This layout is my attempt at the #1 colour challenge for those participating in the September Counterfeit Challenge. My layout, my fourth for the Counterfeit Challenge is a fairly simple layout with not a speck of mixed media in sight. The colour challenge specified using the colours red, gold and purple. This proved difficult for me as I had no purple in my counterfeit collection of papers. I ended up having to rummage through my stash and pull out two purple papers, one which had lots of text and one with a fine white polka dot. I have no idea what brand the papers are as they were purchased in a bag of craft paper scraps from the local market. I cut up the purple text sheet to use the quotes as embellishments on my layout. I also had no red cardstock in my kit and used a piece from my stash for my background.
I decided to go with a simple background made up of different widths of strips of patterned paper. I added some Washi tape in rose gold around three edges of the layout. Then, I mounted my photo on cardstock and added the embellishments, some text and die cuts. It is pretty busy and definitely not a layout I would scraplift but it is one more layout for the album. I did find it challenging using these papers, for the photos I had selected.
