We have our fifth and final challenge for the month up over at Lasting Memories today. Our theme for August has been "The Adult Coloring Trend", and this week our challenge is a photo color inspiration challenge. Use the photo below for color inspiration on your layout.
I love the pretty colors in that inspiration photo! The pinks, the oranges, and the greens...just so pretty. I was having trouble finding any photos that I thought went with this color scheme, so I decided to pick my papers first, then see what photos I could find to match the papers. I pulled papers from a variety of manufacturers - Dear Lizzy, Crate Paper, Amy Tangerine, and Chickaniddy Crafts.
This is not my normal process. I almost always start with my photos and then pick my papers. It was really fun to change things up this time around. I probably would have never pulled these papers if I had picked my photos first, but I kinda really like the way this layout turned out!
I searched my Pinterest boards for a two photo sketch and decided to go with this older sketch from PageMaps. I flipped the sketch to work with my photos a little better, and I moved the title to under the photos. I will add a little bit of journaling, maybe around the banner piece, or hidden behind the photos on a tag. I had taken a lot of photos from this day, so not sure which story I want these photos to tell just yet. I just know that this was a beautiful summer day spent with my family, and life can't get much better than that!
Be sure to stop by the Lasting Memories blog to see the beautiful layouts from the rest of the design team. You have until September 2nd to play along!
