Some sample layouts for SDU, featuring Eden's preschool graduation.
First up is the use of four colors (quadratic) using the color wheel as the guide. It also features the use of punches to create the flower embellishments. Papers used are from Basic Grey's Phoebe line and Bazzill solids. The graduated flower punch is Marvy Uchida and brads from my stash.
The second set uses analogous colors from the color wheel. I started with the teal from the background paper(Me & My Big Ideas if I recall correctly) and the solid papers are Bazzill. Peace, love and an attitude of gratitude were computer generated and printed onto Bazzill and cut to create the title, which was also the theme of their graduation. Miscellaneous flowers and a Thicker chipboard hand pointing to Eden signing which I recolored with alcohol ink.
Third, the left side is a monotone layout using blues. I stamped one blue paper with ink a shade darker to create some interest. Again, Bazzill papers, Maya Road journal spot and My Little Yellow Bicycle stickers to embellish. Stamp--Club Scrap, ink, Stampin' Up!. The page next to it uses three colors, three butterflies, three photos, three felt ribbon pieces. Yes, the design tool of using threes. It is actually a pocket page. The program from the graduation is tucked in behind, not really a part of the page but kept as a memory. The patterned paper is Black Market, solid is Bazzill. I forget where I got the felt rick-rack. The felt butterflies are from Oriental Trading. I used an Inksentials white pen to write the journaling, "I thank AKWD for all the great hugs." -Eden Edwardson Oh yeah, I remember now. I didn't have quite enough rick-rack to go across the page three times so it is pieced. Why waste good rick-rack behind photos?
Last is triadic--at least on the right side it is. I set up the color wheel picking the orangy color from the My Little Yellow Bicycle Zinnia line. I then added the purple and green. I used the Slice to cut the letters and Sizzex dies to cut the scalloped circles. I used one of the circles to journal on. On the left is a matching page using more Zinnia paper. The lacy photo mat is actually a journal spot from the line and the chipboard backer with ribbon for Eden's name is really a coaster I cut down and rounded corners on. I happened to notice they were the same colors and voila, an embellishment was born!
