I was looking forward to this week's challenge, as the colours are absolutely stunning together. Perfect for a summery, nautical or a masculine project, I find. I liked it so much I decided I wanted to make a page I could keep in my album using those colours.
I was looking at my stack of pictures and settled on the ones I had taken in Utah during the Riverton tour, which includes a peek at the warerhouse where our orders are packed and shipped from. The colour of the boxes sort of fitted with the Peach Parfait colour, which is how I decided on those pictures. The design was inspired by one of the May Page Maps sketches. Don't you like all those little ribbons on the border? Great way to use scraps and add pizzazz to a page.
I also reached for the Grunge Rock set, which I got in May during the Scrapbooking promotion. I used the argyle stamp to create a background, the "No. 1" in White ink and the "Real" stamp to create a dimensional accent. I was thinking of chain work and thought I could line up characters created with the All in the Family set, which I stamped tone on tone at the bottom of the page. I think it turned out pretty cute! Just a different way of using this set, without using watercoloring. I picked out an arrow from the Perfect Pair On Board chipboard set, covered it with Celery Craft ink, added clear embossing powder and then wrapped the middle part of the arrow with white baker's twine. The big letters were die-cut out of Peach Passion Designer paper (level 1 hostess pack) and covered with Crystal Effects for an epoxy letter look. At the top of the pictures, I added two matching paper ribbons and added some matching fabric brads from the Occasions mini over them.
I used another piece of paper from the same paper pack to create my journaling block. I trimmed it down to size, punched two of the corners with the corner rounder punch and the other side with the Spirals punch. I handwrote my journaling with a marker and added a Designer brad in the top corner. To make the details of the metal brad stand out more, I dipped the head of the brad in Not Quite Navy Craft ink and then wiped the extra ink off with a tissue. I dryed the ink with my embossing tool (be sure to use plyers to hold the brad, as the metal will get very hot!) before adding the brad to the page. I also used the distressing tool from the Cutting Kit to distress the edges of the Pear Pizzazz cardstock.
