This is Nikita here and I am sharing my project for the current challenge.
Here we are required to create something that has the word "Love" on it, but not the colours red or pink. At this stage, let me make a clarification. The restriction on the usage of red or pink in only on your craft supplies. If you're using an image (like I am, in this layout) and the picture has some red or pink on it, that'll be alright. Just make sure you use papers and embellishments in other colours!
Now that that's cleared up, let me show you what I made. :)
For the base, I have used a 12"x12" sheet from DCWV's Mixed Media Mambi Collection. The top of this sheet had some pattern that was irresistible.. as in I could not stop myself from stitching along the lines. So I ran my Sew Easy tool over it and just did a simple stitch all along the entire top section of the page.
Below that, I added some banners from left-over PPs and made dash lines with a white gel pen.
Along two of the photos, I tied some black and white twine :)
To the left, I added a cut out of an insta-photo from a Dear Lizzy 12x12 sheet and slid it under one of the pictures. I also used Memory Box's Chloe Stem die on a piece of Craft CS and added them on the layout too..
Then, I took a slightly larger sticker from Echo Park's This & That Graceful 12x12 Collection and added it to the bottom of the page.
On the right, I added another insta-photo from the same Dear Lizzy Page that had "Love" written on it. :)
Below that, on a small pre-printed frame, I made the title of the page using stickers from two Echo Park 12x12 Collection Kits..
1. This & That Graceful
2. For the Record 2 :)
And here's what the complete page looks like..
The leaves and the birds, the dotted circles are all pre-printed and they sort of decided the colour scheme of the page on their own.. I just had to find matching embellishments! ;)
Here are the products used to make this page...
