Color Combos Galore - 195

Loved this weeks vibrant colours, and couldn't resist using some pictures I have of my DS when he was packed ready to go on his longest camp yet. The colours worked perfectly and I thought the inspiration prompt for using a Hot Air Balloon also worked in perfectly. Camps are all about being adventerous and exploring new things, which is exactly what these kids do when they go on camps. I wanted a really fun happy feel to this page.

As usual I used a real mix of everything for this page starting with the Jenni Bowlin Textured core-dinations cardstock and Fancy Pants Block Party papers. Stickers are from Hambly and Echo Park. I Gesso'd the background and then sanded, a Matha Stewart border punch was used and I have raised quite a few of my stickers and cut outs. Thanks for looking and thank you for any of your comments that you may leave they are always welcome.

  1. I'm so digging that "black" background on this, v.s. the white we've all been using. It's always tickles me to see what your little twisted mind comes up with for these challenges! :D lol

  2. These colours are awsome for boys pages. I did not think about that before.
    Love how you distressed the pps so the dots stand out more. The paint is a great touch and the tearing and wearing of the papers to give them a torn look goes well with the overall feel and theme of the page. Gorgeous work again Fi.

  3. What a coincidence Fi... I just did a LO on Black background PP too...

    I love the dramatic look of the black!!! the colors and paints... just pops... Awesome... TFS ...hugs...xoxo

  4. This is absolutely stunning!!! I adore your background...and the colours really pop against the dark colour. There are just so many funky details to look have done a superb job of this challenge. :)

  5. Just gorgeous, Fi! Love how you painted the cardstock, and all the colorful details and layers are just so striking against the dark background. Fab design, as always!

  6. SO ideal for the challenge & that darker background works fantastically with the gesso!!
