For LOAD1 (Layout a Day--Day 1), the prompt was Colors, specifically the colors of red, white, and blue for the flag from The Netherlands. You could use the colors in the prompt, or you could take inspiration from the sample layout. I chose to focus on the color of blue and to scrap a photo of the Mona Lisa. I used the February single page sketch from Stick It Down to get started.
After trying out a couple of different things, I turned to my WONDERFUL husband for assistance! He has great ideas and many times sees things I don't. Thanks to his idea, my layout turned out like this:
My husband had the idea of creating a pyramid where the diamonds are on the sketch, since there is a crystal pyramid in the courtyard of The Louvre. I didn't want to cover up the background paper, as I really love the images that are on it, so I cut squares from transparency sheets and placed them together like a pyramid. It's also a little hard to tell from these photos, but the main color in the background paper is a very light blue.
