Color Studio: Cool layouts
rainbow of colors on my pages (hey, even my Etsy shop is named after my rainbow obsession), so I was definitely pushing myself to limit my pages to a cool color scheme only.
her site here. It was also a great excuse for me to pull out my cameo and make a whole bunch of die cuts. I used a more colorful photo from Nandini's birthday, so the color scheme shifted from a cool one to more of a triphasic one.
This is also a much simpler page than I generally do, but I love how it turned out. Ali has such a good design eye that following her layout definitely made things easier.
I also snipped a piece of ledger paper and one of the color studio swatches. Originally I was going to make the layout about Lakshman's sixth week (and 06 is Yes, Peas - a nice green which goes with the cool color scheme). Then I switched gears to a more reflective theme. More specifically, wouldn't it be nice to know you are in the good old days when you are in them? Heck, maybe we are now.
I punched some strips but ended up only using one of those on the layout. I added a full pack of blue geotag rubons (in a non-literal sense) on the ledger page and added a little more watercolor. I just love how rub ons act as a resist. It's subtle but I like the definition it adds.
After I added my journaling I filled in my letter loops with blue marker in the style of Jill Sprott. Because it is gorgeous and something I've always wanted to try and also because she challenged us to try it on the JBS forum.
Linked up with Paper Issues, Lucky stars edition. How appropriate is that?
How about you guys? Have you made any projects from recent classes or scraplifted yourself lately? Do share!
