Play Date Cafe Challenge 67

Left it a bit late this week as I was stuck for inspiration! Beautiful colours, I just did not have a clue as what to do! Well, this morning I told myself "It's a challenge, rise to it!" So I ended up doing this journal page. The Jury is still out on it but still, I used the colours!



For the left hand page I used embossed strips of all the colours and framed them in blue. ( To show that our lives are a patchwork of experiences that together make up who we are) On the right hand side I used three of the colours to create my page for writing. The felt butterfly is from Papermania. Everything ended up with a dusting of Aged Mahogany distress ink....
Oh well,  I was definately challenged! Whether successful or not remains to be seen!
Be blessed today

I love how you gave your strips texture before you weaved them - it's such a neat effect. Way to go in giving the colors a try. Glad to have you bringing your own spin into The Play Date Cafe.

Love that collage type design, so eye catching! That butterfly is just perfect in it's sweet delicateness and awesome use of our colors, too! Great project, Neil, glad to see it over in the Play Date Cafe site!
