Happy Sunday! Hope you had a good week back to work/school (just depends, really!). I felt a bit rough this week and still try to fight off a cold. That’s one of the reasons why this layout here was just finished today!
This week Shimelle challenged us to go monochromatic and use just one colour on our layout. As my picture was colourful already, I thought I go with one of the colours which was actually not on there at all: turquoise-greenish-blue
I kept repeating the lines in the photo with my paper strips, which I dug out of my scraps drawer. Also, my journaling repeats the diagonal lines. Can you spot the little cameras?! I found the paper which was originally by October Afternoon deep down in the green/blue section – it matches perfectly with my colours!
As I wasn’t sure if I should put the camera border down, I asked the lovely ladies from Shimelle’s Scrapbook like a Superhero group on Facebook. Guess what ALL of them suggested! Well, yes. Sure. How can you resist cameras? I certainly cannot. Thank you for everyone who helped me out with this small dilemma!
For the rest of the layout I just picked out a lot of my stash with the matching colours. I particularly like the little stars and the people shapes – really cute! I also try to use my stamps more often and this time I found a frame stamp really helpful (Amy Tangerine, AC) and the arrows in a line (Studio Calico). The big one “I love this” wasn’t used often enough and as it fit perfectly here, I just used it too!
Yesterday my first Like For Ever kit (UK-based) arrived and I am excited to cut into it. After thinking about joining for a while already, I finally caved in last month. The March Kit is the lovely paper from Cocoa Vanilla “Free Spirit”. Lovely lightweight colours, great patterns and adorable embellishments. Really intrigued to start!
Thank you for stopping by on my blog. Have a lovely week and CU next Sunday!
