A Li'l Bit Feisty: A Scrapbook Layout

A Li'l Bit Feisty:  A Scrapbooking Layout by Alice Scraps Wonderland

I've been working my way through my sister's California Trip album and wedding album with the help of online scrapbooking challenges.  This week I'm sharing with you a layout I created using the Color Stories Inspiration (CSI) challenge  Case File No. 156 and a photo of some super feisty seals at Pier 39. 


Color Stories Inspiration Case File No. 156


Instead of going for my usual shabby chic style, I used a more contemporary style.  One of the clues was triangles and I love every chance I can get to use my Glitz Design doodle rollers.  The Raven giant doodle roller in triangles was perfect for this project.  So the first thing I did to my white cardstock was ink it up with some black triangles.

Then I added a few splatters of color mist and started layering on the papers.  Grey thread
is held down by the photos, enamel dots and chipboard star button.  I wanted to keep my layout mostly in the neutral hues from the challenge color pallet and add the coral and lime green in as little pops of color.

I also added 2 clusters of flowers.  The large flower on the lower right I colored with a mist I mixed up from Marion Smith Design's Color Lab.  That particular color is called Galaxy--and I've never seen another mist like it!  It's mostly a blue-ish grey but in the right light can look a little purple.  The gold flecks pick up on all the different colors and the result is pure gorgeousness!  (On Instagram she told me her son Blake came up with this color!)  If you love color mists this pack of pigments and shimmer are perfect for you.  The kit comes with a recipe card to mix up a whole host of your own color mists or you can come up with your own recipes!

For some finishing touches, I added a die cut arrow, a banner from Basic Grey's Carte Postale collection and a lime green compass sticker.
