Color Combos Galore 189

This weeks palette was all about pastels and shimmer, can't say pastels are my favourite colors so I had to dig deep for this one. The picture I decided to use was one of my DD's, back in the day when they had basinettes. I think my mum must have taken this photo while she was babysitting.

Unfortunately it has rained all Easter here so the photo does not show any of the colours or the shimmer from the Tattered Angels. I have listed products below.

I decided to go with a Kraft background from Hambley. Patterned papers are Fancy Pants, Imaginisce and K & Company. I matted my photo on some Basic Grey flat cardstock which was a very pale pink which is what the color code was, but after I Glimmer misted it looks more pink rather than Chicky Pink. I framed around the photo using Magic Dotti that I also glimmer misted using Cherub Pink this seemed more of a match for the Chicky Pink I then overlayed with the Robins Egg blue and stitched it all down. The word Months is from Li'l Davis glitter range I also inked with a blue and the chipboard number 3 was glimmer misted along with the Dusty Attic swirls.

Flowers are from Prima, the large ones are a very pale peach color and the others seemed to match the Pink Chicky.

Thanks for looking and for any comments that you may leave. Hope you enjoyed checking out my pages for this week.

Pin It!


  1. Hey! have to ask what Magic Dotti is?! whatever it is, it looks darling around the photo! my my she was really itty bitty at the time. Really really cute layout, love all the misting and sweet details! xx

  2. Just beautiful and I was pretty excited to see that you used the dottie mesh under the paper for the frame because I love the look. I may have to "borrow" that idea.

  3. This one was totally stunning. Love what you did with the letters, the embossing and the flowers - basically that's the whole layout!! Gorgeous :)
