I took inspiration from this MOODBOARD here:
I was drawn to the two faces on the board: the bold black and white florals on top, and the graphic design on the bottom. I wanted large florals with some graphic lines on my page.
I chose this paper pack from Creative Memories...I cut out a large flower from one page and colored it a little. As a background page, I chose this argyle design. I love the contrast! I wanted color on this page, but I do like the black touches on here. I usually go for the obvious when choosing color. This challenge lead me to create something a little outside of my box, and I love it!
Pixels and Paper Challenge blog inspires you with photos. The photo of September was this one:
I knew I wanted a large yellow flower that was just popping off the page. I actually made a flower similar to the one Grace holds in the photo, but it looked to "cutesy". That's when I found the Scrap Around the World challenge, and my mind went "aha!' The addition of black graphic lines was the key. My page ended up with the serene, grown-up feel I wanted.
