Design Team: Fun in the Square

The Design Team were given a challenge this month in the form of a 6" x 6" paper pack, various coloured cardstock, a Tando Creative Mask, paper flowers and some Ranger Alcohol Ink. This is one of the first from Julia. I took Julia out of her 'comfort zone' (colour wise) and gave her some really breathtaking colours to use. She was given really bright colours of Sunflower, Butterscotch, Wave (bright blue), Shamrock and some Dotted Swiss Phoenix! Mix that in with one of the new Basic Grey paper packs (Life of the Party) and you have a heady cocktail of colours and textures to design with! Saying that, she rose to the challenge wonderfully and produced this absolutely gorgeous layout - how stunning! I just love the colour combinations and layout and embellishments.

What Julia has managed to achieve is a glorious mix of all those beautiful colours and produced a fantastic page. I love the stitches effect around the outside of the layout and that has been achieved by using a Tando Creative Mask (Stitches Group) and texture paste. She made the concertina flower and used some elements from her own stash as finishing touches.

To get further information on how Julia achieved this fantastic layout just pop over to her blog here
