I've been scrapbooking for 12 years now (it really doesn't seem that long) and in that time I've acquired enough patterned papers and embellishments to re-decorate a medium sized village, twice!
I was taking some photos for a colour palette challenge over on the Claire Salisbury Studios Blog (my surface pattern design, illustration and home decor blog) when I had a ligtbulb moment and decided to use the colour palette to inspire a scrapbook layout.
So this is the colour palette I put together...
I love the colours of the evening sky, they always catch my attention, I've got so many pink and lilac sky photos on my phone.
I decided to give it a go and gathered all of my supplies that matched the colour scheme, I also discovered something astonishing...
I do not have any lilac or lavender coloured patterned papers or card ***face of shock***
How have I survived until now?!
Due to my lack of lilac/lavender coloured supplies I mostly used the pink and grey tones from the colour palette for this scrapbook layout.
I'm going to be posting a new colour palette challenge on the second Thursday every month on both this blog and the studios blog, it's just for fun (and to reduce the amount of patterned paper I'm surrounded by) and I'd love it if you play along, whether it's a card, a scrapbook page, an illustration, even a crochet blanket (there's no deadline!) Be sure to either comment on here or you can tag me on Facebook and Instagram as I'd love to see what you create.
You can also use the hashtag #colourpalettechallenge across social media.
This is the photo I was taking when I had the idea to use the colour palettes as a scrapbook stash busting challenge too...
That's all from me for now, I'll be back soon
