Combo 204

12 August 2011
Here is this week's inspirations board at ColorCombosGalore. I was really excited when I say it especially the designer's challenge which was to use a grid. But when I started creating I got stuck. I finally managed to make two layouts which I don't really like but hubby says they are great so I sent them in. 
Voici le combo de cette semaine de chez COMBOCOLORSGALORE. J'ai aimé le combo et le challenge mais j'ai eu difficile de faire une page. J'en ai fait deux mais je ne suis pas très sure! 
And here are my two layouts:
I cut out 6 squares that I placed on my patterned paper which has a layer of gesso on it. I covered up the bottom and top part and added some glimmer mist. I did some FAUX stitching around to squares, added my photo and then put my embellishments to break up the squares. I added blue and brown thread so soften the edges of the squares.
Pour cette page, j'ai découpé 6 carrés que j'ai placés sur mais page préalablement couverte avec du gesso. J'ai caché une partie du haut et du bas de ma page et j'ai ajouté du glimmer. J'ai essayé de placer les embellissements d'une façon à couper les carrés.



Now this is not the kind of layouts I make but I love changing once in a while. I embossed a grid on my blue bazzill using my scoring board and went along the borders with some white chalk to make the grid pop out a bit. I added die cuts and cut them in half using the top half at the top of my page and the other on the bottom. The embossed grid is subtle but it adds a little extra something to look at. Not my favourite layout but my DH LOVES it.
J'ai embossé ma page bleu avec ma planche à embosser et puis avec de la craie je suis passé sur les bords pour les faire ressortir.  J'ai coupé les die cuts en deux pour pouvoir les utiliser en haut et en bas. L'effet embossé est subtile mais intéressant. Mon mari adore cette page. Moi, bof!



Thanks for looking.

Wow! I love all the texture! And I love that one LO is totally layered and "dirty" and the other is sleek, clean and very graphic. Great LOs!
