June 2017 Challenge

30 posts in this topic

This month is a color challenge. I wanted to choose a palette that was bright, cheerful and summery. It's been cold and rainy here for a long time. We are ready for some sunshine. So I went to Design Seeds where there are lots of palettes to choose from. If you're stuck for a color scheme it's a great place to start. You can search by color or collection such as seasons, nature, or lifestyle. The creator of Design Seeds, Jessica Colaluca, says this, "Seeds are created to inspire … you are welcome to apply the color combinations to your designs, art, decor, crafts, weddings, & projects." I found this palette under "summer".June 2017 challenge pallette.jpg

Based on the blue I searched for photos with sky in them. When I found a photo of two of my granddaughters flying a kite in the setting sun which gave their hair a coppery color I knew I could work with these photos using the color palette. I found a paper with similar orange and yellow stripes and tweaked them to work with the palette and then added a color strip and adjusted a tag color. Here's my layout.

I used the Champions technique from this month and recolored the kit to fit the challenge. Busy last couple of months! Glad I was able to get a page done.

June 2017 Challenge (and Champions)

This is wonderful Christine. I have a lot of photos of my grandchildren at historic sites like Old World Wisconsin that could use some excitement. I think a closeup or two of the equipment they used would be a great addition to my pages. Thanks for the inspiration and thanks for joining the challenge.
