August Crate Color Challenge

Hey, everyone!  This past weekend I decided to play along with Crate Paper's August Color Challenge.  The color combo was Linen, Pear Green and Sea Grass Blue.  As soon as I saw the combo, I thought of Crate's older Brook collection and thus this layout was born:

I'm pretty proud of myself for making a 12 x 12 layout.  I feel like it's been forever since I've made a page that size.  I've just gotten so comfortable with the 8.5 x 11 format. 

For the background I used a really neat technique that I found here on Christine Middlecamp's blog.  It's so simple, yet looks so great.  I never would have thought of it on my own.

Enjoy the rest of the work week...thanks for stoping by!

Layout: Patterned Paper: Crate Paper; Cardstock: Bazzill; Twine: My Mind's Eye; Alphas: American Crafts; Punches: Martha Stewart; Paint: Apple Barrel
