CCG 151

Thursday, July 22, 2010

I've got my take on Color Combos Galore #151, for you all, today.
Gorgeous!  I just knew that a transparency I'd been holding onto FOREVER would be perfect for this challenge!  Here's what I came up with.
I started this layout by adhering, some flush with the transparency surface and others with dimensionals, lots of flourishes, in Cricut-cut, Tempting Turquoise cardstock and orange, polka dot, patterned paper and purchased, textured, yellow, cardstock die-cuts.
The "COMFORT QUIRKS" title was stamped, in Jet Black ink, in the upper left corner of the transparency.
I, then, added cut photos and stamped flowers and leaves, in Tempting Turquoise, Only Orange, Yoyo Yellow, and Green Galore inks, on white cardstock; hand cut out the leaves; punched out the flowers; adhered them to the layout, some flush with the transparency and others with dimensionals; and embellished their centers, as well as the centers of the transparency flowers, with turquoise, Dessert Sun, and white gemstones.
I, then, journaled, We always knew when you'd had enough and were ready for bed, because your thumb would go in your mouth and you'd start rubbing the back of your head, on strips of white cardstock...
and added a 3 mo., Feb. '09, die-cut tab to the left side of the bottom, rectangular photograph.
Finally, I brushed turquoise, acrylic paint onto a sheet of textured, white cardstock and added it behind the transparency layout.

Gotta run, but I'll be back later with Off the Wall Craftiness' Color Challenge #16.  It's scrumptious!  Until then, stay cool; and have a fantastic, summer day!  Oh!  And run check out The Playdate Cafe's newest post.  You might just find one of my creations, along with a host of other beauties, under their Cream in Our Coffee badge.  Thanks so much, ladies!
