So onto the sharing now! Palette #126 was a palette that screamed "SWEET" to me. I found a photo of my daughter when she was about 4, she was standing there with something in her mouth beside someone else. I thought she looked "SWEET" so i scanned and cropped the photo to just her and printed it in black and white. Flying true to form i have created a page where i have chosen to stick before i think. I didn't know how this page was going to turn out but i just kept adding until i was happy with the end result. I love the colour scheme. I have used something similar once or twice in the past. I have made this page using mostly scraps and bits and pieces i have on my desk. I started out with my background paper i then scrumpled it and added Glimmermist and wiped this over the page with a baby wipe filling in the exposed white bits. I then preceded to stick the word sweet all over my page using up old alphabets i even dyed some of the flowers so they were pink. The lavender i have stuck on my page is something i had only just purchased from a cheap store recently and thought they would look great.
Next is this weeks palette. It really was a tricky one. I was going through all my stash looking and then i found my black/white chevron tape. I layered this all over a piece of white background. I cropped the photo down to cut some horrible background out and then just preceded to layer and add and expand. At one stage it was looking like i was going to have another page with alot of white space but i just kept adding and adding. I am still using those buttons up and can you believe i haven't even put a dent in the packet, lol. I get a little OCD when placing my buttons and they have to all face the same way and i can't seem to break this habit. I opted not to sew them this time because of the few i have used that don't have holes. The photo is only 4 out of the 5 of us. Unfortunately there is always one of us missing because we are all scattered over Australia. I do miss my siblings but we are only just a phone call away and despite the age gaps between us we are all quite close.
So that is it from me today off to do a little housework, figure out my meals for the next few weeks to compose a shopping list and scrap some more later i hope! TFL have a wondeful day :)
