Good morning, dear Maja Friends, welcome to the blog today 🙂
As I think it’s quite beneficial for both personal and creative development, from time to time I decide to step outside my comfort zone and try something I haven’t tried yet or I don’t like. And today I bring you the result for the latter: a layout featuring my not-so-favourite colour palette of orange paired with purple.
For this self-challenge I used a photo of my goddaughter taken soon after she was born. I used the Little Street Cafe collection that offers some beautiful orange patterns and eased the pain with a bit of purple and kraft brown. The photo has a rustic feel, so I added a tag cut out of burlap paper, but added a gold filigree panel to relate to the title too 🙂
I also added a couple more of tags and a lot of flowers to decorate the photo, as well as a guardian angel to protect the baby 🙂
The title is arranged with cardboard letters that together with a clock button add to the rustic climate:
Apart from the gold panel, there are some opalescent sequins to add glam on the other hand:
Although it’s not my colour combo of voluntary choice, I still like the way the page turned out. What do you think?
Here’s what I used:
