Color Challenge in Depth: Layout by Elena Smoktunova

Hello friends!  It’s Elena Smoktunova here today, with an in depth look at what I did to create the layout featured on the October Color Challenge reveal post. Did you miss it? You can take a look at it here, and see all the fabulous projects my other fellow design team members created for your inspiration. You are going to love them all!

For the challenge reveal, as you might have seen, I created this layout.10682351_770002989731191_2479483770965658397_o

I wanted to make something special with the beautiful and gentle photo. I painted the flowers using this month’s soft palette, and the placement of the colors gives the layout a sense of fluidity and beauty.

I have made a video tutorial which you can find over on the Lindy’s Stamp Gang Channel, where I share the details of how this project came together. I hope you enjoy it!
