Color Challenge in Depth: Layout Tutorial by Sharon Martinelli

Hello everyone! It’s Sharon again here today with a detailed look on how I created my layout we shared on the October Color Challenge reveal day. You’ll get to see some close up shots, as well a quick video tutorial on what I did to create it!

If you’ve followed me on my YouTube Channel for quite a while, you know very well the love affair I have with Lindy’s Stamp Gang embossing powders. I just think they are so unique, and give any project such an awesome look. In this layout, I used several of them, in different ways, and I love the two toned effect on the different areas of my layout. In the close up shots, you’ll be able to tell the awesomeness of these powders. Take a closer look:  Sharon LSGOCTCC1 copy

Here is the finished layout in its entirety, and you can find the video tutorial for it right here and below. Hope you like it, and are inspired to join this month’s challenge. Five $50 Gift Certificates will be given away as prizes. You don’t want to miss it!
