Great video. I like the idea of mixing all the colors and really learned some things. Thanks.
That photo would have scared me. I was initially surprised when you went for a floral patterned paper, but it worked and I learned something from your selection of the patterned paper. I also liked your choice of color palette. I probably would have went with pink like another scrapper mentioned. And, I would have had a scrapping grandmother meltdown moment had my grandchildren came to Easter in browns and oranges. LOL! Learned alot today! Thanks Glitter Girl!
Thank you for the tip on the distress inks for hand drawn stamps.
Thanks for sharing!
I love Glitter Girl too! Her classes are also very, very worthwhile! I also wanted to second Glitter Girl's recommendation to take Amy Heller's class on Color theory. Even though I had taken some design courses in university (quite a long time ago), I learned so much and I look at color in a whole new way.
The pink 'FLOWER' also stopped the focus being mainly on the women on the far left. As she was in the bright pink, my eye kept gravitating towards her.

This week Glitter Girl covers a few ideas for working with colours other than choosing them directly from your photograph, especially with group photos, inspired by this thread [twopeasinabucket.com] on the General Scrapping board. There are many, many ways to choose colours beyond matching them to what's in the picture, so her adventure this week is just a brief look at one way to make that work. For an in-depth study of colour in scrapbooking, check out Amy Heller's Kaleidscope workshop linked in the supply list below. It covers so much ground on using colour beautifully in unique ways.
Come along for the adventure, won't you?

This week Glitter Girl challenges you to think carefully about your colour choices as you work on your next layout, then share it with us in the gallery and in your layout description, tell us how you came up with that particular colour combination! Be sure to check the box for the challenge in step four of the uploading process.
As always, Glitter Girl is out to save the world, one crafty dilemma at a time. If you have a scrapbooking dilemma she could solve, be sure to start a new discussion on the General Scrapbooking message board here at Two Peas, and your dilemma might be the very next adventure - a new scrapbooking video here every Wednesday.
