Winter Blues And Browns
The holidays have come and gone and now we’re starting a whole new year! Can you guys believe it’s 2019??
The majority of the photos in my stash are taken at sunny beaches, both local and abroad, but I was able to find this snowy photo which seemed fitting for a January layout. It was take in September several years back on the drive home from Yosemite and an unusually early snow storm had just come through the area.
I used blue-gray card stock from Paper Studio’s Affinity card stock stack and used one inch strips of wood print paper from Paper Studio’s Dendrology stack to create an alternating pattern. I finally had an occasion to use my 6 X 6 Altitude stack by Bo Bunny which included the beautiful blue and white snowflake paper used. I used some vellum and metal square frames from JoAnn’s and decorated them with epoxy snowflake charms by Making Memories. Several years back, I bought an enormous mixed bag of buttons from Michael’s and keep finding uses for even the most random buttons, including the cute little deer and hedgehog on this page.
The color palette and winter theme for this page comes from Creative Embellishment’s January Challenge. I was looking for pine cones of some sort in my stash but unfortunately couldn’t find any, but I did utilize some snowflake items I had as well as the wood grain paper. I also based my color theme on the mood board, sticking to blues, bronzes and pink-toned grays.
This layout comes from Let’s Get Sketchy’s January Challenge. This layout was was perfect for the single, landscape photo I had. I embellished further with mini tags by K & Company, adhesive rhinestones and silver coated leaves.
That’s all for this time. I wish you all happy scrapping and a happy new year!
