Scrapbooking with red, aqua and white

scrapbooking colour challenge

The final article in each of the Scrapbook Inspirations Idea Books is based on a colour story each month: a set of colours used for a variety of crafting projects and scrapbook pages to then see the tone they set, creating a mood for the the stories told.

scrapbook page

The first colour combination we featured included red, aqua (or turquoise) and white. Now it’s your turn to take this combination and head to your stash. Make a paper scrapbook page, a digital scrapbook page, a card, a decor project or whatever else comes to mind, as long as it uses red, aqua and white to tell that story.

Post a picture of your project online (in a page gallery or on your blog) and post a link to it in the comments on this post. You can see the details about deadlines and other information for this weekend here.

One randomly chosen entry will win a prize package of red and aqua inks, paints and mists!

Happy crafting!

    Hi Shimelle

    Wow great site. I have often looked at scrapbooking and thought that I would like to try it. I am going to enjoy the weekend and perhaps by the end of it I may be brave enough to try it our for my self

  2. Lizzie Says:

    Well that’s funny… just this morning, I was looking at a couple of layouts I had made – one using pink, aqua & white, the other turquoise, red & white – and thinking that this colour combination works so well and that I should use it again soon!
    I may just have to take up your challenge, Shimelle!

    All aspects of this LO are my own creation except the fonts
    title font is Tropicali Script BTN Bamboo
    journalling font Angelina and reads
    Photograph taken of my sweetheart and me, so long ago, when we first fell in love. It’s dog eared and creased for being kept close to hand taken out of my bag and looked at and remembered

    I don’t have a blog, so everything is on Facebook –
