The Many Hues of Creativity


It's Day Four of the G45 Color Challenge, and we are loving seeing these amazing projects from our Design Team.  Today's projects will just make your week. Tati Scrap shares the most beautiful card that follows a beautiful spectrum of colors. Then, Rhea Freitag shares a Steampunk Spells canvas that will make you feel you can fly! Nadya Lifa then shares a stunning layout that truly just shows how much three colors can pop.

Before we share their projects, don't forget to comment on our blog or Facebook to win this great prize pack with Place in Time and An ABC Primer chipboard! The winner will be announced here tomorrow. Have fun!


Here are the colors we gave each of our Design Team members to use as inspiration, and they chose three to influence their project. If you want to try it, choose three yourself!

Tati Scrap was inspired by these three colors: Heritage Kraft, Creme Brulee, and Spring Green. We just love how she so creatively uses her color as inspiration!

Next, Rhea shares the most brilliant canvas using Steampunk Spells and her three colors: Tuscan Sunset, Bon Voyage, and Heritage Kraft. She even has a tutorial on how to make those beautiful flowers! Try it out!


"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
