOUCH" the stash I have. Last count I was over 800 rolls and I have bought more since. I'm afraid to count them anymore  :?
