Unfortunately the weather was against me today so my photo couldnt be taken outside due to rain (and forecast for more this week) but I managed to get this one taken the best I could. When the weather returns I will upload a better image (the challenge closes on the 30th so had to submit this one asap) - nothing like the last minute!
Anyway, with housekeeping out of the way I enjoyed this challenge at Colourful Creations - White + Kraft! I found this photo of myself and my husband and thought it was a good one to use for the colours....I used a Martha Stewart border punch, then using eyelets I strung the two pieces together with a thick kraft piping ribbon. I embossed alot of white paper and fussy cut the flowers & swirls to add to the photo border along with some painted Dusty Attic chippees. I wanted to use a "dress form" from my resistant canvas embellies (prima) but it looked too 'cream' for the 'white' challenge so I used it as a template and fussy cut on kraft instead. I enjoyed using misting, paint and ink on this page and starting to experiment even more to get the effects that I want. I know I am only a beginner with wet mediums but its a start!
These types of challenges really help the imagination go wild with the embellies I have but am still finding the real challenge is in the colour combos - I am hoping to get back to Colour Combos Galore and reach their date line for the next pallette!
P.S. I managed to get a photo while the sun was out - Not sure if its a better pic but thought would upload anyways!
