Creative Embellishments August challenge is up. Sure hope you'll take time to play along. So many fun things to choose from in the mood palette and the twist to use #hashtags.
This super Lacrosse sports page showcases the use of #hashtags and using the colour yellow from the mood board challenge. I painted the sports hashtags and number 28 with yellow paint... but left the washi tape clusters natural colour. The themed sports papers are from Paper House.
I started this page knowing I was going to use lots of #hashtag sports tags and they would be bright yellow. After pulling some photos I laid out what I thought i'd try on this page? or part of it?
I chose to hand cut octagon shapes out of cork for behind the photos. It still need some more colour to pop the photos off the dark background... so I cut a black strip and a white pennant edge piece.
The background was still too dark so I used a stencil and added it in white modeling paste where the photos wouldn't be covering it.
Now I started gluing thing back down from the back to the front.
I painted the chipboards a fun bright yellow.
All the fun bright yellow #hashtags look great and I added her # to the mix too.
I wanted to add more to the page.. so on the bottom I signo white gel pen doodled the year and also added a chipboard accent.
This close up gives you a great view of the central section where the photos are. It has some great colour, layers and accents to showcase the photos to keep them front and centre.
