VIDEO: Color Theories - Orange // 12x12 Layout Process Video

May 06, 2017

Happy International Scrapbooking Day! I hope you all get to get crafty at some point this weekend! It's important that you make time to be creative in whatever form you like best, not just on special days. Today, I am bringing you a new Color Theories lesson! This week as you can tell, is all about orange. Orange is not my favorite color, but it is the color of the college I attend.

The story for this page is actually from a very impulsive series of events. I go to a school that is huge on hockey. Throughout my time here, I haven't attended a ton of games, but I wanted to change that. So, my boyfriend and I went to three hockey games in one weekend. There was one Friday, one Saturday, and one Sunday and we attended them all. It was fun and I wanted to document them all on one page. So, let's jump into my process video and then check out Ariana from The Crafty Ways video!

I got to use some amazing products on this page from a variety of manufacturers. I tend to like to mix and match lines like I did here because it makes me feel even more creative. If you want to mix and match collections a great way to start is by doing a monochromatic layout like these ones that we are showing you through this series. As you see in the beginning of the video, I start by pulling out a bunch of orange products to get my mind open to what I have available to me. This is a great way to get started.

Once I had everything pulled out, I started making cuts. Some of the black papers I pulled out weren't the same shade of black which bothered me, so I put those ones aside. Then, I took a sketch from the Spiegel Mom Scraps iNSD Instagram challenge. I drew a lot of inspiration from that sketch to do this layout which really guided me.

I really love the way this came together. Although this is also a Halloween like color scheme since there aren't any ghouls or goblins, it doesn't give any of those vibes. My main point on all of my layouts is to play with textures. It is the part that I love the absolute most!

Thank you all so much for stopping by! Don't forget to watch Ariana's lovely video! Be sure to check Instagram for all of the fun challenges put on by Spiegel Mom Scraps and Wild Whisper. Happy crafting!
