Here are the requirements:

  • Create a layout using the challenge colours...aqua, purple and cream, and include at least one piece of WOW chipboard.
  • Post your layout on your blog, then enter your projects via the linky supplied. Be sure to share the actual blog post address, not your home blog address.
  • There will be 2 winners. One voted on by our DT, and a random draw.
  • Remember to go to your local scrap store and grab some WOW chipboard and have a go at this months challenge.
  • Entries close Friday 14 September 2012 at midnight.

Easy peasy, right? 

I must admit, I freaked out a little myself at the colour combo when I saw it.  I have a bit of an aversion to purple, and avoid scrapping with it when ever possible.  However, I remembered I had some gorgeous Basic Grey “What’s Up?”  Papers which pretty much had these colours exactly, so then I relaxed a little…lol..

This is What I came up with:


I actually really love how this turned out, with the balloons and the cogs it has a bit of a steampunky feel to it, which is what I was hoping to achieve.

I have used WOW Altamatz 12x12  Clouds: ALTA026 to apply texture paste to the top of the layout.  I have also added WOW Chipboard WOW1568.  I used Perfect Pearl Powder, mixed with water and painted on to colour them to match my layout.  I also used WOW’s Block Alphabet Lower Case  C1389 in my title, which I painted with Ranger Paint Daubers to add colour.

Here are some close ups:



I love using Perfect Pearls on my chipboard – just look at that subtle lustre, soooooo pretty!

So don’t forget – pop on over to the WOW Blog, and add this brilliant colour challenge to your “to-do” list!  There are some great prizes on offer!
