White ... With 1 August Reveal
Hey there crafty peeps,
Thanks for stopping in today for the White ... With 1 August colour reveal and my layout for the month.
The colour of the month is the complete opposite to our winter skies, it is Sunny Yellow!
August also comes with a sketch to use, but it is not compulsory to use it to enter the challenge.
I found it really helpful to use the sketch this month, as yellow is not a favourite colour of mine to scrap with, and therefore not having to come up with a design was great. I flipped the sketch so that my subject was looking toward the centre of the page and not off it. Otherwise everything else pretty much follows the sketch.
It was great to be able to use up a whole bunch of machinery ephemera that was in my stash, and they were all actually yellow!
I added some of them under vellum for a softer touch, and the vellum was yellow too!
I did a little embellishment cluster in place of the journaling spot on the sketch. I did a line of journaling across the bottom of the page instead.
Lots of layers of yellow, and some of white.
I did add one embellishment that wasn't yellow or white - this orange/ red Give Way sign. I added it because in both photos you can see orange barriers and that colour was no where else on the page and it just didn't look right. Also, it has been in my stash for years and this is the first real opportunity I have had to use it and I am unlikely to have another to be honest!!!
Thanks for stopping in today. If you would like to play along with the White ... With 1 August challenge using Sunny Yellow, hop on over to the White .. With 1 blog and check out the rules (they're pretty simple - basically, use 70% white plus the colour of the month, and don't combine it with any other challenges. And please include your name and country when uploading your entry.)
I took an impromptu month off doing blog posts (after 1.5 - 2 years of weekly posts), but I am sitting down today and scheduling a whole bunch, so there will be regular weekly posts again if you are wanting to see anything else I create. I did take a break from scrapping for a bit there, and then with inspiration from Pinterest and YouTube I got back into it.
So, see you next week!
