MMC June 17 Challenge #2 *WINNER*

Post by Art_Teacher » Mon Jun 17, 2019 12:14 pm

I love how all these layouts look! :)  Randomly drawn winner for a little prize goody is pawprints!  PM me your addy so I can send your prize.

This challenge is a mood board challenge combined with a color challenge.  So, you need to get inspired by the photos here and use the color scheme of orange and grey. I don't particularly like orange and I rarely use it, but I kind of like how it pops against the grey!  It is reminding me of our current weather...grey, rainy, with pops of summer sun and flowers. lol  Choose at least 3 elements from the photos to inspire you, as well as the colors.  You may use other neutrals, white, black, brown, and any shades of orange, but no other colors, except in your photos.

Image

Upload your layout to the gallery spot provided by midnight on Monday, June 24th to be entered in the prize drawing.  Must be a new layout. Can NOT be combined with other challenges.

I really like this color combo.  I have several old Basic Grey lines that come to mind... and of course, Halloween, my favorite holiday.

You just reminded me about that Basic Grey!  I have some of that too from eons ago.

The fact that I have a flame point (orange) Siamese and a lilac point (gray) Siamese makes me feel like I'm cheating....

I have already started this one. I love orange!!! I'm working on Sept 2010 photos I've printed and there are some random everyday pics I am going to put together on a page. So...why not orange & gray? :greenwinkb:  
Happy Scrapping!

What a cool mood board! It made me immediately think of Halloween so I did a Halloween layout.

The 3 elements in the photos that inspired me were:
1. The small child (I used a pic of Maddie at 2 years old)
2. The cat (she is wearing a Halloween shirt with a black cat on it plus I used a black cat sticker)
3. The orange stitching on gray (which I used in two areas on my layout).

Very fun challenge!

While looking thru my photos I spotted these. My GGD dressed in orange and the play area is gray. Perfect.
I used stitching, bird, automobile - and my photos are of a child's face, too.

The hearts look more red in the picture, but they are really a dark orange

And here it is! I had to do some "creative censoring" because I didn't think Dh would appreciate being in his underwear in the scrapbook / online LOL! DD used to like to "dance on your feet" when he was getting ready for work. 

Aside from the colors of gray and orange, I was inspired by the stitching in the top left pic, the silver on the car, and the words. I stitched little gray arrows, I used silver washi and brads, and used word bg paper and the acetate thingy.

I love that orange and grey. That color scheme has not made it onto my radar before. Now I won't be able to stop thinking about it.

Great challenge! I love the orange and grey together.  I used the bird, orange flowers on white strings, and white lettering.

I just noticed that the grey is reading as blue, but I definitely used grey on this.

Here is mine.  It also qualifies for this week's MMC challenge #3 too since I used 7 different PP's, but since there is no combining, I'm going to put it here because my initial inspiration was the color combo.  I have to admit my other inspirational items from the mood board were after-the-fact, but they are stitching, white journaling, circles, and wings. 
Image

More importantly, I want to give credit to my other huge inspiration, this layout by Janice D. P. that I lifted:

Here is my take. I used the bird (it's in the black pp), the cat (picture) and the wood grain.  I also liked the contrast of the different oranges in the flowers. Sorry about the dark photo. I need to take a better picture in the morning!
