you make me HAPPY - Kreative Koncepts April Color Challenge

Tuesday, April 15, 2014

The 15th of the month marks a new color challenge up at Kreative Koncepts/Scrap Friends!


One of the best things about a color challenge like this one for April, is that you can decide how
much of each color to use, which will dominate the page, etc.  I think this is a great way
to make a powerful statement with one of the colors...
That is how I tried to use the purple color from the color chart, as a punch for the hearts and raindrops.

I had decided at the beginning of this DT that all my color challenges would be using a black and white photo...that makes it easier to me to not be limited by pattern or colors in the photo.  In a way, this background paper is a bit of a cheat since it has 3 of the colors in the pattern itself.  I wouldn't normally do
that, but I love the way the colors are washed together and it felt Spring-ish too.


I was inspired to use the clouds and raindrops from this Pink Paislee stamp set.
I chose the phrase "you make me happy..." and I heat embossed it in white in the middle of the page.
I used other hints of the blue, green and yellow in the cluster of chipboard frames under the photo.


I didn't want this to be sad because obviously, my son brings so much sunshine into my life,
so I decided on purple raindrops...they would provide that punch from the one strong color
and something a little unexpected.  I also wanted to add the hearts like it was raining love...
sappy, I know.  That is what my little man does to me.
