Inspire Me: Paint Color Palette

Hello, Bad Girls!

It’s Rae with you today, sharing a layout I made with the October kit, inspired by a paint color palette that I found on Pinterest. I confess: I am a Pinterest Junkie! I use Pinterest every day- I have thousands of pins including recipes, craft projects, beautiful backyards, dream homes, and paint color palettes! I pin so many of these color palettes- some of them are definitely combinations I want in my house, and others I save just for scrapbooking inspiration. This one is so beautiful, I couldn’t wait to use it:

And, I saw all of these colors in the October kit, so I decided to use it for inspiration for this layout of my littlest man, all dressed up on Kindergarten Graduation Day. I edited the picture to coordinate with the color palette, as that shirt was quite a bright teal.

I printed out a small, wallet sized picture for this layout, so to make sure it was still the focal point, I cut down the blue Websters Pages blue paper, distressed it, and glue it to the Melissa Frances ledger paper. The blue and ephemera/script style paper was a prominent theme in the kit, so I was able to repeat those layers in my paper cluster.

I added some of the 7 Gypsies Architextures stickers (the wood, tin tiles, and the door) to my layers for added interest and dimension as well, mixing in some of the blue and brown/grey tones from the color palette.

I also added in some greys and silver tones by adding the frame that I fussy cut from the 7 Gypsies paper, and a metal heart from my stash on the little tag.

I added the title with some alphas from my stash, that are actually a greenish grey that are from the same line/ collection as the Websters Pages paper I used.

I also made the clock using the Prima Marketing paper clay that was in the kit, and a mould that I already has. I painted it with the ivory Tattered Angels High Impact paint, and then used some silver metallic wax to accent the groove for definition.

I also die cut some leaves from the Websters pages ledger paper, and colored them blue and distressed them.

Thanks for taking the time to check out my project today. I definitely recommend browsing through color palettes on Pinterest for some amazing inspiration!
