How to Create a Color Wheel Layout

Hello American Crafts Fans! Terhi here with you today, introducing you to my first scrapbook layout done with Shimelle’s brand new Field Trip collection.


The Field Trip collection is a fun and colorful mix of boyish toys, animals, and creatures. It also includes lots of beautiful patterned papers with rainbow colors.


At first, I had a couple of ideas on how I wanted to start. But when I saw the 12 x 12 Specialty Paper included with the collection I decided to make a layout with a color wheel  because I love all the colors so much. The wonderful specialty sheet is pre-cut so re-creating this layout will be super easy.


First, I took separate color wheel pieces from the sheet and attached them onto white cardstock using foam tape. I used foam tape in order to add some dimension to the layout. You can see how nicely the papers are separated from each other!

To place the pieces perfectly on to the cardstock I washi taped the die cut sheet over the white cardstock, then carefully took it away when all the colored paper pieces were attached.


I left one of the eight slices empty for a photograph. The green slice was perfect for this as I had so much natural green tones in the photograph I was going to use. If you wish to add two or more photos, simply leave some more slices empty.


Then, I had some fun fussy cutting flowers and bugs out of patterned papers. All the fussy cut flowers and leaves ended up forming a small cluster next to the photo, and the dragonflies and butterflies created the perfect embellishment.


Now I just can’t wait to create another project with the Field Trip! Thank you for stopping by here today!
