This was a challenge for me, on multiple levels. I have never been great with limited colors and patterns. I love to mix up tons of happy colors and designs when I paper craft. Today was a different story. While today’s steal My Mind’s Eye Necessities -Red & Teal was created to have a great supply of modern basics at your fingertips, I decided to try to use it on one project. This was tough for me, but I kind of love how it turned out. Today ‘s Monday Craft Madness theme is:
Create something monochromatic; a card, a layout or some other paper-crafting project. Here’s what I created:
This is a canvas approximately 12″ x 18″ and I wanted to show off this adorable newborn photo of baby Zachary. I love the patterns and colors of the papers in this collection and the fact that the color on the vellum papers is foiled – what is better than that? Maybe the glitter monogram alphas and the glitter washi tape, not much more in the world is better than that.
I tried three or four times to set the papers and embellishments to my liking and then I just decided to go for it. Stuck everything down and started to embellish. All of the texture and dimension with one color scheme has made me so happy. I wasn’t sure I would love this project, but in the end I may have to steal baby Zachary so I can keep this canvas.
