YOU ROCK | You Rock & Totally Rad layout | Sue Plumb

Hi everyone! Sue Plumb here today to share my latest design team project with you. This week the team has a brand new theme they are focusing on – ‘All About Colour’. Colour is such an integral part of creating, and the colour choices you make for your layout design can help influence the mood or theme you want to convey.

For this page, I wanted to document this cute photo of my boys, so I allowed my colour choices to be dictated by the photo.

You can see that I selected the blue as my main tone; followed by the complimentary lime green; then some small pops of red as the accent colour. I used elements from the ‘You Rock’ and ‘Totally Rad’ boy collections for this page to achieve the combination of colours I was after.

I started with the ‘Stellar’ paper from Totally Rad, and applied some blue watercolour paint with a small brush to define the focal area of my page. I held my page vertically whilst doing so, which allowed the excess paint to run down the page. I then added some blue mist splatters to the same area and allowed it to dry.

Once dry, I cut the background paper down to measure approx 11×11″ and then adhered it to the B side of the ‘Galactic’ paper from the ‘You Rock’ collection to form a border. I then used more of the ‘Galactic’ paper to mat under my photo, and added an extra layer with the lime striped ‘Mix Tape’ paper from ‘Totally Rad’ and some frayed gauze and messy lime green thread for texture.

I then began embellishing around my photo, using pieces from the die cut ephemera packs from each collection; along with some fussy cut stars from the ‘Starshine’ paper to create clusters. I complimented each of the clusters with some ‘Totally Rad’ enamel shapes and added one of the ‘You Rock’ flair buttons to the one at the top.

I used one of the large ‘You Rock’ wood veneer shapes as my title, and coloured it using a Posca pen so that it would pop from the page. I then stamped the date and added a few more mist splatters around my page and I was finished.

Thanks so much for stopping by today so I could share this with you. I hope the team will inspire you this week to break out all those gorgeous bold colours in your stash and get creating with them!

Until next time, happy scrapping!

About the Author:

Sue is a stay at home mum of 3 (daughter Brielle, 8 and twin sons Hunter and Kaden, 3) and lives in the beautiful Glasshouse Mountains in Queensland. Sue has been scrapping for approximately 8 years, having started shortly after her daughter was born. After the premature birth of her sons, she took 18 months off scrapping to concentrate on family and since her return says she is enjoying it more than ever. (Her biggest issue now is finding quiet time!) She currently designs for challenge blogs, and has had work published in scrapbooking magazines on numerous occasions, including the cover. Although primarily a 12×12 scrapper, she says she loves to dabble a bit with pocket style scrapping, art journaling, and the odd canvas and card too. She best describes her style as "versatile" - ranging from clean and linear one day, to messy mixed media the next.

    Inspiring me to use my mixed media like that instead of just sprinkles droplets of it 😊
