Add some color!

Pretty much everywhere it's a bit dreary looking in January, so let's add a splash of color to our layouts. Also my photos for this page were a bit dull in color and I wanted to make them look as exciting as I was when we took them. I used the vibrant papers from Heidi Swapp September Skies collection and then added more color to the little wood chip shapes and the water color paper words using various colors of mist.

Supplies: Patterned Paper (Heidi Swapp September Skies Open Air), (Heidi Swapp September Skies Midnight Shadows), (Heidi Swapp September Skies Light Spectrum), Chipboard Alphas (Dear Lizzy Serendipity Soar Woodgrain Letter Stickers), Die Cuts (Dear Lizzy Serendipity Water Color Words) Paper Clips (Freckled Fawn Aqua Arrow Clips), Wood Veneer (Freckled Fawn Stars & Such Wood Chips), Labels (Gossamer Blue Gramercy Road Skinny Labels), Mist or paint

I have to point out that these Dear Lizzy Water Color Words are wonderful because they do not warp even if you spray them alot or use a heat tool to dry them quickly. Of course you can use your mists or paint on all of your wood veneers, but I wanted a sprinkle of different colors like confetti so I used the Stars &Such Wood Chips. 


The cheerful stip of floral paper down the side of the page immediately brightens the page and fussy cutting a flower to add layered under the title ties it all together.

Wow Susan this page is so gorgeous! Love the white and brights together and the title cluster is adorable. Those watercolour letters are my new must haves! TFS. xx
