Hebs 2014

Enjoying another challenge 


This is what I created 

This photo is from our trip to the Outer Hebrides - We were just pulling up at Scuribhal Campsite when I looked out of the window when I saw our cyles (which were attached to the roof) casting shadows but with this lovely view in the background.  I could resist taking a quick snap.

I really enjoyed making this layout and it just sort of evolved as it went along as apposed to me know what I am going to do ahead of time.
---

Colour Stories Inspiration case file that I used
Evidence: Text Print, Floral Pattern, Butterflies, Leaves, Wet Medium (Moulding Paste), Wings.

Testimony: Document a solitary pleasure

Scheme: All colours used
----

Show us your Stuff prompt I used
 The shapes I needed to include on my layout were - a square, a rectangle, bunting, a circle, a banner, a splash of paint or ink and of course, a handmade item. (It's not as hard as it may sound!) Each one of these items must be used at least once, and must be clearly visible. 

Square = Photogrpah
Rectangle = Seaside and Wayside 
Bunting = Hebs (title)
Circle = centre of butterfly
Banner = Scuribhal (subtitle)
Paint = used on butterflies and flower detail in bottom left corner 
Handmade item = cut flower shape from tissue used to blot stencil
