Hi Creative Friends,
February is here and it’s time to share another fab challenge at Scrap the Girls. This month we are being inspired by a “Constance Hall” themed mood board.
I just adore the colours in this one and all of those florals; so so pretty! Constance is a proud Mumma bear so it seemed fitting to scrap a pic of myself and my Miss 11. Here is my take:
I began the page by pulling out some water-colours that matched the Yellow, Orange, Pink and Blue panels in the mood board. Then, with a general idea of the design for my page, went about adding them in blocks using the packaging technique. Once that was dry, I then added splatters over the top. I made sure to keep the colours in sections and not to mix them up too much to avoid things getting muddy and messy!
Next, I pulled out a couple of packs of the Celebration Flowers cut files, these are the exact size you will receive them if you order as CUSTOM cuts. I then went about colouring each of them in the same four colours as above… the main idea for this page was to create a large cluster for my photo mat with layers of the feature colours in the mood board.
Once I was happy with the colours on the cut files, I positioned them onto my page. Next, I mounted my photo. I went with a black and white photo for this page as I knew I already had a lot of colour going on and didn’t want it all to get too much. I love the pop of the Black and White with the bold colours so much!
With the position of the photo and the cut files now locked in, it was time to add the smaller embellishments to finish out the page. I’ve kept with the colour blocking adding yellow elements in the yellow section, orange elements in the orange section and so on.
I’ve also added paper flowers in the coordinating colours and love the dimension they add.
Above, you can see the blue section, I even managed to find some blue butterflies!
To finish the page out, I added buttons from my stash in the same co-ordinating colours. I then trimmed the edges and mounted onto a piece of pale pink cardstock and sewed around the edge. I add a frame in this way to most of my pages, I just love how it finishes them off.
