Color scheme challenge

Welcome to another day of the Shimelle scrap party. I looked over ALL the challenges this morning (benefit of her being GMT and me being PST) and decided to start with the color story challenges since it best fit the project I wanted to work on next.

Using the colors tan, red, aqua, navy and yellow I created this page about my kids playing Legos. I thought the colors were a perfect fit for a Lego page!

I grabbed my Shimelle supplies of course and went to work. The English Breakfast pattern paper from the True Stories line had the perfect combo of blocks of color on one side and tan on the other. When I saw the cork house in Shimelle’s cork stickers and knew that would fit my story. Add in more cork for my typical embellishment triangle and I was off an running. The cork pieces didn’t quite fit what I had in mind, so here is my tip for you today. Don’t be afraid to alter your cork stickers!

With the ampersand I used a die circle to cut it down to just the size & piece I wanted.

With the house sticker, it was just to big for what I wanted. Scissors solved that problem!

Hope you check out Shimelle’s challenges. And don’t forget to try altering some of your supplies if they aren’t working at first. Besides that leaves extra pieces that you can then use on other projects.
