finding balance...SCRAPFRIENDS January Color Challenge

Wednesday, January 15, 2014

This is my take on the new Color Challenge at ScrapFriends...
and part of my One Little Word  =  b a l a n c e.

This is the color palette below and is a gorgeous combination of warm tones normally cooler colors.
I love the magenta color, always my favorite color in the box of crayons! :)
Colour Challenge #21
This is about the time of year I do either a self-reflection type page or a LO
documenting my One Little Word.  Balance.  That is my goal for this year.
Which encompasses just about every other little word I had debated, since I am
trying to achieve a balance between all of those other goals, feelings, aspirations...

I started with this Instagram selfie from New Year's morning, no shower,
no make I am!  I love these die cut files that are part of the Scrapbook Circle
January kit that have 5 words listed on a Project Life type card...I wanted to
highlight each word, so I die cut 5 cards and layered glitter paper under a different
word. I also wanted to give the cards so color and depth, so I layered a
stencil on each one and then painted it with watercolor.

I love this fuchsia paper from Studio Calico's Print Shop collection, but it extremely
powerful, so I layered underneath everything.  I used a couple stamps in yellow
and then wrote out my title in India ink.  I need more practice trying to write a script
font with a paint brush, especially at the end of a LO where it could all be ruined,
but I gave it a shot.  I love the contrast it gives all these colors.  

 I am truly amazing at the array of talent and unique approaches to the challenges every month.
This one is fantastic!  All of them eye catching, guest designers too!
