Just Plain Wonderful // 12x12 Layout Share11:00:00 AM
Today, we're heading to the zoo! I visit the zoo way too often and I love all of the animals. This layout in particular features some photos of the majestic tiger. While making this layout, I didn't have a color scheme in mind, but I ended up with this off color combo of red, mustard yellow, and a bright green (and of course gold).
As you can probably tell, this layout has a slight fall theme to it. It's got some deep autumnal colors including the red, mustard, and gold. Although I still don't have season specific photos to scrap yet, there are still ways to use all of these fun color combos year round. I especially like having the freedom to do whatever them I like with zoo photos (this photo seems to have a nature/wild theme to it with the leaves and such).
The background paper is from DCWV as well as the mustard and cork sticker paper I used strips of. The beautiful title is from Amy Tangerine's Thickers. I love how the gold pops off of the deep red background. A creatute as majestic as this deserves a just as majestic title. I started out with these elements, but knew it needed more. Then, I happened upon this journaling card from Elle's Studio and rolled with the punches by adding a few more green bits.
The bottom cluster is built off a base of washi tape from Ikea, a Tim Holtz tiny word sticker, a Michael's brand die cut ticket, an ampersand chipboard piece, and a Recollection's enamel circle. I rarely work with this shade of green, so to have these coordinating things in my stash was a match made in heaven.
Although this layout doesn't have an exactly autumnal color scheme nor does it have autumnal themed photos, it still gives the essence of fall without being overbearing. Do you all like to use color schemes specifically for seasons/holidays or are you a go with the flow type? Let me know & thanks for stopping by!
