Color Combos Galore 194 Challenge

After a busy weekend and week trying to unpack all my gear from attending a weekend retreat I finally had a chance to take a picture of my layout. This is very white space for me, and not my usual style. However since I couldn't take all of my bits and bobs with me I had to make do. I took these shots this morning so they are not the best.

I used a little bit of everything for this page, I covered the numbers in the date and the centre of the pin wheel is co-ordinations number cardstock. Papers used a from Cosmo cricket, Echo Park and some of the embellishments have been taken from a DCWV paper pack. I traced and cut the photo mat from another die cut shape I had and to bring the yellow in I did some stitching through the holes i had punched. I overlayed the photo with a 7Gypsy transparency. Other products used a dimensional pearls, ink, Pink Paislee and bazzill cardstock.

Thanks to all of those who dropped in and left comments whilst I was away on my retreat. This was a scrapbooking retreat that I organise for a group of us every year. We get 3 whole days of scrapping and all our feels cooked and have been doing this for about 6 years. Its a great opportunity just to scrap and not have to cook or clean. Mostly I worked on a mini album which is still not completed but it is 20 pages, hopefully I will have that up soon for you too look at.

Thanks for looking and for you lovely comments.

Pin It!

  2. Gorgeous LO! I am so glad that you stepped out of your usual style..the white space is perfect and the design of your LO is fab. Love the die cut background paper, the stitching, title, pin wheel embellie and all your other lovely details. You did a fab job!

  3. Love what you did here! That big red background paper looks great and that swirl really just tops this off...lovely!

  4. Hi Fi...thanks for your sweet words at my blog! I love what you did with #194. But honestly, I have to say I have admired all of your work since first meeting you (at Paper Secrets I think wasn't it?)!
    You have phenomenal talent girl!!!

  5. You did beautifully with this one Fi! I am a big fan of white space!! I hate the packing & unpacking that goes in to time away scrapping - it seems to take longer than the time away!
