I like to draw on my layouts with watercolor paints and that's exactly what I did with this month's Creative Weekly layout! In sticking with the theme, "red", I used the colors red, white and pink. Watercolor, when applied, is soft and serene. I think this type of look fits perfectly with the Maggie Holmes collection. I'm in love with this collection, especially the patterned papers. It's cute & playful!
I always get super excited when I have all my children together, and especially when they are all open to taking pictures! I love how happy they all are in these photographs. With this week being based on the color red, I thought these photographs would be perfect with the red brick background and their happiness. To add to the background paper, I added some splatter of red to enhance the design. I really love how the photographs "pop" with the red backing I placed behind them. I love working with red and kraft paper together, but adding a touch of the teal blue accents also helped pull everything together with this piece.
Very red. Wasn't that what you thought when you saw my layout? You're right, this is not something of my usual. But, I must admit, the color is growing on me. And what is more perfect than Red for February? With a red, yellow~ish and turquoise color scheme in mind, I went hunting in my scraproom. I picked a few papers from the Maggie Holmes and Sleigh Ride collections. I then chose to use the Gold Foil Thickers from On Trend and a few embellishments from Fourteen. They were just perfect for what I had in mind! :)
I used the patterned papers to 'fill up' the negative spaces left by the Silhouette, and stitched wavy lines with white thread as a texture addition. I'm loving the way this layout turned out! I'd say that if red isn't your color per say, try it at least once. You might be surprised!
Red is the color of love and according to me there is nothing stronger than a mother's love; these photos of my girl wearing a hand-made "Donkey Skin" costume makes my heart smile. I wanted to spread love throughout the page. I did so using my Cameo. I cut a large "Love" title from red cardstock and arranged an assortment of embellishments around it. I cut arrows from Fourteen's patterned papers. I then transferred the same papers in "strip" form beneath my photos. There's even a hint of Gesso - can you spot it? I went on to balance the red with some blue & green that matches well with the photo's garden background.
