Citrus Twist has been running a recipe challenge for a while now. Every Saturday you will find a new challenge posted on their blog under the title "3 To Inspire". Your take on this challenge can be a layout or a project life spread and remember that you'll want to include all 3 prompts on your project. I got the chance to host the first challenge of May and here's my challenge layout featuring these three prompts :
- Use numbers
- Use arrows
- Use the colour gold
I take my inspiration from the "3" in the challenge title creating a page with: three horizontal pattern paper bands above my photo, three dominant colours and even the numbers 1-2-3. Based on a simple colour blocking technique, it came together quickly once I printed out the bands and journaling on white cardstock. Initially it is going to be a 6"x8" page but I keep adding gold coloured embellishments to the top. So I ended up matting the design on a 8.5"x11" piece of cardstock with a gold-striped tab off to the side to complete the visual triangle.
If you are looking for some creative push to scrapbook then head on over to the Citrus Twist blog and check out the current and past challenges.
