Over the rainbow ...

As you might already know, or have guessed, I love colour. Bright colours, happy colours, many colours, mixed colours.  I rarely work with a black and white photo for example, I just love colour too much!

 So, when I saw the inspiration layout at the Australian Scrapjacked Studio, I really really wanted to give it a go. I wanted to try that drippy look - so out of my comfort zone, but strangely intriguing just the same.  My page is a little on the conservative side,  I was a little wary of wrecking the drips I had, so I didn't do any more.  In hindsight (being 20/20 as it is), I could have done more, but as my first attempt, I'm pretty happy with the way it is :-).


I added a few more bits and pieces to my cluster at the top ...

Even painting a chippy flourish, coordinating it to my rainbow of colours :-)

What a fun challenge!  I really did enjoy it  :-)

I have lots more to share with you soon!  I had a wonderful scrappy weekend!!

Thanks for visiting and have a great week :-)
