Mad March Competition – Round 5

March 29, 2012 Sarah Coggins

This was one of those layouts that went a lot of directions before it was complete. I’m really happy with the end result. Not sure I would have come to this conclusion without the Round 5 challenge.

The requirements:

  1. Use an action on your photo – Totally Rad’s Bitchin’ B&W
  2. Use an inspiration piece from Pinterest to start your page – this gallery wall
  3. Do your journaling in list format – check
  4. Blend a number into the background paper – blended a grouping of numbers from Digi Essentials 4 by Karla Dudley.
  5. Recolor an element – I recolored several! Dots paper by Robyn Meierotto and Lacey paper by Celeste Knight, both from DHD’s DSD 2011 collaboration. Zig zag stitches from In Stitches – Bright Basics by Robyn Meierotto. Plaid Heart from I Love Boys by Robyn Meierotto.
  6. Make a 2-D element 3-D – Plaid Heart. Added stronger shadow than other elements and warped it.
  7. Create your own word art using one alpha and one font – Title. Used Edwardian Script for ‘5’ and Mellow Alpha by Robyn Meierotto.
  8. Use stripes, polka dots & floral patterned paper – Pinstripe Grey by Deena Rutter, Dots (recolored) by Robyn Meierotto and Lacey (recolored) by Celeste Knight all from DHD’s DSD 2011 collaborative.
  9. Use only 3 colors: Black, White & your choice – kraft/tan/brown.
  10. Use only black & white photos – check
  11. Use something from one of our free kits – Pinstripe Grey by Deena Rutter, Dots (recolored) by Robyn Meierotto and Lacey (recolored) by Celeste Knight all from DHD’s DSD 2011 collaborative.
  12. Subject: Favorites – 5 favorites of Dylan’s at age 2.5
  13. Use staples on your layout – clipping heart to page. From Nursery Rhymes by Sara Schmutz
