An earthy combo at Color Combos Galore using Hambly and woodgrain.
I can't believe it has been almost a week since my last post,...Where did time go?
This week at CCG the colours are tones of brown and tan with a burst of amber orange. The colours look very lovely together but I will admit that I had great difficulty going through my extensive stash looking for anything that would match the combo. I pulled out everything that would work and just added it all to my page.
Rummaging through my stash I found I have little brown and little or no orange. I realized I am more of a pink, green, teal,and cream girl.
But this is how my page turned out anyway;
The designer challenge said use for example woodgrain and lined paper which I did. I used a piece of transparency by Hambly tht had a woodgrain pattern. I bought two but have still been hoarding them. They are so pretty. For the middle photo mat I used a paper from DCWV that has the pattern of a tree trunk.My journaling was written on some graph/lined paper from Prima arketing.
I had to use a lot of editing on this and the contrast I applied made my page look a little lighter than in real life.
And this is the Inspiration Board for this week;
And then the customary close ups;
I put a lot of my embellishments down the side layered on top of the transparency. The round spots are made with a Spellbinders die.
I love to use a sepia or black/white photo with these kinds of colours. It can be difficult to find a suitable photo otherwise. I used Webster's Pages letter stickers for my title.
The photo was taken in Provence this Summer when Beatrice and I went for a walk and we had our own little photo shoot. We took a lot of nice photos and had a lot of fun until my memory card was completely full and it was time to walk home for a new one.
I hope you enjoyed looking at what I have been up to.
And a report on my computer,... As Monty Python would say IT IS NO MORE, it is completely deceased like the dead parrot.My two beautiful memory drives that were for all my photos had been ruined by lightning. When the nice computer repair man tried to replace them with a new one that one broke as well. So we have mutually decided that I have to make a change. Fortunately I made a copy of my pics in the eleventh hour and fingers crossed I got all of them. I have not been able to check yet. Now I am on the look for a new PC.
I am blogging (far too seldom, though) on Alexandra's laptop, but editing and posting on the laptop takes me FOREVER,...it does ...really!
Hope you are all enjoying your week end.
Bye for now!
