This week the Scrapbook Nerd DT will be working projects based on this month's color challenge. What can I say this challenge is perfect for my "Black and white with a shade of rainbow" obsession.
It all started with building the background using the Pinkfresh Studio watercolor collection on a piece of Vicki Boutin foundation paper that had been gessoed.
While the background dried, the chevrons (1in wide) for this project were created from the 6x6 Joyful Day paper pad -Pinkfresh Studio- and Flower Market collection - Carta Bella-. These were stitched to the background.
A second set of smaller chevrons (0.5in wide) was stitched to the bottom right corner of the page, followed by the title -i used word stickers from the Joyful Day collection and Puffy Alphas from the Everyday Musings collection both from Pinkfresh Studio-.
Once the picture was set in place, small clusters of embellishments were set around it. I chose to color block the embellishments so that they match the color of the background. All that was left to add was a few lines of journal and some drops of gold ink. Here is the final layout:
I love the colors of the layout, and how the black and white papers ground the page, and contrast and combine seamlessly with the colors and papers. I have created a small video on how this came together (forgive the stuffy sound of my voice, as i am fighting a bad cold at the moment!)
Remember to check the Scrapbook Nerd store for all and so many more goodies that are constantly arriving to the store. If you have questions on how this came together, please do not hesitate to contact me!
