October Table Setting Inspiration Challenge

Post by traveler »

This month, we are taking inspiration from my every day china which we use for dairy meals. This is the Twist Alea collection from Villeroy and Boch. (Have you figured out that this is my favorite company?). It's a mix and match collection with 3 color schemes for each item. Here are couple of images, you can google the collection to find more:
ImageImage

The funny story about this collection is we went to the Canary Islands for vacation a few years ago and the hotel had the same dishes in the restaurant and the lounge. 

This month, there are 3 options for the challenge:
1.Take inspiration from the colors and design on this collection. Let me know what inspired you. This option is open to any type of layouts, cards, tags or other crafts.
2.This collection has each item in 3 different color schemes, just like some paper collections have the same patterned paper in different colors. For this option, create a layout using 3 patterned papers that have the same design in different colors. Include photos of the papers before you used them unless it is really obvious.
3. For this option, create a layout that tells a story about a funny coincidence with someone having the same something as someone else, like my story with the dishes, or 2 people wearing the same dress to an event, etc

Here is my example for option 3, the story about the dishes.

Image

Rules:
1. Since I am posting this so late in October, you have until the end of November to get it done.
2. Up to 3 submissions allowed, but each must be for a different option.
3. Random winner will receive an ACOT $5 GC.
4. Combining is fine. Digital is fine.

I combined with the Oct 2021 My Mood Challenge.

Love the colors and design of this collection! Option 1: colors-shades of green and yellow with white and black, and the design element of squares to create the background and circle punch for border. Thanks for the inspiration!

I took inspiration from the squares outlining the plates and fussy cut squares the squares from patterned paper. I overlapped them and created a boarder on the top and bottom of my photos on the right page of my layout.

I went with Option # 3. True but absolutely crazy story.  I could not even believe it myself.  I mentioned this is my wedding album but once you posted the challenge I thought this deserved its own page.

I did option #1. I took inspiration from the colors and the edge design of the bowls, I used circles instead of squares. I also combined with October's music challenge.
