Authentique Paper June Inspiration Color Challenge!

I woke up this morning and thought Wow... is it Saturday? Already? The weeks sure seem to fly by fast! Luckily, today you are in for a treat!

Do you play along with the challenges on the Authentique Paper Blog? If so, you might remember that we had a "Color Challenge" last year, right? We did away with it because of the lack of participation, but decided to bring it back with a "Fresh" new look!



I designed the color storyboard, so I'm a little fond of it ♥. We wanted to give you a series of colors as well as some inspiration photos to get your creativity flowing! I really have always been a fan of color challenges though. Much more than sketches! You all know, I am not a layout or card guru. I am an altered artist for sure! I love that with the color challenge, you are given a series of colors to play with, that's it, the rest is where your creativity comes in handy!

So for today's color challenge project, this is what I came up with...


Here is where the idea started...
I had this little tray that I bought from the $ spot at Target this past Spring. It DID serve a purpose.... I was holding all of my Authentique stickers and die cuts in it... until now! 

I thought it would look much better altered! 

I LOVE the beach. As you all might know from my posts here on my blog. My living room decor is all beachy, so that's where this pretty little project will be displayed!

Aren't the little crabby's cute? I cut them with my Silhousette Cameo. The file for them came fro mthe Silhouette Online Store. 

I added some shells that I had laying around, I always keep a ton of shells, you never know when you might need them for a craft project!


Stop by the Authentique Paper Blog today to see the inspiration projects from the rest of the DT and play along with us! You have until July 18th to link up your projects!

Emily, just found your blog, and it's love at first sight I love doing these altered projects. Did you do the project that was a container altered for a "toilet paper roll journal". I would love to know what that journal is. The name is great.
