Creative Scrappers #256

It's reveal day at Creative Scrappers!  Woo hoo!  I think this week's sketch has been the most intimidating sketch I've ever played with.  It definitely got me out of my comfort zone!  Check it out:

I decided to go the rainbow route and create a color wheel.  I created the triangle design on my Cameo and then cut it out.  I used patterned papers and washi tapes behind the cut-outs.  I went crazy with my watercolors and modeling paste on the background.  I didn't really know where I was going when I began this page...I just kept experimenting and went with it.  It wound up being a lot brighter than I first thought, and then I added in touches of black with stamping and a black pen.

Lots of detail going on here...I added in some matching floss and buttons for interest.

I love how the modeling paste is so thin that you can still see the color behind it.

I love mixing washi tapes together!  I had planned on using pop dots to create some height between the decorated triangles and the top piece, but then I decided to just flatten it and add lots of embellishments instead.

Go HERE to see the rest of the team's layouts and to upload yours!  Give this sketch a try...especially if you really want a challenge!

Have a great day!


  1. I really like this bright colors! I think I use them all the time!! They're perfect for kid's photos!! Beautiful page too!

  3. Wow, that sketch is daunting. I love the rainbow effect of your page and the gorgeous watercolors on your background.

  4. Such a fun take on the sketch, Missy! Love the way you mixed the bright colors behind the triangle shapes and added the matching buttons! You would never know you were turned out fabulous! :)

  5. Missy, your layouts always amaze and inspire, and this one is no exception, I love it! You absolutely rocked the sketch, plus made me want to break out and use up a bunch of washi tape. Love this!
