BELIEVE in Fairy Tales - Color Combos Galore

Before I begin, I have some AWESOME news to share!  I have been playing at Color Combos Galore NING site for the past month and have been loving the color palettes and challenging myself to use color combinations that would not come naturally to me.  AND since I have been playing along, I got a nice pat on the back and was asked to become part of their amazing Design Team!  I am beyond excited to be a part of it!

Yesterday, a new color palette (#148) was revealed and here is my take:




I took some light blue stickles and dressed up the photo a bit to make it more fairy tale like.  Nothing screams fairy tales like SPARKLES!   I stamped the "Once upon a time" stamp from a CHF stamp set that I had designed a couple years ago.  That scallop is Cappella from Basic Grey.


I wanted to keep with the theme of fairy tales and PRINT, so I stamped some script on the lavender cardstock (Unity Stamp Co), and some Vintage Text from CHF on the BELIEVE.  Those cute brads are from The Paper Studio - aren't they adorable?  The flowers are an older set from PRIMA, and I applied some stickles to the leaves.


YEARS ago, I bought some hinges at Lee Valley for projects, and I never used them.  This project called for hinges!  I wanted to create that book feeling even more, so applied this HEAVY hinge, and applied some gold stickles for a nice whimsical effect.



Thanks for stopping by and have a GREAT weekend!

I love this page! Everything flows together so well. The glitter and clasp really adds to your theme and the papers are so pretty with the edge rolled up. Great work!
