Challenge 61: Ruffles !!!!

Jen here, posting with today's challenge!...

I don't consider myself much of a girly-girl, especially when it comes to clothing. However, I just knitted a scarf that has a ruffle down the length and I LOVE it! It got me thinking how great a little ruffle can be to spiff up a layout, as well as a piece of clothing.

So here is your challenge.... add a RUFFLE TO YOUR LAYOUT. Use paper, use fabric. Whatever you want.

As always, you have 2 weeks to link us up for a chance to be considered for a RAK from me.

Here is what the team has for you:

Paloma: Ruffles! How do you put ruffles on a « manly » layout? Because DH had picked this one and he even wrote the journaling... What’s a girl to do?! I had no choice but to play the game and look for a way to include ruffles in the layout! And here it is : the « I » in the title is a ruffled piece of fabric. And what do we learn from all this? You can include ruffles everywhere… and anywhere!


I used paper and lace to create my Ruffles!!!

Amanda - I created flowers from paper ruffles. Instead of layering each paper fold over the previous paper fold, I simply offset them a bit to create a flower shape. For the paper, I used a black-white-gray paper collage.

Miwako- my choice is crape paper and the end of paper (Sassafrass Lass).


I created a fabric ruffle to *skirt* my layout, and a ruffle fabric flower accent. Both of these came together in a cinch. The how-to is on my blog.

I got out my sewing needle for this one (and I loathe sewing!!). I used the striped fabric to create ruffled flowers. I had some striped paper that was similar to my fabric and created a ruffle with that too which I layered my title on. I drew my color inspiration from the "By the Sea" scene in "Sweeney Todd".

Deborah -
I used some ruffled ribbon underneath my photo block, then I made a psuedo-ruffle using a piece of ribbon and staples.
