Here's a layout that was submitted at Sketches With Color for their April 1st Sketch and Color Palette Challenge.
Here's the sketch:
And here's the color palette. I loved these colors and had to play along!
Here's what I created:
This is our daughter and a portion of our son several years ago... having a piece of yummy cake!
The background paper looks blue.... but it's really TEAL. Sorry about that... not sure what happened.
Paper: Colorbok, DCWV, Other
Texture Paste: Home Made
Mister Huey's Mist
Wilton Color Mist
Clear Stickers Title
Gems: Home Made
Rosettes: Home Made
The paper edges were distressed and I added a flower/gem on top of that. A swirl stamp was added in the upper corner. This photo give you a better look at the misting too.
Here's my flower grouping. The rosettes are what I made and the gems are my newest creations... so fun to make! I added a few gems around the flowers too.
I used a stitches template to create the border on the background page. There are lots of layers and distressing.
I added teal colored clear stickers as my title.
A couple swirls were stamped just under the flowers. The center strip of cardstock was already embossed and I gently brushed it with a sanding block so they would stand out a bit more.
Another swirl stamp was added in the lower right of the photo.
Here's a closer look at the rosette and heme made gems.
I decided to play around with my own texture paste again and used my stones stencil. I misted the paste with teal mist, mixed it up and made the stones. Once it dried I misted it. Love how it turned out.
A closer look at the texture "stones."
Thanks so much for stopping by.
Have a wonderful day!
