Another Color Room Layout...

Hey friends!
I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter Holiday! Brother Matt came home for the weekend and the boys love spending time with him. I love seeing my little brother too. It was really nice to get together...

(OOOH! I had to stop my blog post for a minute to see Will and Kate kiss...they are adorable!)

I was lucky enough to be featured in The Color Room again. Prima sponsored the site all month long and it was so fun to participate in the challenges. The color palettes were beautiful and I highly recommend that you check it out. The inspiration is wonderful and so are all of the members-it's a very warm welcoming site.

And this is the palette I designed with. A mix of very bright colors that were inspired from some of Prima's newest releases. The sketch was really fun and can be interpreted in so many ways...




I stayed true to the sketch, adding strips of lace along the paper edges and layered papers to build up the background. All of the paper edges were inked and distressed. I did this with Vintage Photo Distress ink and my Tonic edge distresser. I also colored a 6x6 canvas refill page with Patina Glimmer Mist and added it to the background to showcase my photo. This is one of my favorite photos of my niece with my sister and brother inlaw...she is an amazing girl-I adore her!



I clustered the flowers together, adding leaves and Candy Gem sprays with crocheted button centers on the flowers. Then a sprinkle of pearls and rub ons surrounding them...


I ran a piece of ribbon through the grommets of the refill canvas page and filled it in with more flowers and other goodies. I have so much fun mixing and matching things together...I could spend hours doing it if I had the time....



So thats it for today! I have some Live with Prima classes coming up this month and I plan to share the projects with you soon! Thanks so much for stopping by-I appreciate it so much!

Have a great day!

xoxo Cari
