It's time for another fabulous challenge at Papercraft Star! This week Kim has prepared a beautiful color combination for you to play with.
The challenge is to use combinations of 2, 3, or 4 colors only! (not including neutrals)
I love this color combination, it is so pretty! I cheated a little by using yellow as an accent color that I pulled from one of the pattern papers I used. Yellow counts as a neutral right? Okay, well I tried! :)
I really enjoy making layouts and decided to create one for this challenge. I used the sky blue, red and purple from the color combination, along with kraft, black and white (neutrals), and then I added yellow. I used the Butterfly collage sheet from The House Across The Bay to create my own embellishments for my page.
My daughter dressed herself this particular day and she is my sunshine. I see her as such a free spirit so I titled this layout "Be Yourself.... wherever you go, with all your heart." Butterflies remind me of the same, so I thought they would make the perfect embellishment fluttering around the page.
I used a 1 3/4" circle punch to create the background pattern on my page and added some machine stitching. This is a great layout to use with your scraps!! I used my craft knife to scrape a squiggly frame around the photos.
I used scraps and leftover pieces to create this little accent at the top corner of the page, adding the machine stitching once again to tie everything together. I love the way this page turned out and I hope my daughter will appreciate it when she is older.
Come play along with us at Papercraft Star, we would be happy to have you! To qualify for this weeks prizes, please submit your entries for this challenge by 6:00am EST on Monday October 10th.
I am so glad you stopped by today!
