Challenge # 89 - Week of May 6th 2013

Whoa! Hey there. We are already in May. Crazy how fast this year is flying by... Happy National Scrapbooking day, y'all.

But you didn't come here to hear about my year. We are here for scrapbooking challenges with a whimsical twist. And because I know a lot of you are probably participating in LOAD or NSD challenges around the web I decided to keep the challenge simple so you can incorporate this into other projects you may be working on.

So - your challenge this week is to use tone on tone on your layouts. And I found some examples from my own arsenal to share with you and get you started on some ideas

* use tone-on-tone die cuts over paper strips of the same color family

* use tone-on-tone by stamping designs with same color ink as paper

* use tone-on-tone with lots of buttons over a painted strip on your paper - through in some tone-on-tone brads and embellishments for extra whimsy
*add tone-on-tone strips and scraps of the same cardstock over your background to create interest and texture without compromising white space

I hope this has given you a starting point for your layout. I can't wait to see what you come up with. Remember to add it to our gallery with the tag WM#89.



  1. Ha ha. My layout from the last challenge would have been good for this. There was lots of red on red. Will have to see which kit works for this.

  2. So good to see "the good life" again. The first time I saw it was on flkr during my first LOAD. I fell head of heals in love with your design sense and personal style. Oh those colours!
