Simple Recipe One

Over on UKS there is a new challenge called Simple Recipes which is "designed as a starting point to kick you off creating your layout". 

The first one had a colour palette of Hot Pink, Stormy Grey and Chocolate Brown.  You could then step it up a gear by using fabrics, lace or netting and two styles of alphabet.  We also had an optional sketch to work form (Optional? Well anyone who know me as a scrapper knows I love a sketch!!)

I dug through my old stash and found some Basic Grey Infuse which fitted the colours and then I grabbed a pile of photos waiting to be scrapped and liked the square one that I had printed off from my Hipstamatic snaps on my phone.  This was taken at a Maroon 5 concert last year.  I decided to record all the concerts I had seen in 2011 (and there were quite a few) and I managed to use the two alphas and also a bit of velvet ric rac.

The finished page - I assure you the page is straight in real life - it's my photography that is wonky!!

The journalling reads I so love going to see a live act.  In 2011 I saw Simple Minds, KT Tunstall, Band of Horses, The Script, Take That and the incredible Maroon 5!

You can join in with Simple Recipes on the 3rd Tuesday of every month over on UKScrappers :)
