Studio Calico NSD - Color Challenge

hello! i hope you had lots of fun scrapping during nsd last weekend. my in laws were in town over the labor day holidays and we were busy spending time together so i didn't have a chance to scrap. i did, however, manage to come up with a layout for a color challenge at studio calico before that. 

this is the mood board used for this challenge and here's what i made...

i absolutely love this mood board and am happy to be working on this color challenge! the image of the paints on the board inspired me to add mixed media into this page, so base on the colors on the board, i picked out the gelatos to create a background with the sweet nothings stencil by Teresa Collins. 

i colored the hearts with gelatos then i added water to blend them. There is no mint green in the set, so i blend the color using green, yellow and white gelatos. love how easy is it to blend you own colors and how it turned out! then I cut out 3 frames from the dear lizzy fascinating friends paper and colored them with gelatos to match the background. i attached the frames to a twine using wooden clothespin, flag pin and a green maggie holmes resin flower pin. 

next, i embellish the page with stickers, sequins, vellum shapes, a rose die cut, and rub ons. i love the scripted writing on the mood board so i wanted to add my title in a similar way. i dipped my brush into mr huey’s navy blue mist and wrote my title – I heart you. to balance the page, i added more ink splatters at the top left hand corner with mr huey’s gold and seafoam mist. 

here are some detailed shots...

i’m happy how this mood board has inspired me to create this layout. i would love for you to join me in this color challenge and create a project with this pretty mood board too!
