As much as I love sketch challenges, I also love color challenges. They force the scrapper to think outside the box and use colors that you usually don’t use. For the ACOT February Color Challenge, the hostess gave us a color swatch – with taupe, 2 shades of purples and grays, and a blue:
I ended up using all the colors except the dark gray. Here is what I came up with:
I used a variety of products –
Background paper: Bo Bunny
Stars: STudio Calico
Washi Tape: Love My Tapes
Butterfly PUnch: Martha Stewart
Pearls: Zva Creative
Mini Alphas: My Little Shoebox
Fabric Ribbon: Webster’s pages
3D paper flower: Basic Grey
Buttons, paint (to paint the stars): from stash
The layout is based on Let’s Get Sketchy Week 2 – February:
I really loved the little details, especially the banner and butterflies, which I used, and also swapped out some of the butterflies for stars.
I also did this layout for ACOT’s 3 in a Row – pearls; 3D embellishment; and a journaling spot.
