As you have probably gathered the idea is based on a combination of colours which Amy found and sent us, here is the picture and colour combination...............
here , she has the most beautiful blog header and some wonderful tutorials' cards and recipe ideas. Yummy. If not and you are just a routine friend popping to see where I've been please do pop on over to visit the rest of our hop, the list of the whole hop is at the end of this post.
I have been having a rough time recently with my Bipolar and I have wanted to do a page which reflects something simple but important about me. I have been listening alot to Lady Gaga which is pretty cool and love ''Born this way'', the lyrics seemed to have been written for me. So here is my layout entitles Born this Way......
I used a piece of Bassill cardstock and then 2 strips of patterned paper cut using border punches. I inked the edges of these strips to match the colour combo and then added a strip of ruffled ribbon at the bottom and the ricrac for the neutral colour shades.The picture is a favourite of me at my sister's 40th a couple of years ago and I used a Photobooth application.
All you have to do is upload 4 pictures of your choice and hey presto. I used the same one as I only had one but I like the effect. I made the rossettes myself and punched the edges again to reflect the patterned paper background strips. They were inked with a brown soft ink and then I had Tim Holtz button and another from a kit I added. The doilie is neutral lace again, and the flower is from Prima.
I then had some Jenni Bowlin butterfly stickers and some bling for their trails from Basic Grey which I added to pretty them up more. The flower is from a recent Scrapbooking from the Inside out kit.
So that's my layout and I enjoyed being restricted to certain colours, it focussed me more so I might have to try this more often. So now I have a small giveaway for you. I have a place on Shimelle's little class called ''When I grow up''. All you have to do is leave me a comment by Monday of this week and I will draw a name out of the hat on Tuesday to let you know who has won.
The final stop on our hop is over the other side of the world in Asia with the wonderful Xnomads who not only does some brilliant classes and photography, but tells us wonderful tales from her life in Asia with her family.
