Weekend Challenge 6/25/16

24 June 2016 - 04:18 PM

For this weekend's challenge let's create a layout using a complementary color scheme. I love working with color, and having the color wheel sure helps choosing complimentary colors.

 

Because it's Summer I'd like you to choose a warm color - like red, yellow, or orange, and then choose the complementary color to go with the color you chose. (I'm attaching a simple color wheel to help you.)

 

A complimentary color is the one opposite another color on the Color wheel. Using complementary colors creates contrast on the page. Typically one color acts as the dominant shade and the other as an accent. Neutrals work well with a complementary scheme as they provide a place for the eye to rest.

 

Please remember to post your layout in the Weekend Challenge Gallery and a link to your layout in this thread.

 

I'll be back to post my layout.

 


May 31st Newsletter Challenge

31 May 2016 - 04:29 PM

I'm so sorry to be late - I am moving and today was the last day to move the last of my stuff.... my computer is still in it's box, I'm so forgetful!

 

Blending is one of my favorite things to do in digital scrapbooking. It adds interest and texture, with an artsy feel to my layouts.

I challenge you use one of the following SS blending techniques papers to make your background, and then blend a photo on top of that background.

 

Here are some templates as an example. There are tons of blending templates in our boutique:

Happy blending - and be sure to post your layout in the Newsletter Challenge Gallery, and a link to that layout here in this thread.

Terrible Accident I'll recover

25 May 2016 - 06:37 PM

First off, I am or will be okay. I had a terrible accident, but I am doing better now. I decided to go horseback riding, which I haven't done in quite a while. Well, I got on the horse and started out slow, and then we went a little faster, and then we were going as fast as the horse could go. All of a sudden I fell off and caught my foot in the stirrup and the horse was dragging me around in a circle. It wouldn't stop, it just kept going around and around. Thank goodness the store manager at K-Mart came out and unplugged the carousel.
