The colors selected for this week’s challenge are perfect for this time of the year: Old Olive, More Mustard and Bravo Burgundy. Rich with the hues of Fall, these colors naturally and beautifully complement each other.
As I sat down to create a beautiful project with these colors, I was initially drawn to Fall leaves and Thanksgiving themes, but I decided to go with a design that’s universal to any time of year.
Tips, Tricks and Reminders:
- Easy Accents. I’ve been on a “draw lines” kick lately – I haven’t done it a lot, but I think about it with almost every project. I really enjoy how such a simple addition can make such a great accent to a project. In this project, I grabbed my Old Olive Stampin’ Write Marker and a scrap piece of card stock to create three simple lines on the Very Vanilla card stock. I cropped the sentiment with a Window Frames Collection Framelit and then repeated the three lines on the piece of Very Vanilla card stock beneath the framelit images.
- Don’t toss that Halloween DSP just yet! When I was searching for a patterned paper to highlight the frames, I went straight to the More Mustard gingham design in Orchard Harvest. As I was flipping through my DSP stash, though, I realized there’s a beautiful, More Mustard houndstooth pattern in Howlstooth & Scaringbone. Last I read, there’s no rule that requires this paper be used before October 31.
