PPC#78 Cup, Litre, Gallon Colour Challenge

So I guess it should come as no surprise that after starting my paper crafting classes up again just this week, I’m putting my teacher shoes on again for my Scrapbooker’s Paradise design team challenge today. I’m calling this a “Cup, Litre, Gallon” challenge, and it’s an exercise in using colour effectively in design.

I tried to use lots of stamping – it’s an easy way to create your own colour-coordinated accents and embellishments. The patterned paper is Teresa Collins Fabrications which just happens to be the prize for this week’s challenge as well!

The photo in this layout is my mom and her brother the day we took a walk to the top of the Peace River hill from my grandparent’s house. This is a favourite family walk and it was a good day. I love living in the Peace River country; from my house it’s a half hour’s drive away and we have many favourite spots along the river, depending on whether we’re hiking, camping, mudding or berry picking. I hope you’ll consider playing along with the challenge and letting me know your favourite colour strategies (visit the blog to do my “lesson”) and remember that I mentioned earlier putting on my “teacher shoes.” I am very distracted as I post, drooling over a new shoe company that I found online, Irregular Choice. Look at these beauties!

Okay, they’re not really teacher shoes, I suppose. But they are wonderful! Have a great long weekend!

    Thank You for this lesson Angela, I am sure you will have made many things clear for those of us who struggle with the measures. Love the shoes, I can imagine they are just what you need to teach. I also love the ‘hot mess’ quote. Keep smiling and creating

    Thanks for the tutorial! Got me thinking outside the box… lol, it was a long process though, but I got the idea. For sure will use the measurement again.

    Hi Angela,

    Thanks so much for visiting my blog and leaving a comment – I followed you back here and so glad I did as I enjoyed your gorgeous layout and your tutorial. Every time I visit you I get ITCHING to break out the watercolors again… haha, let me know if you ever want to do a dual-post together with something watercolor in theme – I can do that digitally or “real” and could offer a giveaway of some type and we could link to each other perhaps.

    Hope your BC day is relaxing for you too!
