Happy Place 31

Hi there! Today I have a layout to share featuring a photo of my sweet husband Scott that was taken while we were on a European vacation a couple of years ago. Unlike me, Scott loves the color orange so I challenged myself to join along with the current Colour Me colour challenge which is all about the color orange!
I'm also playing along with the March Prima Build A Page sketch challenge:
To create the background, I used fun papers from the Prima Cartographer collection along with stamps from the Prima Rust & dust stamp set that my dear friend Sue gifted to me:
I added texture using Prima Modeling Paste, Prima Gesso, Prima Worn Leather and Gilded Color Bloom Spray Mists:
Once the background was complete, I embellished with a variety of Prima flowers and metal trinkets:

Here's the Prima March BAP sketch:
and here's the Colour Me color inspiration graphic:

Many thanks for stopping by! I hope you have a great weekend!
Be Sweet ;)

Hey how did you put those pictures together like that?? The first one with 3 in it....looks great, you've had a revamp of your blog ....looks great!! xx

It may not be a colour you use very often, but you've rocked it here! Your oranges have such a glow of sunshine about them, and are softened by the white and earthed by the darker grey/brown tones... beautifully done, with such great textures too.
