Color Me Scrappy Challenge #73

Saturday, November 1, 2014

Note: If you've come here looking for my Stuck?! November 1st Sketch post, please scroll down.

Hello again!  Just popping back in with my take on Color Me Scrappy's latest palette.  I had a difficult time pairing its heap of neutrals with my bins full of colorful pics.  It would be a great palette for your black and white pics!  But I did finally locate a few that I think do it and them justice.  Enjoy!
I started this page by securing a number of Cameo-cut, vellum circles, with embroidery floss, strategically, throughout my base page and trimming its outside edges with color-coordinating strips of patterned paper, as well as a couple bits of Washi, all anchored with gold-threaded, zig-zag, machine stitches.  The right-side strips were dressed up with a "DATE:" 10/16/12 label, anchored with a bit of music flair, backed with more of that gold thread.
I then secured a trio of paper strips, two of which were hand-cut in the form of banners, just left of vertical center...
and topped them with even more yummy, color-coordinating, patterned papers, all of which were anchored with gold-threaded, straight, machine stitches, as well as a "THREE" tag.  It seems like these pics were taken just yesterday, and yet, she was not quite even four-years-old in them.  Sigh.
My photos were then matted with Whisper White cardstock; adhered, in a haphazard column, over the paper bits; and grounded with the Cameo-cut, from Black cardstock, "sing LIKE NO ONE IS LISTENING" title.
Before anchoring everything down with stitching, I wrapped my paper stack with a bit of seam binding ribbon.  That way, once everything was secured and I had tucked in a little, kraft, perforated strip, just for a bit of added interest and texture, it could be tied in a bow and embellished with a trio of hand-cut, from patterned paper, fall leaves.
A quartet of phrase stickers, some of which were given a bit of dimension with foam tape, complete the look.
Further inspiration for this page came from Let's Get Sketchy's October Week 4 Challenge...
