Hi everyone! It is time for the JULY Challenge over at the Challenge YOUrself Blog!! This month we have a "DOUBLE" Challenge for YOUr Scrappy Pleasure!! Not only is there an AWESOME Sketch, we are throwing a little spin on it, and adding another Challenge "Ingredient!" We are asking you to incorporate 3 of the 4 colors shown next to the sketch.
Click HERE for full details, and see the sketch and the colors below. I really hope you will play along with us this month!! You could WIN a great Heidi Swapp PRIZE too!
and here is my Design Team Layout for your Inspiration!
I love the added color combo challenge! I happened to have purchased the perfect papers for it, just before we went away on vacation. I think the "Indian" theme of the papers works great with the "Selfie" shots we took when visiting the Totem Poles while in Stanley Park, Vancouver, BC last month -don't you?!!
Here are a few close ups for you:
|I used my new Tim Holtz Ranger Distress Stain "Fossilized Amber," on the wooden embellishments, to make them "pop" and to tie in with the "Yellow" color for the Challenge.|
|Keeping with the "feather" theme of this paperline - I used my Spellbinders "Feathers" Die to cut out some feathers and added them with 3D Pop Dots, to add some dimension to the layout.|
|I punched holes in a journaling card, and tied some fibers through them - I think it added some fun texture.|
It was our first time in Vancouver, and we were only there for a day before and a day after our Disney Wonder Alaska Cruise. I have to say, the city was BEAUTIFUL, very very clean, and everyone was super friendly.
