Thursday Treasures! colour scheme!

Straight off I know some people will hate this … But others will LOVE it!


Have fun being in the pink!

As for me… Well I actually decided to use a page I started a couple of weeks ago and finish it off for this as it had a base of the required pink! But as the papers are very mixed in colour… You may suggest that I strayed from the remit … But hey it is my challenge and this works as a “pink” layout for me!

Here was the starting point with the sketch from Helen but using slightly different DSP and some added bits and pieces!


I decided on florals rather than spots for mine!


I also added a large doily as a layer underneath the vertical panel. This was it at the point I started it. It then got left until I finished it today. Before I started putting it together I made some decisions …
1. I changed the DSP vertical panel to also be floral so I had all three florals on show … This is so different for me but I like it!
2. I corner rounded everything!
3. I went stash shopping in my existing stash and found stickers and little hessian tags etc. which I added to the layout.
4. I wanted to incorporate some stamping so I added some stamped, water coloured and then glazed flowers which are my new stamps Darcy designed for Paperartsy. Love them! I kept them washed out in style to contrast with the bold DSP.

So I finished with this…

I decided on the green strips of journalling with the white pen, and some blue and white squiggly line doodles for outlines.

This is a madly busy page, and quite in contrast from my usual style but the paper spoke to me with these pictures of the princess having fun on the hay bales at the farm and so I just went with the flow!

Happy crafting!
