color combos galore: boudoir fantasies
it's the 15th, which means there is a new awesome challenge up at color combos galore today!
and i have to admit....these colors scared me just a little. i don't think i have ever scrapped purple before....nor did i have anything in my stash that was purple. uh oh!
i finally found a piece of lavendar cardstock and a "purplish" ombre tag and decided i would run with it. i ended up recoloring some journaling cards and quote cards in photoshop to finish off my layout.
here is the inspiration board...
here is my layout and inspiration for this challenge...
Main Inspiration Photo#2: Focus on product (frames…I framed my layout onto a lavender piece of card stock)
Inspiration Photo#1: Focus on trends (wood pieces)
Inspiration Photo #1: Focus on trends (flowers…reminded me of my daughter's lavender tutu)
Inspiration Photo #4: Focus on accents (jeweled charms)
the colors are a little hard to discern after photographing. i did decide to go with more of a "muted" color scheme with little pops of the teal, plum and lime green. i used my typewriter to type my journaling at the bottom of my page and the awesome amy tangerine remarks stamp to stamp some sentiments along the top part of my picture.
the amy tangerine rub-ons add the perfect amount of detail to the page without being overwhelming to me.
and funny enough....this is maybe my favorite page ever. and it's purple. who would have thought!!
