Do any of you out there have withdrawals and get TOTALLY grumpified if you haven't scrapped in a while!! Sheesh!! I have been moody as all heck ... until yesterday :-).
Here is the latest CSI challenge as well as a DEEEvine sketch from EmGem. I love her work. I really do. Always totally unique.
Scheme : Check (you have to look carefully for the celadon green, but it's there! promise!)
Evidence : flowers, metal (eyelets), grid pattern, tag, leaves
Testimony : I downloaded the 501 prompts and decided to go with a Haiku
A beautiful day
The sky is Autumn Blue
A flash of orange - a Butterfly!
Gently it flits
From bloom to bloom
Stopping only for a drink of nectar
So pretty to watch
As it floats on a breeze
Gently taking it to new heights
Such a pleasure to observe
Mother Nature at play
Beautifying our World
So if any of you "know" me by now - you'd know that orange is not my friend. The two of us, we just don't get along. However, I really liked the shade of orange in this scheme ... and you know what, it all just works so well.
So this is what I came up with for this challenge.
For my last few LO's I've not been in the "mood" to do too much Mixed Media. I really actually just want to get to a place where I'm more comfortable in it and not just making a hot mess! So the only wet medium here is a light spritz of white mist in the bottom right corner.
I REALLY enjoyed doing this LO. Here are some close ups.
Mad, mad, MAD about those resin flowers! They are so pretty!!! The leaves behind it is a strip of ribbon (which I'd previously won via CSI!). It is in this image where you can see the celadon green leaf design on the white paper.
I wanted the titling to pop out, so I drew on it randomly with a gold gel pen.
These tiny pegs do my head in! Cuteness! These I sprayed with Dazzles. You can't see it in the image, but they are wonderfully sparkly.
Thanks so much for stopping by - and for leaving comments. I'm terrible at that; I read ALL your blogs in my Bloglovin feed, but I rarely comment. SUCH bad manners!!
