This is our second challenge over at Scraptivations challenge blog! This one was brought to us by Chloe who chose to challenge us to create something crafty based on this lovely picture! Who wouldn't love a room as fresh, bright (and clean!) as this? I know I would love sleeping or creating in such a place! What inspired me most about this picture was of course, the colors which were so bright and center stage, but secondly the clean crisp lines and then the minimalist feel to the room itself. So for my layout I tried to stick with primarily the lime green and yellow color theme but ended up throwing in a bit of orange/red. I used papers by Echo Park (green dot-Little Boy line) and Sassafrass Lass. I chose to keep the layout simple with clean lines like the pic, thus the more linear, color blocking design to the layout. I also stuck with minimal embellies (pear feltie and small flower from Sassafrass Lass) and a small title for which I used an Echo Park little Boy journal box with letters cut from my cricut for the "you" and "me" and small sticker letters from Making Memories, all keeping with the minimalist vibe I got from this picture. I was also inspired by that adorable rug in the pic, so I based by title on the word "you" found in the rug. The picture is of my niece and nephew from Easter 2009, aren't they adorable and dressed so sweetly in green to go with my color scheme (love it when that happens!) Now it's your turn, hop on over the Scraptivations and play along for a chance to win an AWESOME prize from the Paper Trail! Can't wait to see how you are inspired by this picture!
