Hi! Sarah here with a layout using July's Daily Diary kit. This week we were challenged to play with color. We could either do a layout using a monochromatic or a rainbow color scheme. I chose to do a monochromatic and using blues for this swimming themed layout.
I really loved pulling all of the blues out from this kit and making this layout. The only thing I struggled with was papers because I have the Daily Diary kit, so many of the smaller papers didn't work for this one. I did pull two extra paper scraps from my stash (the floral and the geometric behind the photo along with the cardstock).
I LOVE these Thickers in the kit! I love the color and that they're ombre. I pulled some smaller mini market alphas from October Afternoon from my kit since I didn't want to use up all of the "S" in the Thickers pack. I might be hoarding them! I used a piece from the Pebbles cut apart sheet to hold my title and it was perfect since it was a pool.
I had to use the sea horse die cut because my older daughter's swim group was called the Sea Horses. It was orginially an orange-coral color. So to make it work with this layout, I sprayed it with some Heidi Swapp Color Shine in the color Ocean. It took the color nicely and make it work for my monochromatic theme. The "Hello" is cut from a Project Life card from the kit.
I pulled three flair badges from my stash in different shades of blue just to add some height and dimension. I finished the layout off with the bingo card, stickers and puffy word tiles, all from the kit.
I hope you enjoyed this and I hope you will take one the color challenge with us! Please share all of your layouts in the Facebook group, we'd love to see them!
