These colours are just perfect to share with you one of my favorite photos from our recent trip to NZ
I went there with a bus load of friends over 30 years ago and I was totally over whelmed with this gorgeous sight then. I hope this page describes the excitement I experienced as I was able to see them again, and especially sharing it with my daughter!
It had been raining but at this magical moment it stoped long enough for me to get theze photos!
I chose to use hearts, clouds, flowers and my story was put in list form!
Bright colours for February, I think we all need that!
I really enjoy using a dark background. It is navy but looks lighter!
Gingham fabric, ribbons, pleated some fabric under the word wonderful.
Transparent stickers on my title, mounted on yellow to pop.
Clouds to add to the atmosphere! A few scallops tucked under the photos and of course the loopy string!
I decided to use speech bubbles but also incorporated the inspiration in story.
Just made it to share in this months on-your-bike-january-challenge at http://kraftpluschallenges.blogspot.com.au/2016/12/on-your-bike-january-challenge.html
Holiday time and been away.
This is an original photo, so quality is poor but it was my first thought when I saw this challenge. I was a little girl busy building cubby houses with the excess bricks from the new house we moved into in 1968. My little tricycle looks a little overloaded!
It's so much fun experimenting with the colour scheme Debbi gives us each challenge!
Do you want to know how we choose the colours?
I find the best hint is to choose 2 main colours that will dominate the page but particularly compliments your photo. Then add third colour using a little less of it then highlight the other 2 colours in small amounts, for example I used chocolate in a tag and "ME"
As you can see none of the colours are in these photos but that makes them stand out.
They were taken with a film camera about 2004 and they have some light flaws but I was able to use embellishments to hide them.
