Color Combos 185, Carefree.

This is what I would like to share with you on this rainy morning!
It is my take on this weeks challenge at Color Combos Galore . I really loved both the colours and the design prompt this week.

 I often like to do a lot of distressing on my pages. I find that spraying them. or immersing them quickly in water makes them more 'pliable'. When they dry they have a lot of patina so to speak. - And a lot of texture.
The picture is just a random one from everyday life. My youngest playing happily in the garden last Summer

This challenge is now live at CCG and you have until March 30th to post your take. You can choose to do the designer challenge too, which is to use bold print. So many lovely to choose from!

My bold print is a patterned paper from October Afternoon.

In the closeup you can see what happens when you get rough with your paper. I love the little bursts of is such a happy happy colour!

I used a stapler to make the lace trail along the upper edge. I did not glue down the border as I wanted it to feel loose and free. Afterall the title is 'Carefree'!

Some more closeups coming up:
