2RB Banana Split Sunday Challenge No. 8

That's right... it's Sunday again, so that means it's time for 2RedBananas' Banana Split Sunday Challenge. This week's challenge is to create something monochromatic. How easy is that!?! Go to the 2RB blog for more info and to see the DT's samples.

I have used this challenge to inspire me to create another page for Kate's chipboard book. I have decided the theme will be her first birthday. All of the chipboard pages and DP are from Little Yellow Bicycle.

The background is the chipboard page covered with a piece of yellow DP. I used some pearlescent yellow CS for the photo mat, rounded the corners and adhered it to the page with the photo on top. The three yellow fabric flowers on the upper left corner of the photo are from a piece of Making Memories ribbon, but I cut each of the flowers apart and stuck a yellow rhinestone in the center of each.

The baby chicken is from Jami Bova's stamp set Chicken Dumpling by 2RedBananas, which I stamped on yellow DP from Crate Paper's Baby Bee collection (it's the perfect color for these chicken stamps) with Jet Black StazOn ink. It's colored with DerWent watercolor pencils and some gold Sakura Stardust ink, with a little Shimmerz on the diaper. The image was punched with a scallop punch and matted on another yellow CS scalloped circle. The birthday hat is from the Birthday Chicken set and I paper pieced it onto Chicken Dumpling. The whole thing was then adhered with pop dots.

This was a very fast and fun layout to create. Being monochromatic made it easy to get papers together - yellow matches yellow, right? I hope you'll join us Bananas in the challenge this week.


  1. This is adorable!! I love how you used the hat with dumpling!! And Kate is sooo cute in this pic!!

  2. Great match. I'm so glad were getting to see more pages from that book. Very cute.

  3. I love how you paired the yellow picture frame with the grayscale photograph. At first I focused on the frame and then my eyes naturally gravitated towards the picture. Great!


Love to hear what you think!
