Some shares!

Hi guys just popping by to share a few pages i created. The first one is using this weeks palette over at The Color Room. Wow this was a tricky palette for me this week. I mean i love the raspberry pink part but with pool blue and leafy green i was not sure at all. However once i started i just could not stop. I made all the flowers myself using my flower punch whilst sitting and watching Winners and Losers, i have used a few Prima chipboard stickers and i am classing the lace as ribbon. I have had some Cricut Colors in my stash for a long time and decided to use them, so i did a birdcage. Because it looked so flat i decided to add some lace to it as well. I was roughly inspired by the sketch too but altered it to one photo and used some embellies instead of other photos. I also added a bit of white throughout to try to stop the green being so stark. So here is this weeks palette and sketch.

Here is my page i am probably about 95% happy with how it turned out, just not sure about the green.

A few little close ups of my flowers coated with some Gesso and Kindyglitz

A close up of that birdcage, as well as my stamped leaves and more flowers.

The second page i created was for this weeks case file over at CSI: Color, Stories, Inspiration. I had so much fun with this one. I managed to use some of my stash as well as a few new things and some shells from our trips to the beach. Here is this weeks case file.

The evidence i used was wet medium(texture paste and Glimmermist), something grainy(real sand), vellum, dots, round or soften edges. My testimony was documenting a trip to the beach as well as document a transformation which was my daughters change in attitude towards the beach. My journalling reads "You haven't always loved the beach. In fact the first time i took you, when you were 6 months old, you cried when you touched the sand and cried even more when i washed you in the sea. I am glad  you have come around to the beach and these days I can't stop your jump right in approach. On this day we went withyour best mate, Taylor, and the pair of you had so much fun together. You both would run at the sea as fast as you could but stop at the water's edge not quite game enough to go any further. Such happy fun times!" Here is my page.

 Just a little close up.

So that is it from me for now I am off to continue my motherly duties and it is almost that time of day to pick my daughter up from school. TFL!
