VIDEO: Color Theories Series // Green Monochromatic Layout Process

February 17, 2018

Hello friends! It is time for another episode of Color Theories series! This week Cynthia and I are tackling the color green. I went for  a rather simple approach for this layout. Some large "die cuts" are the prominent features. Let's jump right in to the process video. 

I started with a background of bright green cardstock from Colorbox. I've been on a real kick for trying to use up some of my plain cardstock stash lately. This used up a couple sheets to help calm down some of the patterns. 

The main component for this layout are these beautiful palm leaves. I traced and cut them out of my own patterned papers. These patterned papers are from Kathy Davis' Journey 6x6 paper pad. I picked the patterns with the most green color in it since that's the challenge with Color Theories. 

I kept the clustering simple. The cluster to the left of my photo is mainly made out of wood veneer and die cuts. The feather is from Paper Studio and the heart and bird are from Studio Calico. I used a date label from Chatterbox under the photo layers.

As a simple layout, I tried to keep a lot of elements simple including the title. This acrylic piece is from Elle's Studio. I love the quality and dimension of their acrylic pieces and would highly recommend!

I made a similar cluster in the top right of the layout. The long sticker is from Carta Bella and the main event is this adorable cloud flair from The Crafty Pocket. I paired it with another bird wood veneer and a Tim Holtz phrase sticker.

Although simple, this layout still packs a punch with bold color and fun patterns. I hope you enjoyed this week's color theory task! Thanks for stopping by!
