color fever


Today's post involves color. Lots and lots of color. 
Today I am posting over at Heidi Swapp and the theme is Color Fever.
We decided to play up Mint Green, Tropicana Teal, Chartruese, and Tinsel.

For this assignment, I decided to keep things simple (read: just got back from CHA and lots of assignments on my desk not to mention  the priority of my family so this is what I did)...know what I mean?
But seriously, this was to keep the focus on color. And with Color Shine as the foundation of this project, I think I was successful in doing just that.

 There is a write up over at Heidi's blog. So I invite you to go there to read more about the why of this layout.

And here I will share with you the how, of this project::

This layout starts with textured white cardstock.
A piece of Vintage Chic pattern paper was used as a secondary background. Trimmed to about 8 1/2 x 11 inches.
The layers under the 4x4 photo start on the bottom in the following order:
~a piece of the Bookkeeping Vintage Chic paper
~vellum  - reinforce with the green Day Glow Neon tape at the lower left corner
~notched piece of the dots side of Beautiful Vintage Chic
~place Color Magic Note Card sprayed in Tinsel Color Shine at upper right hand corner of papers
~tuck Vintage Chic Note Card under above Note card at the lower right corner of the papers.
~a 4 1/2 x 2 inch notched Beautiful Vintage Chic paper (the dot side) is layered next
~add pop up adhesive to the photo and place over all papers

Now for some ‘tuck in’ embellishments:
Spray white textured card stock with the Chartreuse Color Shine. Punch with a tab paper punch and tuck behind photo at the top.
Tuck a white small shipping tag and a Vintage Chic Mini Tag under the photo along the left side .
Spray three pieces of scallop Artisan Ribbon with Tinsel, Chartreuse, and Mint Green Color Shine. Layer a top one another and sew to background paper just below photo.
Add Vintage Chic Mini Tags on the Note Card and layer a Buzz Word arrow (“HAPPY DAY”) . Add the arrow with pop up adhesive.
Add BuzzWord butterflies with pop up adhesive.
Place “happiness” BuzzWord to the right of the layers. Add a hash tag from the Glitter Alpha next to the title. Place a “happiness” Definition Sticker below and add Day Glow Neon Tape.
Sew small portion of scallop Artisan Ribbon sprayed with Tinsel Color Shine to top left of layout. Add a strip of Neon Tape with a part of a Sentiment Sticker attached to the top.

When it was all placed, I added splotches of Color Shine in Tropicana Teal, Chartreuse and Tinsel. On Heidi's blog I share how I got those to splotch like they do.

Thanks for stopping in today. Hoping next time is not as much time between posts. Appreciate your comments.
