Color Me Scrappy #15

Through Face Book, I discovered the Color Me Scrappy blog. They have a great color and sketch challenge on their page.

The colors:


And here's the sketch:

I had two pictures I wanted to use, but they are horizontal instead of vertical. I still wanted the grounding to be horizontal though. I used a tag border below my photos as my horizontal grounding. The strip journaling on the sketch was my inspiration for choosing this patterned paper with strips on the side border. It also has a flag banner to bring that rounded element! Perfect paper by Basic Gray!

My results:

For dimension and texture, I added the 14 game piece--it represents JJ's birthday and Danyelle's birthday celebration. I also used Studio Calico tapes, the Happiness bubble, Me and My Big Ideas stones, and a American Crafts gemmed and glittered flower. This was a really fun challenge! I didn't really know how I was going to scrap these photos, but the inspiration led the way!
