The background is jumping out but in reality its quite subtle, funny how colours are interpreted in cameras! Bit disappointing!

These colours were definitely a challenge !
I chose the photos because they suited the testimony but the colours in them seemed to be wrong! But I am happy with the outcome!
By using the peanut brown as my main colour and keeping the red and yellow as highlights. The 2 pale greys were tricky, so I found the word 'together' and the vellum looked grey!
Something fuzzy ( wool fabric in the flower)
My mum is 85 and cotinues to grow the most luscious beans every Autumn,
Her great grandson is loving the experience!

For my evidence I chose 3
Testimony is about a summer activity and I wrote it by hand
My friend and I having been meeting up at Junee for years now during the school holidays.
Getting our kids together for lots of fun times.
This time we met at the train station since the temperature was hovering up around 38-40 degrees Celsius (100 Fahrenheit)
Too hot for outdoor activities !
We thoroughly enjoyed the nostalgic old building and the delicious cafe!

The photos are about the TREES not the embellishments !
My son is always taking the opportunity to lie down and he couldn't pass this one!!!
When I asked what title do I use, this was his answer!
I couldn't resist using this range
Zip-a-dee doodle from Bo Bunny.
Looks fun and youthful!

Polaroid, brads, Simple Stories (heart, today, arrow, chipboard)
I have had these Polaroids from Kaiserkraft and not known what to do with them! So I turned them upside and put the coordinating papers from the Lilac Whisper range https://www.kaisercraft.com.au in them.
The brads have been in my stash for possibly 10 years!
For the inspiration and challenge!!

Such a fun colour palette!!
I have so many fun memories visiting this amazing place in Wanaka New Zealand!
I created a scallop border, used a checkerboard paper background, added some triangles and scattered my journaling around the page.
I also used stuck sketches

I used water colour with a stencil from Kaisercraft
to do the triangles stencil work I Colourblast sunshine paste
I used a Martha Stewart punch with some old book pages to create decorative borders and sprayed with Tim holtz distress inks
And of ccourse string
My home made flower is a ric rac trim cut off an old childs dress, spiralled.
I wrote on a journaling spot but also included the word hello and happiness!
