Colorchallengerhea

"For this little altered project I started off by framing out my chipboard focal with lots of layering mattes from the Steampunk Spells 8x8 and Steampunk Spells Patters and solids. In order to blend my papery layers into the canvas, I used a sheet of the tissue wrap along with lots of matte medium. I also added tissue tape outside the edges with the matte medium. After it was dry, I rubbed gilders paste onto the edges, pulling out all kinds of delicious textures. Then I started to add my dimensional elements: flowers, Graphic 45 Staples and more chipboard pieces. If you want to see how I created those fun flowers, I put together a step by step for you on Snapguide! Cheers, Rhea."

"I'm a big fan of vintage style and I love to be photographed in this style. Graphic 45 paper captures the spirit of antiquity, that you want more and more photo and more layouts to do some peace of heart & art! I wanted to make this page such as if it a sheet of old fashion magazine.

To create a page you need five sheets of paper in two colors: in black and in blue. Put themselve on each other to have interesting effect! After it you need to layering. It`s so Funny!!! You will have perfect project with Couture collection!" ~Nadya

"I was inspired by three beautiful colours from the Core’dinations cardstock colours: ‘Heritage Kraft’, ‘Sweet Apricot’ and ‘Spring Green’, which are all part of the gorgeous “An Eerie Tale” collection. I really loved the grid pattern on the “Magic Spell” paper and cut it out to use it as a background for my lay-out. I also cut out several flowers, an owl, a girl and a couple of other beautiful images to match my photo. " ~Romy

Graphic45_NBattilana_MotherGoose_JewelJars_2of6

Welcome to another day of the Graphic 45 Color Challenge! We have three more amazing projects for you today. Two of them use the same color palette, and it's so much fun to see how a designer can take the same three colors and create something completely unique and beautiful Nichola shares some amazing Mother Goose jewel jars. Then, we have a layout from Donna that is simply stunning. Andrew Roberts creates dazzling journaling blocks.It's going to be a terrific Tuesday!

Have you been inspired to take the G45 Color Challenge? If you want to join in the fun, just choose three of the colors below from our Signature Series Core'dinations Cardstock and use it as the inspiration for your next project.

We love her jewel jars using the Mother Goose collection. What a fun idea!

"The annual fun fair at my son’s school is fast approaching. This year his class was asked to donate “Jewel Jars” as prizes. These little jars are packed with goodies of all sorts like candy, school supplies, and small toys. Using Core'dinations Lemon Chiffon, Spring Green and Robin’s Egg in combination with Graphic 45’s Mother Goose collection I’ve spruced up some inexpensive plastic jars. I’ve gone easy on the embellishments, making them a quick fun project that will appeal to little prize winners at the school… but you could absolutely run with the concept for bridal showers, or party favours and decorate to your hearts content!" ~Nichola

"One of my favorite papercrafting projects is constructing or altering boxes. I look at pinterest often enjoying the many varied altered projects. This style of project gives me the chance to be simple or detailed and has an eclectic range of ideas. graphic 45 papers are perfect for the altering process. you can use a single collection or merge collections together.

Tip: Creating a shadow box effect allows for a lot of detail in a small part of the project." ~Andrew

"I’ve found this non-functional weighing scale that I had previously bought at one of $2 thrift stores which is not working really well. Sometimes, things that are bought too cheaply has a tendency to just dump it away when it's malfunction. Well, I opt to alter it, transforming this little weighing scale to something I can keep some of my favorite French Country recipes..." ~Katie

This small set of drawers was painted a complimentary pink for the new classic release of Baby to Bride. First the knobs were carefully removed with pliers that had been wrapped with several layers of paper towel so as not to scratch or break the them.

Little pieces like this should have all surfaces covered. It's easy to forget the back sometimes but it really finishes it nicely when done. The back is covered with a blue diamond paper called 'From this Moment'.

The drawer cabinet is going to be covered with 'Sentimental Baby' in one piece that wraps around the sides. This pattern is made from several pieces of scrap paper and taped together. Then the pattern is carefully transferred to the paper. Take your time when cutting it out and adhering so you get it perfectly in place.

Now, to wrap up this magnificent day, we have an incredible altered frame by Donna using Botanical Tea. This is so gorgeous!

"I altered a frame I bought in a thrift store, like a dollar store in the USA. Originally the color is gold with black stains. I primed the frame with white gesso, about 3 layers (drying after each layer first before painting new gesso). Then I brushed the frame with Mod Podge (matte) before adhering the fuzzy cut flowers. I glued the flower pieces with a glue gun and then brushed several layers of Mod Podge again. I also used Platinum stickles for a little bit of sparkle. I dabbed Mod Podge dimensional magic to the butterflies and monogram." ~Donna
