For your first February Mashup Challenge Merrilee chose the templates. She said she picked templates that could easily be used for a timely Valentine’s Day theme or as Carolyn’s (aka Amson) and Julie’s (akaMaggieMae) pages demonstrate something completely different! In contrast, Barbara (grantlaurensmom) and Merrilee (digigrandma) kept the predominantly pink colors and heart motifs from the templates for their pages. If you love to have your choice of many wonderful design elements, including paint and brush work, you are going to love mashing these two templates.
Artsy Layered Template No. 08
Layer Works 636
First up, Barbara’s page is a vision of loveliness with her vacation photos. In addition to the templates she used Lightly Linens Paper Pack No. 03, Typewriter Clusters Brushes and Stamps No. 01, Watercolor Page Titles Brushes and Stamps No. 14 and papers from Monthly Memories Vol. 3.
Our second example by Julie has a gray and blue color scheme and features one darling photo of her granddaughter with her dear pet dog. Julie added Clusters of Love Brushes and Stamps No. 02, Bold Sentiments Brushes and Stamps No. 16 and My Vintage Valentine No. 02 Solids Paper Pack No. 01.
Carolyn also chose a blue and gray color scheme and really made use of the brushwork from the templates. It’s a stunning look with her black and white photo. Extra designs used are Arctic Frost Paper Pack, Arctic Frost Solids Paper Pack, Stitched Circle Sentiments No. 02, Stitched Journalers No. 04, My Vintage Valentine No. 02 Bits and Pieces, Misty Meadows Paper Pack and Misty Meadows Textures Paper Pack.
Merrilee’s example uses background paper, Vintage Valentine No. 02 Solids Paper Pack as the only addition to what is available in the templates.
Remember the two featured templates are included in this week’s Thrifty Thursday sale and are available beginning Wednesday morning.
