color combo challenge #241 & MME

hello crafty friends!

the new color combo #241 is LIVE! the colors this week are taupe - red - buttercream - olive - stone and here is what i came up with - 


i based my layout on color combo #241: love, always

i used all five colours from the colour palette on my page. my creative boost came from inspiration photo #2: focus on design: repetition / sequence (duplicated focal photos and ballerina silhouettes).
other inspiration: inspiration photo #1: banner strips (idea: banner); inspiration photo #3: swirls, pearls, jewels (idea: bridal attire and accessories).

i started with white cardstock, DONNA DOWNEY "turkish grunge" mask and panpastels. after the protective layer has dried i began stamping. i used TIM HOLTZ "urban chic" {the fancy decorative element} and "good thoughts" {the sentiment stamped in red}

i outlined some of the masked pattern with FABER-CASTELL pitt artist pen - brown.

i used MY MIND'S EYE "lost and found 2: rosy" paper line and the collection embellishments - dimensional stickers, brads and journalling cards.

the red swirl is from FLOURISH WITH A BLING - grace pearl flourish. i cut it in two to match my design.

for my title i used a journalling card from MME. i cut out the glittery frame {which i used on different spots on my page}, inked its edges and layered it on brown carstock.

the smallest ballerina i stamped and cut out from pattern paper {i used the back side of my stamped image to match the direction of the rest of the ballerinas}. the red one a fussy cut from pattern paper.

i hope you enjoyed my creation today. 

here is a lost with some of the products i used on this layout:
