CCC 190 Sleepy - May 2011
We are wrapping up our month-long April Showers theme with a delightful image that inspired a soft, lovely palette and a topic-focused Designer's Challenge: Create a project that focuses on siblings or pets.
With 3 cats in the household, I immediately chose to focus on pets. Don't think I have any pics of my brother and I that are worth scrapping.
As you can see, I am once again into printing the photo on canvas. With a sleepy cat like our old Bettie having a nap in the sun, the image turned out wonderfully hazy. The inspirational photo inspired me to use soft and hazy tones and textures in my page.
The papers are mainly Prima Jack and Jill, I used 2 of the same pps so that I could cut out a frame that I mounted on top of the other pp. I had seen a layout by Gerry v Gent in which she used Gesso mixed with "sand" applied as extra texture. I had an old jar of something called "snowpaint", cannot even remember what I had planned to use it for. It has the same texture. That's the thick, rough white inner frame that goes around the page.
The yellow is TA mist in Lemon Grass, different green and chestnut chalks used on the frame and matting. Everything in the cluster is from Prima.
That's all folks! Thank you so very very much for your visit! It would make my day if you would want to leave any comment! Todeloo! xxx
