Challenge Ten

A new day, another challenge page to share from Shimelle Laine's scrapbooking weekend. I'm so glad I have until the rest of the weekend because I'm totally digging all these challenges and creating some pages that are making me happy.

That's always a good thing.

So...on with challenge ten, using two photos on a bold background. I went with a scraplift of a page by Jill Sprott that Shimelle shared, though I edited my original plan to create a bold background of my own with paint. I was on a bit of a schedule, so I chose a bold patterned paper instead, one from the Bo Bunny Forever Fall collection.

It rocked.

(Supplies: Patterned paper by Bo Bunny, K&Company, Studio Calico, Crate Paper and Basic Grey. Stickers by Bo Bunny, Jolee's, and K&Company. Clear die cut by Basic Grey. Leaf punch by EK Success. Gems by K&Company and Marcella by K. Paint by Adirondack. Spray ink by Glimmer Mist. Brown marker by SU. Glitter by Stickles. Letter stickers by Sassafras Lass.)

I went to my scrap basket for papers to coordinate and compliment with the bold background. Love how keeping the scraps in an accessible basket gets them onto pages. To add shine to the leaves and some splatters to the page, I mixed some gold paint with some gold Glimmer Mist for a splatterable consistency.

Here's a closer look at the title and journaling block:

All those yummy fall colors...*sigh* Makes me long for autumn!

Next up, challenge eleven...
