Project - Color Theme : Sincerely

This month's color theme gave me a chance to go through my stash and pull out everything green, green, green – it's my favorite color! There are so many current lines that incorporate different shades and tints of green, and I couldn't be happier about that.

The tricky part about using any color prominently on a layout, however, is that it is easy for that color to overwhelm everything else on the page. So how did I get around that? Firstly, I used black and white photos. Secondly, I worked in lots of neutral colors. Thirdly, I allowed for some white space (green space?) on the layout – plus, I didn't want to completely cover up that amazing corrugated background paper from Amy Tangerine! I also made sure to vary the kinds of greens that I used on the page, which creates a sense of there being some variation in color. The greens range from blue-green to green-yellow.

As much as I enjoyed working with my favorite color, the real thrill from this layout came from the way everything just seemed to converge for me as I worked on it. The journaling is personal, hidden in the Crate Paper envelope – but I don't mind sharing it. Given that it is all about love but is also based on a letter motif, many of the accents I chose relate to love or letters in some way. I've also never created a page based on a dream I had, so this is a first. The words “love you to pieces” on the Elle's Studio patterned paper gave me the idea of creating lovely little pieces. Since a few of the pieces were solid-colored, I stamped and embossed them (with mostly teal and white powder), and worked them back into the mix. The photo mat continues the letter motif. It's actually a vellum envelope, into which I inserted a few more neutral papers with a hint of green. For a little sparkle, I added some gold mist to the title and backed the title with a strip of glitter tape. A few wooden hearts from Freckled Fawn were the finishing touch. I joked in my last video that it's impossible for me to create a page without adding at least one heart, and I guess that's true!

Thanks for looking!
