Challenge 52

Just one challenge for the month as i messed up the times.....this working lark and scrapping is quite hard work!!

So here it is for you and some awesome inspiration from the team!!!
1. monochrome (so different shades of orange)
2. use buttons
3. use 3 photos
4. white paint (or equivalent)
5. sewing
6. ORANGE pic:


I do love monochromatic challenges. And I do love orange. And white paint, and mess. The little buttons are actually cardboard that been left over when folding hundreds of pizza boxed for sending of my kits....

For some reason my orange looks more pinkish????  This layout was a lot of fun to make!  I used lots of Scrap Fx, and Gauche Alchemy products, as well as some tape from a cassett (inspired by the pic of course)!  Unlike Marie, I'm not much of an orange person when it comes to layouts...but thankfully...I really like it on this page!

I loved being able to raid my button box for a specific colour for this challenge. My stitching is on the buttons, white gesso brushed on orange cardstock and oversprayed with Golden Fish mist.


Orange - a lovely warm colour which suits well for the first official month of autumn.
It's bold attention, great feeling and experience of adventure during a visit at the theatre (with act one - not act three...) and yes, this makes me happy.


I love orange,it gives me a warm feeling and it is the colour of my country...:)

So orange was really challenging for me. Especially in monochrome. I swear this looks more orange in real life, though I did lean towards the brownish orange. However I absolutely love how it turned out. I had so much fun getting my fingers dirty again!!

Link up on the side bar (with the august challenges) for a chance to win an amazing scrappy kit!!! :) 

ps. if you're still waiting on prizes etc don't worry (my scrap room is a mess and i'm sorting them as i go...including working full time and being a full time mum....just bear with me as i haven't forgotten!! :) 

Can't wait to see what you create :) 
Nat and the rebels!!
