UDI Saturday Sketch Challenge

And a scary one at that.  Well the sketch wasn’t scary, just the challenge that went along with it.

USE OUR LEAST FAVOURITE COLOURS  eeeeeeeekkkkkkkk!!!!!!

GULP!!  so I probably don’t use Really Rust alot, infact almost never, so you could say that it’s a least favourite of mine.  I pulled some colours from the wheel to go with it and got Bordering Blue (another colour I don’t use), Mellow Moss and Vanilla.

So then I pulled out the photo from the other, and the colours seemed to work well with the photo.  But I’m thinking I should have used the Bordering Blue as the base of the layout instead of the Really Rust.

And of course I’m not really happy with it as I really don’t use these colours.


Layout Recipe:

  • Stamp Set: Enjoy every moment
  • Card: Really Rust, Bordering Blue, Very Vanilla
  • Ink: Really Rust, Bordering Blue, Always Artichoke
  • Other: Filagree Brads, Always Artichoke Ribbon, Sponge Daubers, Markers

hmmmm, I don’t think I’ve done my photo justice.

  1. Alisa, this is a lovely page and I love the colour combination. I do understand your personal dissatisfaction though (I have many of those pages!) and like Jo said, you can re-scrap. Maybe swap the Rust and Bordering Blue around as you mention? xx

  2. What a sweet page Alisa!!! I love how you used the sketch to make a layout and that picture is totally awesome!! I do love the colors you used, I use Really Rust all the time. Isn’t it weird how some like certain colors that others don’t?? Well I love your page!!

  3. It’s a very cute page! I like how you’ve used the filigree brad with the ribbon – hadn’t thought of that 😀 I’d love my ‘good’ pages to look as great as your ‘not so sure’ page, lol.

  4. Alisa, This is a sweet page, and I think does the photo justice – the colours relate really well to the colours of the photo. However, I know how it feels to not be happy with the finished product – so, if you really aren’t happy with it, put it aside, and re-scrap the page – there is no rule to say that you can’t, is there? Cheers, Jo
    PS – it was a very difficult challenge.
