Eyes of Blue

For the thrid Color Room challenge I created this page using the color pallet lime green, periwinkle, and turquoise. Now if you know me at all or you have seen my work I am just not a pastel sort of girl. If I use pastels I usually add black, brown or grey some where in the mix. I just can not help it! I love strong color. Which is not to say that I live with strong colors in my house or even wear strong colors. I love black! I have tons of clothes in black. I would have black hair if my physical coloring allowed it.  But any way....... there goes that gap brain off on a tangent.

So these pages were created for The Color Room challenge #3  http://thecolorroom.ning.com/
For these challenges I used some of the prodcuts that I won in January from Creative Imaginations. I was selected to be the guest Designer for the month of April.

The first page I used some of the new Luminart mica  to color the cardboard behind the photo. Photo is of my daughter who had her 26th birthday last week. She said at work they all tried guessing her age and the guesses ranged from 21-24. I told her one day she would be happy for that blessing!

The paper is Basic Grey, Websters and October Afternoon. K and Co, Lux Design, with a Creative Imaginations rub on and a little Hambly thrown in. The black is Prima cut from a feltie. I painted the cardboard with Luminarte Mica's for an intense color. My daughter is the baby of the family and the only one married. She and her husband are both still in college.  She came by tovist tonight and I forgot how much I miss having her around.

 This is my niece Michaela and I am so proud of her  and her sister they are the first  athletic woman in our family.
I would be surprised if Michaela is 5' tall, but who am I to talk I am only 5'1" tall. Any way she plays Lacrosse, coaches Lacrosse for younger children, is a cheerleader and a gymnist. Her talents amaze me.

But let me tell you about this tag. I used Creative Imaginations foils in Blues and Helmar adhesives to create it.

For this  page I created the tag using Creative Imaginations and Helmar products. The blue dots on the tag are Helmar Zap Dots that I pressed Creative Imaginations shades of blue foils in to the glue dots. The edges of the tag are self adhesive dry wall tape that I ran a Helmar permament adhesive runner over. I then  pressed multiple colors of Creative Imaginations blue foil in to the glue. For the Maya Road Bird house I coated the entire cage with the Helmar permament adhesive runner and then pressed the copper foil in to the the bird cage making sure to cover the sides of the cage. This was a really fun project and added a fun embellishment to the scrapbook page.

Stay tuned as I get more adventerous with the foils.
