Kraft Plus July Challenge - goodtimes

The new Kraft Plus challenge is up.
A Mustard Explosion!
The criteria:
Use Kraft as your background
Draw inspiration from the photo
Use yellow paint on your layout

 My first thoughts when I saw this challenge.....
Eeekkkk - What!!!!! A Mustard Explosion - use Yellow paint on your layout.
Now what am I going to do???
Yellow is a colour I  rarely scrap with and paint is  not something I use much of either.
Now this is going to be a challenge for me.
But I love a challenge.
After much thought and a look at the Kraft Plus DT's brilliant and inspirational layouts, I had an idea in my was just a matter of getting it from there to the Kraft Paper,
( sometimes easier said than done for me.)
 After looking closely at the photo, and past the mustard explosion, a few things inspired me.
 1. My eyes were immediately drawn to  the White Heart. Hearts are my scrapbooking trademark - almost every layout of mine has a heart of some sort on it. Yes I would use white hearts.
2. The depth and layers in the photo, I love adding layers on a layout. I would do that.
3. A touch of yellow paint  here and there would work best for me.
 The challenge says to use yellow paint, it doesn't say how much,so that is entirely up to you.
Okay, I think I can do that.
4. I also spotted a roll of twine. I am loving twine and thread at the moment so yes I would  use that somewhere on my layout. 
Amanda Hall's layout really inspired me.
  I loved her idea of using chipboard  and  layering chipboard  elements to the
 background of her layout  
Here is what I made.
 My time on the 2Crafty Chipboard Design Team had just ended and I have a huge stash of this gorgeous chippie left over, so when I saw Amanda's idea  I  decided to add layers and layers of chippie pieces to my background. 
  I painted each piece of chippie with yellow paint and  the Chippie Hearts were painted white.
This isn't exactly what I had in my head, but I'm happy with how it turned out.
Thanks Amanda  for your inspiration.
Thanks Kraft + for a fun challenge.
Thanks for stopping by and having a  look at my work.
Your lovely comments are always much appreciated. Thank You.
