I used a lime and a dark green, red, greenish-yellow and some chocolate brown.
I was inspired by the woodgrain, the musical elements, the triangles and I used some chippies that reminded me of the overall feel of the clover (in terms of the long stems). I also used strips of paper in my layering – much like the piano keys.
Those gorgeous chipboard pieces are from 2Crafty Chipboard.
So I ran with the birthday theme; this picture was taken of my daughter at her birthday this year.
I used mainly pastels – shades of teal, blue, green and pink, with a few hints of coral / apricot. I was further inspired by the butterflies and the smaller elements ‘dotted’ around on the inspiration image. I added some flowers and some leaves. My gorgeous chipboard pieces are all from 2 Crafty chipboard – aren’t they divine?
I used black, white, red, yellow and blue. I went with a school theme and scrapped a photo of my child’s Grade 3 school photo. As inspiration from the image, I added a rounded corner frame, some ledger style papers and also paper with a grid pattern. You will also see some geometric shapes amongst my layering.
My journalling is based on a school theme.
I’m “that” mom who will order every single school or class photograph ever taken – and this is the most recent one, taken a little earlier this year. I love the enthusiastic smile on my child’s face; and I can only hope that her love for school lasts!
I am up on the 2 Crafty Chipboard blog today, sharing a layout I created of a little ‘adventure’ we went on at the beginning of this year. Head to their blog to see more details of this piece – and also to find the direct links to these amazing chippie pieces that I have used:
I immediately thought of this image as one of birthdays and / or milestones. And seeing as how my daughter has recently celebrated her 9th birthday, I went ahead and took total advantage of that theme! Here’s what I created:
I used most of the colours in the inspiration image for this one. I used a number as part of my title and sentiment. This photograph is of my daughter just before her birthday party started. Inspiration I drew from the image was polka dots, birthday elements, and a grid design.
This image just gave me holiday and relaxation vibes – so I went with that as my ‘theme’.
I used blue, white, pink, yellow and green. For my overall design, I tried to ‘copy’ the design of the inspiration image, basing it as a rectangle. I used proteas and other flowers, just as in the image and I also used stripes, stitching a frame and I did a bit of a watercoloured background. The photograph is also a bit of a play on the image – my daughter with her relaxed pose and hat! My journalling is based on the IW – Dream
On the second or third day of our holiday in the Cederberg earlier this year, you made your way down to the shallow river in front of our chalet and popped yourself into your floatie… you sat there for quite some time and all I kept wondering was what on earth you were thinking about.. what dreams you were dreaming… what ponderings you were pondering…
My latest project for 2Crafty Chipboard has gone live on their blog. Here is the link for you to follow to visit the blog; you will find all the details there on how to order your own chipboard – and also a few more photographs of my layout!
My colour palette includes black and white, pink, purple and a splash of gold.
I drew inspiration from the stripes, flowers, leaves and twigs and added those to my layout. My title has slanted script, just like the main part of the title of the inspiration image. I had some chippies that looked really close to the flower print on one of the hot air balloons and the girls dress – so I added them to my layout too. I spattered with a little gold mist and also incorporated some gold elements. As the inspiration image has a fashion theme, I decided to scrap (and journal) about my daughter’s sudden fashion sense awareness!
I’m just LOVING this next phase in your growth! I am no longer able to shop for you, as you have already developed your own taste – which I keep on getting wrong, so best I just give up already!
