Adorable - CREATE magazine - Teresa Collins

I am delighted to be part of Scrapbook Generation's CREATE magazine design team.  The May edition of CREATE has just gone live. Click here to read and/or download CREATE.  This month is a bumper edition of 245 pages...and I have three layouts published in the magazine.  

The first layout I want to share with you was for the colour challenge this month.  This was the inpiration photo:

Here is my page:

 Supply list:  Cardstock:  Bazzill; Patterned papers:  Teresa Collins (Everyday Moments), Wood arrows: Studio Calico; Chipboard circle and title: Blue Fern Studios; Brads and word stickers: Teresa Collins (Everyday Moments); Stamps:  Prima stitched circles and Prima stitched rectangles; Floss: DMC Cotton, Background:  PanPastels; Chipboard circle colored with Gelatos.

Some close ups:

Initially I left the background white...but it was just as if something was missing.  I then used my PanPastels around the edges of the page and then stenciled some blue PanPastel through a Crafters Workshop Stencil.

It was difficult working on the background of a completed layout...but the result was worth it.

As a final touch I added the stitching stamp around the edges and some circle stitching stamps here and there.

Thank you for visiting.  I will be sharing the page I made based on the May card sketch as well as the two page layout I made for the Questions and Answers layout.
