A Warm and Invigorating Palette at Color Combos Galore

Challenge #175 is live at Color Combos Galore! We have an energizing palette and a Designer's Challenge that will make you feel all warm and cozy!

Here is the page I made, documenting my new favorite tea, Bogart Blend by Leland Tea Company. It is AMAZING and you must try it! I used Picnik to posterize my photo. I had to photograph my layout indoors again, so please pardon the imperfect image.

My layout was inspired by this Sketch #137 from Creative Scrappers:

I just had to use those cute little birds in a teacup from a Webster's Pages paper. I added some Stickles and an orange pearl to the top of the bird's hat.

The dark green threw me at first, and then I decided to add the cardstock circle and found a dark green BasicGrey fabric brad and added some greenery to the flower at the bottom.

Once I added the sparkles to the teacup, I needed more sparkle, so I added some Heidi Swapp bling to the photograph and a jeweled swirl over the lanterns I'd cut out of another Webster's Page paper.

The chipboard piece is from Crate Paper's Restoration collection, and I added some orange pearls. I love trying to mix some older stash with newer stuff, and I used this rub-on and the Making Memories definition sticker that I've had forever.

I love the look of white space, but whenever I try to leave some on my page, it always feels empty. Maybe it's because I scrap 8 x 8 and have to crowd things into such a small space. Anyway, the white space at the top was bothering me, so I added the punched piece at the top with pop dots. I thought it gave the illusion of white space and also added a little canopy to top of my page.

Thank you for looking at my page. Head over to CCG--this week's reveal has got to be one of my favorite yet! We have lots of guest designers from Stash to Treasure, our January sponsor, and be sure to read about the awesome prize up for grabs on the main page.
