Hellll-o-o-o!!! I have been having some time 'in the zone' today and I can't beleive the time has flown by so quickly - but I do have something to show you - This layour for The Color Room Challenge - I am loving this challenge and the way they do a lot of the thinking for you by giving us a colour palette each week - mind you, in saying that - these colours are not in my 'comfort zone' but I am happy with the outcome!
I used Layers of Color flowers from the Nature Walk art stamp set and the butterflies from the Butterfly Collector art stamp set - you can see a close up in the photo below. I know I have said it before, but I am constantly amazed at how much diffence one image can make to the total look of a project - this is the case with this layout - once I had added these, it all just lifted and I know it had finished...no more fiddling - quite a 'fete' for me! LOL!
The DP is from Die Cuts With a View - the 'Once Upon a Time' series. I loved this window and knew as soon as I saw this photo my DH had 'quietly' taken of me, that I would use it on this DP. I used the second sheet to cut out the window frame and sponge the edges, then attached it with foam tape, giving it dimension, but not too much!! I have tried to get the right angle with the photo below so you can get an idea of the dimension. My Scrapbook Albums are pretty thick by the time I fill them up - are you surprised!?!? LOL!
This gorgeous Prima flower vine was part of a RAK from Priscilla - thank you Priscilla - I have been waiting for the right time to use it and it fitted perfectly on this layout - it is the perfect colours for The Color Room Challenge.
You can find more of my Layouts on my Layers of Color gallery , while you are there you can share in the excitement as Laura has opened a brand new gallery - Scrapbook News & Review (SNR) is an online scrapbook magazine with a community forum that includes Layers of Color (LOC) fan club.
