Orange makes me happy:)
Ok, so I'm combining yesterday and today's creative exercises from Rhonna. It's the weekend, do you blame me?! Yesterday's challenge was to do a color study and today is a 10 minute layout. I thought about color all day, but didn't get around to making anything. When I saw today's challenge, I just went for it. Whatever was in my head...and at my fingertips. Wow was that fun... and to tell you the truth, I like it better than a lot of layouts that take me forever. It seems more "me" and it should, since I just played. What a concept:):) I'm also finding that I'm combining techniques that I did for the other challenges into the new ones. For instance, I went with more of these swirly things that I did on my doodling layout. They're a blast. I also used a chenille stem here, never done that before. Rhonna is genius. It was fun to just use what I have on hand since there's no time to dig. I have always loved this picture of Lowell and just stole it off the refrigerator door! I can also see other influences coming into play. Yesterday I was paging through Teesha Moore's new issue of Art and Life and maybe caught a bit of her vibe here as well. Love it!
I also just have to share this very cool, very retro-vintage Halloween kit from Paper Bella that Christi just told me about. Oooh la la...love it! There was another scrapbooking kit club that was going to have a vintage Halloween kit. I can't remember the name of it for the life of me. I know that the owner as a blog and I can't remember the company or the name of the person. Ugh! Ring any bells for anyone?
