LM #479 - New Technique, Tool, or Product

Hello, everyone! Welcome back to Lasting Memories - we are so happy you are here today! I hope that our Anything Goes challenge from last week has gotten you back into scrapping mode! Today we are sharing our first challenge for January following our theme for the month.

Our theme for January is 'Out of Your Comfort Zone' and this month we want to challenge you to create layouts you may usually pass over as it may not be within your normal comfort zone.

 LM #479 - Use a new technique, tool or product.
* This is the perfect opportunity to pull out all of those "to do one-day" inspiration screenshots we all have saved on the phone, computer or magazine. I tend to see something I really want to try, but easily get intimidated or too lazy to learn how to use that very expensive new tool/product I just bought, so it sits there unopened for years. Now is the time!

Here's a look at the design team creations, starting with our guest designer, Mandy:

January GDT - Mandy
For my new technique, I tried drawing an entire background page with marker. I had never drawn on my pages before...

And the beautiful creations from the design team:

 This is a brand new kit I received from Fancy Pants Designs Called Joy Parade and I used it to create this mini album full of layout for my son's gf's birthday.

I used my new Martha Stewart 'Eyelet Lace' Border Punch that I got last month along with a wonderful sketch by Brenshevia that I found at Pinterest. Sketch will be posted on my blog.

I used my new 3-D-embossing Folder and tried a new technique: acrylic paint on black paper….

Aren't these layouts fantastic? I love each one of them. Now it's your turn -  link up your layouts below by Saturday, February 1st at 6:00 PM EST for your chance to be our guest designer for an upcoming month and for a chance at our monthly prize - a $15 gift certificate to an online store of choice. I hope you are inspired to play along with us this month!

Thanks so much for stopping by and hope you find time to create with us this week!
