"Nine Lives" Layout by DT Nicole

It's Wednesday and we have some wonderful
inspiration to share with you!
Take a look at this fabulous layout DT Nicole created to share with us:
"First of all, let me just say that the Pantone 2014 Fall Colors are all gorgeous. Now the real challenge was to find a collection of papers and/or embellishments to match some of these warm, yet vivid tones. Because I softened up my layout a bit with my usual whitewashing technique, it's as if I have used a little lighter shade of each color chosen, but I assure you... I have tried to stay true to the color palette. The colors I chose are: Cypress, Aurora Red, Misted Yellow, Aluminum and a little touch of Bright Cobalt (in some tiny flowers on the pattern paper). The collection used is DIY Shop by Crate Paper. I absolutely adored working with the sketch - lots of layers to work with and, my favorite, tags! Hopefully you will play along with Sketch challenge #19!"

Here's a look at the sketch and the color palette:

Hello and thank you for stopping by!
 Today's stunning inspiration is the beautiful creation of DT Leila, inspired by our
When I am sad or tired, I need the sea to calm down, to restore the energy. Whenever I'm so or whenever I get the chance, run to him, love to feel the sand feet or even just stay seated listening to the sound that the sea does, it calms me, it makes me happy. 

This is my interpretation of the sketch + some of the colors in the palette proposals.
 I hope you enjoy and are inspired to play with us.

"You, The Sweetest" Layout by DT Dulcinea

Good morning paper crafting friends, thank you for stopping by!
Today's Sketch/Color Palette inspiration is being shared by DT Dulcinea:
"Do you find color challenge scary? I do, sometimes. 
But I love how I can put different colors together and make some unusual – for me - mixing of colors. For this one, I grabbed some material from my stash with mauve mist, misted yellow, royal blue and aluminum (I pulled out some aurora red, but I didn't use it) for this layout about my niece. 
Now, it’s your turn try this color and sketch challenge!"

Have a great weekend and if you have some time to play in your scrap room, why not create a layout inspired by our sketch and color palette! We would love to see how this challenge inspires you!

"Lava Molds" Layout by DT Steffanie

Good morning!   
Today's fabulous inspiration is being shared by our talented DT Steffanie:
Steffanie shared this about her reveal:
"Color challenges can sometimes be intimidating but this large palette gives you a lot to choose from. I gravitated toward the ones found in nature to highlight these photos---cypress, cognac, misted yellow, aurora red (which looks like a deep orange to me), and a tiny splash of royal blue. The blue worked well as it pulled in the blue off the shirt that my youngest was wearing!As for the sketch, I followed pretty closely except that the vertical title just didn't look right to me. After multiple attempts to make it work, I finally changed the placement to horizontal and the rest of my page started falling into place. Moral of the story---don't be afraid to change the sketch to suit your needs or your liking!"

Steffanie has done a fantastic job creating her layout using our October sketch and the colors from the color palette provided for this month's sketch challenge!
