Prima's November Build a Page Entry

Sooooo, this entry is a bit different than my normal Prima BAP entries.

I was in a tad bit of a slump when it came to layouts, so I decided to do a burlap canvas for the November Prima BAP challenge.

The sketch that was to be used as inspiration was designed by someone who I look to for inspiration daily: Keren Tamir.

My take on the sketch via canvas is below:

I initially used some of my Prima Romance Novel scraps for the base texture.. Then I used some gesso on top of that, along with some modeling paste with the Prima Bubbles stencil on top of that.
I stamped on the gesso'd background using archival ink with the Prima Romance Novel background stamp, but it kinda got covered up in the creation process.

I threw on some Prima Color Bloom sprays and altered a resin frame with an image cut out from the Time Traveler's collection. Embellished with some cheesecloth, Prima flowers and venice lace that I cut apart.

Feel free to leave me a comment if you have any questions!!

The Latest Colorful Creations Sketch Challenge is Now Live!

The Colorful Creations challenge that started on the 15th incorporates both a sketch and a color palette.

The sketch was a piece of cake to work with, but the colour palette made me a bit nervous...

The sketch
The colour palette
These colours were so NOT my colours - In order to remove the intimidation I was feeling with these colours, I decided to pick a couple for my main colours and try to incorporate other colours wherever I could.

I ended up with this layout:

As you can see, I used the red (Ablaze) and black (Tricorn Black) from the colour palette as my main colours. 
Then for the embellishments, I brought in some of the pink (Lei Flower) and lime green (Lime Rickey) on the flowers, pearls and leaves.

I'm very happy that I was able to incorporate so many of the colours that originally cause me a tiny bit of panic when I saw them posted up for the design team. LOL

I hope this has helped in encouraging you to try a step-by-step process when it comes to incorporating certain colours on your layout!

I expect to see your take on this sketch and/or colour scheme on the Colorful Creations blog!!
