Shimelle's Challenge Four: Colour Adventure

I was really excited when I saw this challenge on Shimelle's site this past weekend. The challenge was to complete a layout using yellow, grey and one other colour. I initially thought aqua but when my April Studio Calico City of Light kit arrived I knew the main was perfect for this challenge and I knew my third colour was going to be green.

This layout uses a series of photos I took last May Day when we stumbled across the Open Day at the Istana (the Presidential Palace). We really enjoyed the open green spaces right in the heart of the city. The Istana only opens a few days a year and we are keen to return there soon.

I used a Shimelle Starting Point that I have used before involving stacks of patterned paper in decreasing sizes. All the paper and embellishments is from the April Main kit with the exception of the sequins and the two smaller fonts which came from one of the add ons, Sorbonne. I am so in love with this kit and finding it incredibly easy to work with.

If you would like to take part in this challenge please go here or head straight to for all the challenges. They run until the end of the weekend.
