3 to Inspire

Hello! Michelle here with this week's "3 to Inspire" challenge!

Your take on this challenge can be a layout or a PL spread and you must include all 3 prompts on your project. This is what I have for you today:

1. Use patterned paper for your background.
2. Add in a bold black. 
3. Create some texture.

Here is my take using the December Main Kit:

Be Happy

For my background I used the super cool yellow ombre patterned paper. I really loved how that one choice made my layout look so different from my other projects. I added in some bold, black in three spots with stickers and a diecut (**Note that I placed them in a visual triangle--an old design rule that really comes in handy when deciding where to place embellishments or pops of color.) Finally, I added in texture in three different ways: by layering the tissue paper under the papers; adding in some drops of gold Color Shine; and finishing my project off with some machine stitching. Here's a close up at the details:

Now it's your turn! Use the three prompts to create your own project, share it with us here in the gallery, and you will be eligible to win a small prize from the CTK Store. Make sure to include the date of the challenge in the title of your gallery submission.  Can't wait to see what you all do!
