New DT Memebers
First up, let's meet some lovely new DT members. We are so happy to have them on our team and can't wait to see what type of creative goodness they come up with.
Check out Debi's blog to see some of her latest creations.
We'd also like to welcome Tammi to the CMS Design Team.
And lets not forget about Valerie...all the way from France.
You can check out their Bio's on our DT page.
We are back with a fabulous challenge this month. It's always interesting to me to try to pick a color combo that I think would interest our audience, but some months there just aren't that many participants. For this term (March - June), Pam and I really tried to mix it up for all of our followers.
We've also done away with the twist. We found that our followers don't like being so restricted with so many requirements, so moving forward, we are back to just providing color inspiration.
With that being said, lets take a look at this month's first challenge...
Deadline for this challenge is
March 15 at midnight EST
We are happy to present our guest designers for the month. They truly create some amazing pieces of art.
Design Team Inspiration
Each challenge, we will be featuring a layout by one of our Design Team members. They will provide step by step instruction on how they made their layout.
This month, we are featuring Caroli.
Hello dear friends of Color Me Scrappy! Today I want to show you how I made my take of current color palette.I love mosaic designs and this time I wanted to use some triangles to create a background. The first step is to choose the papers, I use papers from different collections of Echo Park, American Crafts and Imaginisce. I also used some vellum and this cute little alpha from Lily Bee.
I decided to use these pics from my little girl when she was learning to walk, i think they fit perfectly the color combo!
And now all you have to do is combine different colors and patterns to create the background. As you can see, I also draw some lines on the bottom for my journaling.
Then, I placed some vellum and then a tan color patterned paper. I love the effect of vellum because it adds layers but it let us see the background still.
For completing the tittle I used the alpha from Lily Bee. I love combining different fonts and alphas on my titles.
Finally I used some golden Thickers to finish the title, I think they fit perfectly with the vintage look of the color combo and the pics. Also, because gold is like a basic color for me, haha!
And talking about gold, why not using some gold sequins? I added few here and there, even hid some insidde the vellum, I think they look cute.
Here is the layout all done. I added some more Thickers to indicate the year and that's all, a super quick layout made with scraps of paper, I bet you have tons of inchies waiting for being used ;)
Hope you liked this simple layout and try the triangles idea. Thank you much for visiting us and don't forget to play along with us at the current challenge. Big hugs!
Pam and I are happy to announce that we will be rewarding a monthly prize moving forward. Due to shipping restraints, the prize can only be shipped within the United States.
On the other hand, international participants can be chosen as our DT Favorites. They will be invited back to be guest designers.
