Love to Ride

I'd like to share a layout I made for Color Combos Galore #237
using the beautiful sketch from  Let's Get Sketchy March week 3 
( it was turned 90 degree here)
The photo was taken five years ago, Natalie's first time on a train when we
traveled in Taiwan. She was very excited.
On this layout, the background was misted with Heidi Swapp color shine
and stencil. I used Hero Art texture stamp to distress the corners and edges.
The letters "LOVE" were designed and cut with Cameo. Here are the
inspiration from the CCG #237 inspiration board:
 
Inspiration Photo #1/Focus on Tools: Die Cutting
Other Inspiration:
Inspiration Photo #2: block stickers (idea: lettering) ;
Inspiration Photo #3: misting with a stencil (idea: wall art) ; 
Inspiration Photo #4: string (idea: mobile)
 
 Thank you for looking and hope you'll play along with us this fun challenge.
Have a great day! ^_^

Hi,friends. Happy Saturday!
This week the challenge at Our Creative Corner is an
 analogous color combo hosted by our talented designer Sue Bulter.
Sue challenges us to create a project that is SQUARE and must only use
ANALOGOUS  COLOURS in your design. These colours are in close
proximity to each other on the colour wheel that share similar hue and s
aturation. You can use Black, Gray or White as your accent colour.

I've picked the red, orange and yellow shade colors and made a 12" X 12"
scrapbook layout. Here is what I came up with.
The sketch I used here is from Let"s Get Sketcy March Week 2.
 
Please check our DT's blogs for more inspiration
about this week's challenge.
 
Thank you for stopping by. Hope you have a nice weekend.
