GDP Colour Challenge - Playgroup Scrapbook #GDP277

 Howdy all,

Welcome to my Sunday Session blog post as part of Global Design Project #GDP277 Blog Hop.

The Global Design Project has a range of different challenges from colours to sketches every week, but the one I look forward to the most is the colour challenge. The provide the selected colours and we can only use those plus Basic Black, Basic White, Vanilla and Crumb Cake.

Since #GDP277 was the pinks which always pose a challenge for me I thought maybe I would try a scrapbooking Memories & More page for my daughter. I loved this photo for it as it not only had the pinks in her dress but the carpet reminded me of the Sahara Sand colour.

The Love You Always Suite was so perfect as it matches the colour challenge colours and such beautiful specialty paper with foils and foil embossing. All the hard work of coordinating done for me, score!

To create the title I used a Blending Brush to add the Blushing Bride and Rococo Rose to the cardstock in an ombre style. Then added foam sheets to the back and die cut with the Playful Alphabet Dies. Adding the foam before die cutting makes your own perfect matching alpha foam stickers, no need to worry about having enough letters in a pack. I also used used the Blending Brush softening the edge of the page with the pinks. My tips are to hold the brush itself rather than the handle, start off the paper and gently move onto it and use the thick basic white cardstock for the best results. When die cutting with foam, run it through a few times.

The key to elements of a scrapbooking page are photo, title, mats & borders and journaling - minimum of the who, what, when, where. Journaling is definitely a sore point for me, a real struggle but I loved having a play with how I could split the basic journaling details all over the page. 

I even used the Scripty 3D Embossing folder on the Blushing Bride cardstock to add yet more texture. 

Embellishments are key to this page that's full of depth, texture and colour. I chose two spots to add heavy embellishments with lots of die cuts, varying paper types and colours. It was fun using a range of different dies to make my own embellishments. Of course it was all finished off with the Blushing Bride Metallic Ribbon and Rococo Rose pearls from the Pastel Pearls. 

If this page looks a bit over the top for you, here is another page from her book with some of the same papers that is beautiful but simple for a beginner.
