Even More Layouts for Challenges:

Here are my latest creations for more challenges. First is a layout I made for several challenges. For the Dixie Piece's Birthday Bash, the color challenge was orange, tourqouise and pink with a touch of green. For SewScrapSleep's Keep Me In Stitches challenge on, the layout must include hand stitching. For Megan's Complementary Colors challenge on Your Memories By Design, the colors must be the opposite colors on the color wheel. I hand cut and stitched the felt flowers and title mat. I've had the blue plastic textured flowers behind the felt forever so I was really happy to use them. They are hard and feel like a sponge and I don't know what company makes them. They were a RAK from another scrapper YEARS ago. I enjoyed stitching and playing with the felt. I want to do this again. I think it gave the layout a whimsical feel and thought it went well with the picture of the grands. I also love these Magnolia patterned papers from My Minds Eye. They're very bright and cheerful.

This layout was made for Dixie Piece's Birthday Bash's Opposites Attract challenge, ScrapScheme's Scheme 7 challenge and for the Use Your Stash blog's Rub-On challenge. For DP's challenge, the layout had to be made with two opposite colors with only a small amount of one additional accent color and the title had to be two opposite words. For the Use Your Stash Rub-On challenge, the layout had to contain 3 different rub-on shapes or elements. I went with flourishes and the white circle frame by Basic Grey, and a couple of small rub-on flowers.For the ScrapScheme 7 challenge, they have a beautiful black and white leaf patterned dish set to use as inspiration. I used my new Home Accents cartridge to cut the large black flourish and the 3 dandilion looking blooms. I cut the large stem by freehand. Of course, I had to add stitching to my circle DCWV patterned paper mat just because it's one of my favorite techniques. The flourish strip of patterned paper was a scrap piece from an Autumn Leaves kit as well as the rub floral buttons. The polka dot flowers, fabric button, and red brads are by Paper Studio Spare Parts and the red and black alphas are also by Paper Studio. I added just a touch of Queen & Co. black felt lace flowers behind the silk flowers. The white silk flowers were flowers purchased from Walmart. My daughter hates this picture of her but I love how the layout turned out ;)
Hope your day was pleasant and creative ;)
