Scrapbooking, This Way

ThisWay
 
I made this page for another great color challenge with a fall theme going on over at the Memory Nest right now.  I was really inspired by the gray color.  It isn't a color I normally think of for fall, but I loved using it as a base.  I stamped a bunch of leaves onto the background to bring out the orange, but the laves were a bit too distracting, so I ended up water coloring some of the page orange to tone down the leaves a bit.  I also painted some vertical lines yellow to mimic the corn even though yellow wasn't exactly in the color challenge.  Finally, if you look at the upper right corner you can see I made a spot for the map.  I tried to make it in such a way that the map would hide the little bit of blue and pink that was on that paper.  I couldn't find any other way to hide that blue and pink.  I didn't have any embellishments that were big enough to cover it without loosing the grid work.

I had a lot of fun adding a variety of embellishments.  My favorite is the Doodle Bug brad.  I also am loving the title.  It totally reminds me of bending my way through the corn maze.

Valentine's Day Wreath

Now that the Christmas decorations are down, it is time to make some Valentine's Day decorations to put up! I have seen some in the store, but it is much more fun to make your own.  So here is how I made my sweet heart wreath.
First you need a hoop (the one I used had about a 7 in diameter), 7 big wooden hearts, 8 small wooden hearts, paint, glitter, ribbon, and some hot glue. I took all my hearts and painted them a solid color and then went back over them and made some patterns or outlined them. I thought they were looking a little boring so I went back and put some glitter on random ones. Then I went around and hot glued the big ones and tried to make them as evenly spaced as possible. Then I hot glued the smaller ones on top of the bigger hearts, tied some ribbon, and then hung on my door!

I've got one more rainbow inspired layout to share. This time I played along with Scrap Our Stash. I used the following five items up from the list. 1. Stripe Paper (I may have a rainbow stripe addiction when it comes to paper) 2. Paper Clip (the orange arrow at the top) 3. Wood Veneer (the cute arrow) 4. Flair (I've got two.  The circle heart from Amy Tangerine and the square sunshine from a Freckled Fawn Kit) 5. Enamel Dots (I've got a few green in one corner and a few orange in another)
I used a bunch of pop dots on this layout to keep some of the corners up and to give the clouds some layering.  I kind of forgotten just how handy those little things can be in giving depth to a page. I also decided to keep my journaling hidden since this page has so much going on pattern wise with no good breaks.

I love yellow pages.  They always make me so happy.  I made this for SWAT drill 16.  The layout sketch was a fun one to work with.  I stitched the pink cloud and then made another one out of some vellum.  At first the cloud was going to be yellow, but I wanted to make it stand out more so pink it was!  I also used some weird texture board that I had laying around and I misted it up with yellow, orange, and pink. Normally, I make my pages about the event in the picture.  This photo was originally going to tell about my daughter playing in the sprinkler, but it turned out to be more about her expression.  So my journaling was more like a little prayer for my daughter then the normal story telling. The twist for the drill was some twine.  I used it for the button and I also wanted to use it to stitch the cloud, but I only had yellow and blue twine and that wasn't working well.
