Color Me Creative - Orange

I'm taking my first online class from Big Picture Classes which you can find out more about here:

http://www.bigpictureclasses.com/selfpaced.php

This week's theme is about the color orange!  They give us a sketch to follow for a layout and then encourage us to take the chosen color and create.  Here's a card I did with some remnant papers I found in my stash.  My goal is to use up the papers I have collected (and there are MANY) before buying anymore. Which means I could probably hold up in my craft room for several years and not run out of paper.  Glue maybe, but never paper. 




And here's my take on the sketch challenge.  They encouraged journaling down the left side, so I wrote about my FAVORITE topic, my 3-year old grandson, Jonas.  I'm SO behind on his scrapbooks so I'm using this class to get some inspiration and get 'er done!





Unfortunately, in both cases, my camera didn't really pick up the deep hues of some of these papers, but you get the general idea.  Maybe my next hobby will be to learn to take better photos!

Hi Lillian, We are on the same mission to use up the scraps and paper we have. I am taking an online Copic class. I am anxious to hear how you like your class because I have been considering the one you are taking for in the future. But for now the Copic Class and the Summer Card Class are about all I can handle. And once again thank you so much all of the goodies-I am still putting stuff away! LOL
