September 2014 Fashion Challenge - WINNER!

Post by blbabe1234 » Fri Sep 05, 2014 6:19 pm

We all have heard the fashion rule: No White After Labor Day! Well, you know what I have to say that? Wear white whenever you want!

So for this month, I'd like you to use a white background, and pick one other color to pair it with. You can go pastel, or you can go bright. Its totally up to you. And, polish off that layout with a metallic! Gold, silver, bronze, copper! Just pick one!

Here is my example, featuring my sweet little girl Penny Lane:

Image

I used lilac as my color to use, which I pulled from the comforter that is in the photos. My metallic is silver.

To recap, here are the rules:
  • Background MUST be WHITE
  • Pick ONE more color, along with ONE metallic
  • You may combine with one other September Challenge
  • Multiple entries are okay
  • Open to all mediums - paper layout, digi layouts, crafts, cards
  • Due October 5th, at 11:59PM CST
  • Random winner will be selected using Random.org. Prize is ACOT GC!
Have fun! If you have any questions - just ask!Image

Love the sample LO Brandy!

I also love this challenge, vow renewal tomorrow and the them is white and gold. So mixing in a color will be easy peasy and I'll get some of the photos scrap at my end of the month retreat. :) yay!

First of all, welcome back!!!!! Now, I am telling you, this will be a real challenge for me. I am not fond of, nor does it come easy to use white, lots of white. I will give this a lot of thought, lol.

Thank you Kim! Image I had alot of fun with this one. I spent most of Wed night looking thru my stash to see what I had in the silver and lilac dept. Those flower sequins have been in my stash forever, so its nice to see them on a layout and out of my stash!

Here's mine. This was a perfect challenge for the second set of pages of Maddie's first New Year for her first holidays album. I chose to pair my white background with red and chose gold for my metallic. Fun challenge Brandy!

Here is my submission for the Fashion Challenge and the Hands On Challenge.
I used green for my color and metallic letters and pen, There is also glitter in the stickers. I had to add the yellow bearded dragon stickers to complete the LO.
thank for the challenge.
