This month's palette is one of my favorite combinations: pastel colors! Making an entire paper lamp project inspired me to start the new year full of light. Keeping my romantic style, I used lace and stones. ~ Gaby Edel, Educator

Let's start off the new year with a brand-new sketch by Riikka! We all take so many photos, but do we ever get them off our camera, or phones, and onto paper? Won't you join us this year in committing to doing the BAP challenge each month? That means you will have at least twelve beautiful layouts in the end. It's a win-win all around! Need a little kick to get you going? We have our wonderful Educators and Design team here with a few samples.
“I loved this sketch proposed by Rikka because it was possible to use a photo of my niece Alice (which was perfect with the colors and the proposal.) I also embroidered on paper...something I just love to do. When I started scrapbook I used this feature a lot and now I am reminded of those good times.“ – Luciana Warnowski, Educator

I wanted to create a fun and bright layout for this picture of our puppy running on the grass. I used the oil pastels to create the water-colour ombre background on the 12x12 water-colour paper pad. I then used embellishments and flowers to mat the photo. The background makes it look as if our dog is running on actual grass!! ~ Keren Tamir, Educator
