This is my take on the new Scrap Friends Color Challenge.
It is several neutral colors of krafts, browns and white with a nice muted royal blue.
In keeping with my original plan, I wanted to use black and white photos with the color challenges
so that the colors complimented the photo while taking center stage. I tried a couple new techniques
with the background stencil.
I wanted to use modeling paste on this 12x12 stencil but wanted it in a circular shape.
I used a piece of printer cardstock and cut a rough circle in it. I then layered the modeling
paste on, fairly thickly. After letting it dry, I replaced the clean stencil and used my finger
to paint some watered down gelatos on top of the stencil. I kept the stencil lined up so that the
paint would only be on top of the raised paste and not covering it completely.
I wanted to have lots of texture and rough edges, even though the photo is of my son
desperately hugging his best buddy.
I loved this color palette because it is such a departure from the pink, mint,
pastel kick I am so drawn to right now! it is great to shake it up every now and then...
Check out the Scrap Friends Blog for the challenge and all the other DT layouts,
