Add a Splash of Color... 48

Mona Pendleton | Sunday, November 17, 2013 @ 2:27 AM | , , , , ,

Hi there! Hope you are having a great weekend! Last night, Scott and I had the pleasure of attending the High School musical, It's A Wonderful Life. Meredith, (on the right), was in charge of operating the stage lights and my Great Niece, Madison (on the left) who is in 6th grade, was singing in the chorus:
Here's another photo of Madison that was taken while standing in the reception line :)
I had some me time so I made this layout featuring a photo of Scott, Meredith and Connor that was taken several years ago while we were visiting the San Diego Zoo Safari Park which is an incredible 1,800 acre zoo. 
Lots of white space and brighter colors are quite challenging for me to work with but I'm trying to get over those fears. I was inspired to do so by a few of Anna's layouts that may be found here. I started with 2 pieces of stitched together white cardstock then I combined various colors of Distress inks to create the rainbow of color. I added texture using the Square Tiles Stencil
I added texture using the Square Tiles Stencil. Once dry, I randomly stamped doodled like flowers and foliage from Pretty Pocket and splashes of ink from Jumbo Abstract Art. For the title, I stamped one of the sentiments from Clearly Sentimental About Art:
I embellished a few die cut doilies, hearts, a Hybrid Camellia Flower and Layered Leaves:
For color inspiration, I joined along with the Scrap Around The World November challenge:
and for sketch inspiration, I joined along with the current Skissedilla challenge:
Thank you for stopping by. Hope you have a great day!
Be Sweet ;)

I love your page !! It is bold and very striking but a the same time it has a really lovely "softness"......maybe because of the white space, or the flowers or the beautiful photo or maybe because you black is not really black but a grey. What ever, it works for me and I love it. Thank you so much for playing along with us again at SATW.
