It's been too long since I had some SPARE time to create...
Usually takes me about an hour to create a challenge page... but I fiddle for a couple of hours at The Crafty Chain's all day crop yesterday... must be a bit rusty!!
Anyway, I found out what the colour was this month at White with One
A lovely deep teal-ly green shade
and there is a Mood board too!!
I liked the sole palm tree im the bottom right corner,
it reminded me of a photo of Adrian and his Grandad,
enjoying the sun in the garden..
I first chose a sheet of Kaisercraft paper from the recent Morning Dew collection, that had a lovely print in the exact shade... perfect!! By cutting out the middle you create a border for white cardstock and then a piece to use both sides as part of the layers - good budgetting!!
Starting with a sheet of white I swiped some ink across the background - swiped some crackle onto a set of 7 dots chipboard (old!!) - added some paper behind the frames and some photos too - then just layered it... done!!
I love how Kaisercraft have titles or sentiments along the barcode strip.. always come in handy!!
Finnabairs Patina Butterflies were a lovely tone for Marine Green,
You don't need a ton of products to create a layout, this layout has one sheet of patterned paper, one sheet of cardstock, one 6' square of chipboard pieces, 2 metal butterflies, 2 white tags, a scoop of crackle paste, a swipe on ink on the background and the chipboard pieces and some adhesive to attach everything - easy!!
Plenty of room for a bit of journalling about the memory from these photos..
