April Challenge is Up!
I had to really dig into my stash to find vibrant papers, it's not something I work with a lot. The vellum background was very busy. I made sure to cover lots of it with solid bold colors that matched the eggs in the photo, and the leaves in the background. I of course had to add in my own handwriting for the journaling section, my son loves to read the stories I put in the scrapbooks.
The eggs I made myself. I did them in a word document, printed them out, fussy cut them, and used them as templates for the ones on the page. I had fun decorating them and making each one special, but it was a time consuming process. Especially since I made a few I decided clashed with the background- so then I made more. Now I have extra eggs for the next layout I do, and a page I am very happy with.
The blue flower needed a bit of color. It was too light and green and clashed with the blue background paper, so I grabbed my handy Spectrum Noir marker out of the new organizer I just made and made it a different shade of blue.
"Easy peasy lemon squeezey" as my son would say! I hope you will join us in our challenge this month over on the blog if you have some Easter or spring photos around that need to be turned into a page. Show us your Easter/spring memories, you could be our next winner!!
