Hi there! I'm so excited to have had a project shared on the ever so talented Marjie Kemper's blog (thank you Marjie!) and I would be tinkled pink if you would check out her blog HERE. Today I have a layout share featuring fun patterned papers from the Pion design A Day in May collection along with photos of Meredith that were taken about 7 years ago. This is not my "typical" layout using Pion papers ~ I challenged myself to get inky and create a mixed media style layout:
For color, sketch and theme inspiration I joined along with the current CSI 131 challenge:

I created a patch like square using 4 different photos of Meredith in action grooming and riding her horse:
I added interest, I applied a layer of crackle paint to the wooden title and applied modeling past to the background:
I applied various inks to Pion papers and to several flowers to get the colors appropriate for the challenge and I also added polka dot design using a stencil and gesso:
I pulled out some brads from my stash and randomly fastened them to the page ~ sort of remind me of the latest craze for enamel dots. I haven't caved and bought any as of yet, have you?
I took a couple photos along the way to share how I added texture and color to the pretty Pion design papers:

To wrap it up, here's how I interpreted the challenge:
Colors: I used all 5
Evidence: wet medium, doodling, polka dots, brads
Testimony: I journaled about an outdoor activity
Sketch: followed
Thanks so much for stopping by!
Be Sweet ;)

I love your take on this weeks palette and such a clever way to get the right colours for it. I would never have thought of that. The background is stunning and I love the crackled title. Mine is not coming out right. Not enough on I reckon. Beautiful Mona. x

Fantastic layout, Mona! I love the texture on the banners and background. I haven't bought any of the enamel dots as of yet but your idea of using brads is a perfect substitute.
