Colour Stories Inspiration Case #239

Lets Go

How I solved the case:
The sketch: I have used one larger photo rather than the four smaller ones; and added embellishment cluster in the bottom right corner of the photo.
The scheme: ballerina pink - texture paste, enamel dots; minty green - texture paste, die cuts; pale warm grey/off white - patterned paper, die cuts; dark navy blue - chalk mist; sky/powder blue - patterned paper, shimmer mist.
The evidence: thin stripes, floral pattern, flowers, leaves, flamingo, washi tape, circles.
The testimony: song title inspiration - Lets Go (by the Cars in the eighties), hand written journalling.

Scrap Matrix Challenge

My Happy Place challenge

Hello crafty friends. It is very exciting to be entering the first ever Scrap Matrix challenge....although Vicki has very generously been sponsoring other challenges for a long time now.  I was inspired by the colours of the moodboard, and have used some 'warts and all' photos from my scrap space.

 I am lucky to have a 'room' to my own, although I do have to share it with our cat Smudge. I have been using this space for almost a year now and there are still some things in the 'I don't know where to put this' pile, so the evolution continues.

Because my layout background and photos are very busy, I have kept the embellishments very simple.

Products from Scrap Matrix: 13@rts Rainbow Colour - bordeaux, navy (duo); Ayeeda Mist Chalk - yellow amber, turquoise, dirty pink; Ayeeda Ink - black; Ayeeda Gesso - white, Faber Castell - whipped spackle (love this); Colour Arte Radiant Gel - vavoom red; and (not sure of the brand) wood veneer title 'imagine'.

Thanks to Vicki and the Scrap Matrix team for a fun challenge, can't wait to see future challenges. 
Cheers and Thanks for looking.
