I was really quite drawn to the image Scrapbooking Top 50 used for their June challenge and typically started this page earlier in the month and have only just finished it.
I love orange and rarely get to use it on my pages so it was a given that this colour would feature on this layout. The fire very much enforced a night theme (I can remember many happy times sitting around a campfire with my family as a child, rugged up against the cold, staring up into the blanket of stars in the night sky). I ran with this theme using some older photographs I had not yet scrapped of a night hockey game my daughter was involved with as a teenager. It was always so bitterly cold at the hockey fields - the wind just seemed to whip across the exposed area and my dh and I would huddle, freezing, on the sidelines watching her play.
I have used some wonderful star (night sky) paper, sprinkled a few stars of my own, used a lot of orange touches and added in an arrow or two (as per the mood board).
Up early this morning to upload a page I have done combining two challenges - one for The Color Sisters which involves using a bracket (or two) on your page and the other for Another Freaking Scrappy Challenge where we have been asked to use the word Wonder or Wonderful on our layout.
Playing along with Another Freaking Scrappy Challenge again this month. The theme is "Your favourite place". Not sure I have an actual stand alone favourite but there are lots of amazing places I really love. Port Stephens area in NSW is one of them. Gorgeous spot :)
Creamy Orange/Tangerine, White and a touch of Grey Create a layout inspired byALLthe colours in this photo and you MUST USE AT LEAST ONE PIECE OF CHIPBOARD(as Scrapping Outback is known for ALL its Chippie)
I think I have it all covered :)
My apologies for the quality of the image - it is raining here today and not conducive to picture taking !
Running late again this month - I need more days lol. It was an unusual colour mood board on Scrapping Clearly - hmmm - how to make these work on a boy page. Maybe play up the blue and yellow and tone down the teal and purple.
I really liked the colour board on The Color Sisters this month - such a tranquil, restful colour scheme.
I picked up the pale blue and citrus tones for my page with touches of the khaki/grey. I love vintage style layouts so used this colour combination to scrap a 1930's heritage photograph of members of my UK based family.
Also submitting this to Clique kits - Anything goes April challenge.
