Back to school fashion

I’m sharing another GCD Studios project today. 🙂

My color inspiration layout for this month came from this beautiful outdoor place setting.

I thought it was a fresh mix of colors and not a combination I would have chosen naturally.  But as luck would have it, it turned out to be the perfect color combination for my daughter’s back to school photo this year.

To create the page, I began pulling out all my GCD Studios papers and embellishments that were in the color palette and fit the theme of my page. After that, the page just came together rather quickly.

As I often do, I created a portion of my title on a little chipboard plaque.  I like how it keeps the title from floating on the page. I just love all the different styles of plaques by GCD Studios. I really could find a use for them on every page I make.

I try to keep the colors fairly evenly dispersed around the page to create a sense of balance. The metal rimmed glass brads are perfect for spreading that perfect little hint of color.  Love them!

Here’s another look.

Patterned Papers: GCD Studios Soul Food, GCD Studios Animal Crackers for Girls, Studio Calico
Embellishments: GCD Studios Soul Food border strips, chipboard word plaques, metal rimmed glass brads, metal rimmed clips, inspiration card.
Transparency: Hambly; Letters: American Crafts and Basic Grey

One last thing, be sure to enter the Giveaway for this month’s kit!! You can find the entry post here.

I’m looking forward to creating some layouts with this kit this month!! 🙂

    This is an adorable back to school layout! Love all the details (contacts, hair straightening) — someday she'll be sitting around in glasses with wavy hair thinking "I remember those days!!" LOL
