I created this LO for October’s ‘white with a twist’ challenge over at Scrapping Outback.
The challenge is to create a layout inspired by ALL the colours in the field of flowers (above) and you MUST use at least 1 piece of chipboard.
You must use WHITE combined with the colours in the picture. You can use printed paper as long as these colours are the main focus of the paper. There can be other colours on the printed paper, but not too much to take away from the colours in the inspiration picture.
You can use a small amount of black/brown just for a little stamping, inking, journaling or just as a small accessory; however it is NOT to be the main focus of your layout.
You can use as little or a lot of each colour, but every colour or shade of that colour in the picture MUST be used. You can use varied shades of the colours - it depends on the inspiration that you get from the picture.
The photo was taken while celebrating my late Mother-In-Law’s 80th birthday at Valentine’s Buffet Restaurant. I chose the photo because of the colour of her blouse – she had proudly chosen and bought it for her special day :)
My main tip for this LO is that if you don’t have ‘quite the right’ colour in your stash – you can always change it :) :) :) I’ve used white cardstock and painted it – the base background was too ‘in my face’ to start with so I just lightly wiped some white gesso over it. The Manor house white frame was white and I’ve painted it :)
