Challenge at More than Favors
So this challenge is all about colors - specifically blue and green (two of my favorites). These colors definitely make me think of nature! Our trip to Lake Tahoe was certainly full of blues and greens; from the mountains to the water. I love trying new ways to embellish my pages so for the title I used the Cricut George & Basics Shapes cart (set on 'charm') and some wire and silver beads. I really like how the beaded wire adds an extra element of texture to the page - even similar to ropes used to tie boats to the dock. The glitter adds a touch of sparkle representing water. Tearing / inking / and using scalloped scissors on the photos and background mats also adds an element of rustic. I use hidden journaling a lot on my pages so that the pics take front-and-center stage. This was a magnificent place to be.
