We are so happy you are here today. We have a brand new challenge for you today and the topic is simple.
Make a project using red,white,and blue. It is almost Independence Day, after all!
Tina Walker and Suzanne Sergi are joining in the challenge today. Here is what they came up with.
I love color. By adding white, gray or black to any color, you can achieve different tints, tones, and shades. Because of my love for color, color challenges are especially fun! Unless a color challenge is specific to the tint/tone/shade to be used, you can create an endless array of projects with just 3 colors.Supplies:Find Your Wings & Fly-Sky's the Limit:Look patterned paper, No Limit paper, Find Your Wings & Fly, Layered Ephemera paper,6x6 paper pad,Chipboard Accessories, Sticker Accessories,Decorative Brads,Stamps;Find Your Wings & Fly-Up and Away:Layered Stickers,Stamps, Enamel Dots,Word/Alpha Stickers;Misc:Punch: Jenni Bowlin, Ink: Archival, Adhesive: American Crafts (tape runner), Imaginisce (foam tape), Silhouette Cameo
I'm a non-traditional color person myself. When allowed to 'stray' outside the norm, I gravitate towards the outer edges of color. When asked to create a layout for the 'Red, White & Blue' challenge, I immediately grabbed my 'Find Your Wings & Fly' product and searched for different tints, tones, and shades of red/white/blue.
I layered multiple chipboard, stickers and die cut pieces. I also added and entire word/alphas sheet to my cluster for a fun and totally new look!
So next time you are challenged to create a project using a group of colors, think outside the box. You might like what you see. :)
With Fourth of July around the corner, I thought a Fourth of July page would be perfect for this week's assignment. I loved this photo of my daughter with her friend, Stefani. Their necklaces that they are wearing in the photo inspired me to revisit the Collectable collection. It is definitely not your traditional Fourth of July colors.
Supplies: Collectable-Remarkable:Adorable paper,Day Dates Paper,Handsome Adorable paper,Day Daily Paper,Original patterned paper,decorative brads,Collectable-Notable:Dream paper;Boy Crazy:decorative brads
However, this collection is trend and full of color! I loved the Handsome paper with the fun starbursts. I used this along the bottom of the page. Lots of movement on this patterned paper, and that screams celebration to me.
I also cut a few starbursts out, and used them as details throughout the page. I used the Silhouette to cut my title, and added color to the embossed pattern with Faber Castell Gelatos.
