Shimelle challenge number 4
Amazingly I have managed to complete another layout for Shimelle's online crop this weekend. Not only this, but it uses two of my least-used colours, mainly because I can't wear them, so don't automatically pick them to scrap with.
It's the fourth challenge of the crop, but it also fulfils another challenge, number two. Challenge 2 is to use three papers from different manufacturers. The three papers used here [are very old, and] come from Sassafras "life is Beautiful", Fancy Pants "Celebrate", and Tinkering Ink "Botanical Bliss" ranges. All were released before this current decade began, so it's nice to finally get some use out of it.
Challenge number 4 is to use grey, yellow and one other colour of my choice. This is the hard one for me, since I rarely use yellow. I do have it in my collection though, and managed to dig out some photos with yellow on too. The only grey paper/card I possess is some A4 sheets from my 1990s cardmaking stash (yes, I have already admitted I'm a hoarder!), but I think that this size worked well with the small photos. The photos also decided the other colour for me - had to be red to go with my DD's coat.
I also got the chance to try out bunting finally. I've had desires to do a LO with bunting on, and I like it, a lot. I can see me and bunting becoming good friends! I also got to use some baker's twine, which I got with a Folksy purchase recently, so I've clearly redeemed myself and come bang up to date with that. I'm enjoying browsing everyone's layouts, and am looking forward to more challenges too. Please let me know if you're playing along...
