The Color Room #23

Friday, September 17, 2010

I have my take on The Color Room's Palette #23, for you all, today.
Here's what I came up with.
I started this layout by punching the green, polka dot, patterned paper, down its left side, and adhering it to the Garden Green, cardstock page, which had been distressed with Moonlight white ink.  I, then, adhered the orange, patterned, glitter paper, down the right side of the green, polka dot, patterned paper, and followed it, to the left, by the punched, green, die-cut strip.  The turquoise, polka dot, patterned paper, which was dressed up with my framed, with Pumpkin Pie cardstock, and edged, across its top, with a punched strip of orange, star, patterned paper, photo, was, then, tucked under the left center of the punched, die-cut strip.  The entire layout was, then, taken to my sewing machine for some double-stitched, white-threaded, straight stitches around the outside edges; white-threaded, zig-zag stitches between the two vertical layers; and double-stitched, white-threaded, corner stitches in the top left corner of the turquoise, polka dot, patterned paper.
I, then, adhered my Cricut-cut, from white cardstock, flourishes down the left side of the photograph; the "look mom!", foam, Thickers title; and the white, cardstock, journal strips, which read, When a bouncy ball bonked you in the mouth, you were almost in tears as you reached to cover you mouth; but your tears, quickly, turned into excitement, when you realized that it had helped you lose your 1st tooth.  5-16-09.
Finally, I stamped the stars, in Tempting Turquoise, Pumpkin Pie, and Garden Green inks, on white cardstock; glittered them in color-coordinating glitters; embellished their centers with white gemstones; and adhered them, with dimensionals, to hand-cut and distressed, with Moonlight White ink, Tempting Turquoise, Pumpkin Pie, and Garden Green, cardstock stars, which were, in turn, adhered, with dimensionals, to the layout surface.
Thanks for checking in on me today!  Have a great weekend, everyone!
