color combo challenge #247

hello crafty friends! 

the new color combo #247 is LIVE! the colors this week are red - coral - wheat - goldenrod - seafoam and here is what i came up with - 

"LOVE this look" 

i based my layout on color combo #247: caribbean dreams

  i used all five colours from the colour palette on my page. my creative boost came from inspiration photo #1: focus on design: clustered elements {clustered accordion paper flowers}. 

other inspiration: inspiration photo #1: accordion paper flowers (idea: cake flowers); inspiration photo #2: washi tape flag strips {idea: flag strip name tag}; inspiration photo #3: cogs {idea: circle doilies}; inspiration photo #4: banner, repetition of the same elements {idea: garland}.

and here are some close ups from my project:

i started with a white cardstock, THE CRAFTER'S WORKSHOP "harlequin" 12x12" doodling template and panpastels. 

after the fixative spray has dried, i used THE CRAFTER'S WORKSHOP "mini harlequin" and "mini tile texture" 6x6" templates with modeling paste to add dimension to my background.

i did a lot of stamping using BOBUNNY's mixed media clear stamp sets and different colours RANGER ink pads.

the paper collection i used is from WEBSTER'S PAGES - modern romance. i fussy cut, embossed and die cut the pattern sheets to create my embellishments. 

the chipboard elements are from WORDS or WHATEVER. i used the arrow pack WOW1828. i covered the chippie with gesso and after it dried, i covered it with TIM HOLTZ crackle paint. 

for the accordion flowers i used pattern paper and TIM HOLTZ rosette die.

the little cameras are made with the DIE-NAMICS "cute cameras" die.

for my title i used another WOW chipboard from the "life elements word pack 3" WOW1874. i layered it on a stamp die cut, which i made with MARIANNE DESIGN die. the negative of this die cut, i used as a frame around my picture.

for the cogs i used SPELLBINDERS sprightly sprockets die.

the banner is also cut with a SPELLBINDERS DIE.

thank you for joining me today!
