CR84FN53


Hi there and welcome! I'm back today to play along with the current CR84FN Color Challenge and our main colors are pink, aqua and neutral. My original intent was to make a wall hanging but I changed course and decided to capture memories of motherhood, in honor of Mother's Day, in this mini photo album instead. This is a page I created with a photo of my mom and me which I printed in black and white. The fabulous inspiration photo definitely sparked my creative spirit and I can't wait to finish my project.



I began by cutting a piece of recycled cardboard to use as a base and decided on aqua which brought in a key main color. Next I randomly stamped distressed dots for texture and after adding my next layers I added rub-ons. The edges were softened with pink ink and I die cut a doily to bring in pink as a main color. A distressed dp and an aqua/cream label, which was a gift from Emma's Paperie, works with my main colors and both have a vintage feel to them. The kraft tag & chipboard scroll were painted with acrylic paint and together with the lock they add some dimension. The paper flowers & rose cabochons accent the page in the challenge colors and two Bonjour butterfly stickers bring in a touch of spring. Some fussy cutting on the pink text butterfly, a few rub-ons and T!ms's Chitchat Stickers which I distressed finished my project. I am not sure how I want to orientate my album {top or side} so I'm holding off on punching the holes just yet. In the coming pages I hope to add some homemade touches through handmade flowers, the possibilities are endless. ;)

Sorry for being MIA lately, I traveled out of town last week and caught a nasty cold along the way. A big welcome to my newest blog followers and I'll be by to visit everyone soon & leave a sweet comment. Have a super day!

L1, It's beyond delightful. I almost cried when I saw that wonderful picture of you and your mother. The page would have been exquisite without anything else, but OH MY WORD, the embellies are superb. I love all the acrylic painting and the layers of texture. You have nailed the challenge to a T. ALSO, WOW....I've never thought to flip an album to hang differently. That is so unique....thank you for the spur of creativeness you've given me. :)
I do hope you're feeling better VERY soon.
Hugs to you my friend,
L2

How wonderful is that picture?! While there is this gorgeous vintage style feeling to this page, we all know you are not nearly old enough to be classified as part of a vintage project, so I will just call it classically wonderful! Gorgeous embellishments! Hope you are feeling much better now!
