I don't seem to get as many LO's done for The Color Room as I should these days! I know I should, but there is always something that kind of makes it difficult. I could actually insert the name of Ashton, to replace the word something in the previous sentence! LOL! This week I have been waiting on product to come through for some deadlines for Aussie Scrap Source and some product from Prima, soooooo, that freed up my week to create a LO for the Color Room! Plus I adored this palette!
As you can see it really was a delectibile palette! I create the background using one of Prima's Masks and spritzed it with a combination of of a yellow and pale pink Chalkboard Glimmermist by Tattered Angels. Once that was dry, I used a blue Distress ink and Prima text stamp, to randomly stamp some text across the background of my LO. It is quite subtle, but it is there!
The decorative half circle elements were cut using a cricut machine - the damasks cartridge, compliments of my friend Lorraine, since I don't have a cricut machine. In fact it was my eldest son Lachlan who LOVED cutting things using the machine, he stationed himself at it and worked out how to use it and then cut lots of these gorgeous damask circles in different sizes for me, seeing how many he could cut to one sheet of white cardstock!
Tags have been customised using a Prima stamp, some versa mark pigment ink in yellow and then heat embossed with clear embossing powder, for a wonderful pop of colour and texture. The only other thing I did was to print off a couple of digital stamps onto transparency to use on this LO as well. So now you pretty much know the anatomy of this LO!!
Now.....You know it has been a while since you have taken some photographs when your daughter comes out asking "Mummy can you take some photos of me?" Seriously, how could I resist such a request!! Besides I was feeling like some new pictures to inspire me!!
Honestly I kind of gasped out loud when I saw this picture of Kaitlyn!! Firslty, how did she grow up so fast (but having said that, she has not yet turned 4). Second, how on earth did she end up so insanely gorgeous? She is like a little tyke supermodel! LOL. Well in my Mummy opinion she is stunningly beautiful.
As you can see I have a LOT of beautiful pictures of my little girl to choose from!! I edited them in both colour and black and white, but the colour version is so rich with colour, I think i like those versions the most.
Dont worry, Kaitlyn was not the only child who had a couple of photos taken, the little rascal came out to get in on the action!!
Like I said, he is a bit of a rascal!!
Don't be fooled by the serene look on his face here, I am sure he is cultivating some sort of mischief in his mind! People comment to me how cute he is and I have a standard response, "cute to look at, difficult to raise"!! LOL! Sums him up oh so well. Please note the clever cropping of these images hides his moth eaten hair! I need to give him a hair cut this week to lessen the visibility of his patchiness on his hair! LOL!
I took several more pictures the day before I took these ones, some gorgeous sequence shots of Kaitlyn blowing away the fluffy blooms that a dandelion flower leaves behind after it has finished flowering. So cute, but I will share those in my next post, don't want to give you picture overload in one post! LOL! Thanks for stopping by!
