Wow – I had a lot of inspiration for this layout! First of all, over at Another Freaking Scrappy Challenge … we are challenging participants:
1 May is springtime, and time to be out in the gardens. Scrap something about your garden – how you love to be out in it, or what it means to you, or alternatively how you hate to be outside gardening at all. If you are not a gardener – you could also alternatively scrap about an outdoor sanctuary that you appreciate – perhaps your mother’s garden or a park????
If you haven’t played along with our challenges on the 1st and 15th of the month – you should. We are a friendly bunch, and our DT is absolutely inspirational.
Becky Fleck has posted an awesome sketch over at her Page Maps blog and asked participants to scrap a few themes. One theme is to create a layout about a place that’s special to you. Well, my garden is my sanctuary, and it is a very special place for me. Her sketch was also an inspiration for my layout. I followed it fairly closely for my design.
Meanwhile, those awesome ladies over at Scrapbooks and Cards Today blog have posted their latest Colour Suite challenge to use these colours in a layout:
I captured them all. The greys and black are in my chickadee photo, the pink in several papers, green in my butterfly and journalling spots, the rose in my titling, small roses and my flag on the right, and the orange in my pearl accents (see close up photos). Here is my layout using My Mind’s Eye Papers.
