Friday Challenge - Winter Blues

Friday, January 31, 2014

Happy Friday everyone!  Lisa here today to share another Fabulous Friday Challenge!  Our challenge for this Friday is a frosty one using this mood board as inspiration for your project.

Do you have the winter blues? Chase them away with some scrappy time, create a project using this mood board as inspiration for your project. Whether you are inspired by the colors, the pictures or just the overall mood these images and colors portray, get creative and let us know what thing or things from this board inspired you!

For my project, I made a layout combining several lines from the store. I was inspired by the overall Winter theme and the lovely blue hues in creating my layout:

Supplies Used from the Frosted Designs Store:
Echo Park Photo Freedom Volume 2 Paper and Stickers
Fancy Pants Timbergrove Paper and Embellishments
Elle's Studio Everyday Moments Paper and Bits & Pieces
Elle's Studio Love you More

Here is what our Design Team felt inspired to make for this challenge…..

I was inspired by the lower right photo of the mug...reminded me of these photos I had from Christmas.
Products used from the Frosted Designs store:
Fancy Pants Timbergrove - Collection kit (paper & stickers)
Fancy Pants Timbergrove - Die Cut Ephemera
Fancy Pants Timbergrove - Patterned Photo Frames
Fancy Pants Timbergrove - Decorative Bags (brown dot inside frame)

For this challenge I was mostly inspired by the color palette of the board, the dark blues, the tealish greenish blues on the bird and the leaves,the browns from the branches, and the warm pinkish hue from the latern. I also loosely translated other elements such as 'weather' my snow is raindrops and my coffee cup is a photo of my friend's tomatoe-y drink of choice that morning :)

Patterned Paper: Fabscraps, Bella Blvd

I love these colours and blue is my favourite. I used your mood board to inspire me for this layout where I incorporated lots of shades of blue and I also drew inspiration from the photos of nature. These photos were taken during winter, but in South Africa we don't get snow. I was also inspired by a Let's Scrap sketch and tutorial.
