Okay, so Challenge #1 was a success over at Color Me Scrappy. There were 25 entries for the first challenge which is amazing. And it's the 15th of the month so guess what that means - Challenge #2!!
This one was a little hard for me because of the darker colors, I think I still rocked it though :) Here are the colors for challenge #2.....
Now I have to tell you the story of this layout. I started out with this awesome sheet of double sided paper (can't remember the brand) it is textured like linen - really cool and the background is all just basically the patterned paper. So to start off I wanted to add some acrylic paint cause everyone else is using it and really how hard can it be. Oh yah - very hard!! I hated it so I ripped it right out of the paper and then - voila!! I picked up a second sheet of patterned paper that had the darker tones to it and sat it behind and then just fell in love.
The butterflies were part of the background paper and I added some crystal effects on to make them pop.
The picture was not great quality - I think it was actually just a color copy that I printed on my printer but it was something that I want to remember - me graduating grade 8 - oh yah that's me in the blue, what a cute little girl - hehe!
