Ok well I did say in my last post that I was going to set a goal to do 3 new posts this week. This is my first one!! YAY!! I sat down last night and prayed that my mojo would come back to me. No such luck but I did manage to get Layout number 2 done for my Grandparents birthday present. I have used the colour palette over at The Colour Room for this LO.
I started off with the base page which was just white cardstock. I added to it some white embossed flourishes. I then watered down some paints and poured them over the page. I had to then wipe off the excess paint so that the flourishes came through. I liked the outcome but after agonising over the colour palette I decided that the blue was "to blue". I then came across a patterened paper that I had in a stack that had all of the colours worked into it. I decided to use half of this (the more colourful half) to cover over some of the blue on the page. So I tore it in half, distressed the other edges and stuck it down. At this point I was ready to just give up!! I really didn't like how it was looking. But I perservered and after getting the rest of the elements on the page I have actually come to like it. I would however really like to find my mojo........ it has been gone for a while now and I am really missing it.
Some Prima pearls and flowers along with some mini roses and a pattered brad make up some of the elements that started to turn this page around for me
Obviously I love flowers at the moment. The title is chipboard that has been painted with yellow and then covered with glossy accents.
I have used some lace to add a bit more depth to the page aswell. The more I look at the page the more I like it.
