Time for week #4's layout from Dixie Pieces. This week's challenge was to use a Raspberry, Apricot, Green Apple color scheme and painting on your page. I love the color scheme for this layout: so fun, refreshing, and summery:
I painted the chipboard letters and dry brushed the edges of the white BG paper.
Lately I've been looking at books on Softies--they have the cutest little expression. This trend inspired my little popsicle guy cut from a corner-rounded rectangle of PP, and accented with felt eyes, a drawn smile, a mini popsicle stick, and a little ribbon.
The DCWV word strip paper was the perfect colors to complete the journaling on the page: it's the SIMPLE THINGS that make us BLISS-fully HAPPY. The flower's center is accented with super tacky tape covered in seed beads. I've been wanting to do some beading on my layouts for a while now. This was a simplified way to get some beads on my page.
I love working with color schemes to jump start my layouts. I go through papers, and accents (this is where my color jars come in handy) and pull anything with the colors. Then grab a sketch (like Paper Crafts Planet sb082309 used here) and the page pretty much builds itself!
