Live Colorfully

The Attraction for me with this challenge from Show Us Your Stuff was the colours. I was inspired by the beautiful colours from the dream catcher  and the bird and I also used the black and white from the zebra for shadowing the butterflies. I inked, stamped  and die cut the butterflies and also die cut the skeleton leaf. I brought out some of the beautiful colours with the spray of flowers and the twine. By keeping the page fresh and clean highlighted the happy and summery look of the photo.  
While appearing simple the page has a lot of elements in it. I hope you enjoyed looking at my page. Happy Scrapping.  Heather B.

This months challenge for the 123 Scrapbook challenge is to use the colour olive, distressing and the word Adventure. I have a lovely series of photo's of Chloe's wonderful adventure in Asia. As a three year old she backpacked for six weeks through various Asian countries with Mum and Dad. This photo is when she looked at the local Fishermans hand made "boat".....I am sure that there is a more proper name that the locals call them. Olive is an unusual colour but once I started to work with it I really enjoyed the contrast against the white background  that I like using. A bit of distressing and inking around the edges roughed it up. I am a flower lover....both on my pages and in my just a couple of daisies that I spritzed was my allowance  and then I used green leaves to add further embellishment. In the middle of this my beautiful grandson came in and presented me with a flower from my garden. How beautiful! "Here you are Grandma. I thought that you might like it." Anyway back to the page. I also used a Kaisercraft stencil to add a little detail to the background using Jo Sonja craft paint in Olive. I then used the same paint to colour a die cut. And then I gave a light spritz all over. And done.    
I think that I may actually be getting the hang of this I Pad thingy.  Because I have just managed to do this blog with only one little hissy fit. No tearing the hair out, no tantrum. All good. I hope you enjoy my page and Happy Scrapping. Heather B.
