Color Inspiration Challenge #29



This is the first color inspiration challenge that I have used a scrapbook page. No fancy shmancy techniques, just good old fashioned scrappin'. I used actual scrap paper from envelopes and junk mail along with a tag from the Notebook paper pack and my colluzle cutting system to cut circles out of scrap paper, and the patterned turquoise paper is Martha Stewart. The printed circle paper is a really cool 'trash' piece from a school 'throw-away' box that I salvaged when I spotted its potential. I inked the edges of my purple paper with Smokey Plum ink.

This page is about my experience at a conference for art teachers. I was having a good time....

and I never seem to enter in the same challenges! We are always off a week. I actually wasn't going to do anything for this challenge, but it was thundering and windy so I stayed home from the playoff football game and needed a creative, stress reliever. Also, I love H&M I wish we had one here. Enjoy!
