Floating

I love challenges, as they make me think out of the box and go out of my comfort zone. I rarely scrap with black background, so the basic idea at Black With Two is very challenging for me. I really loved this month's challenge there, with the beautiful inspiration mood and the fab inspiration by the DT, so I decided to give it a try. Here's the moodboard:

I've just found a new (to me) challenge blog, Off the Rails Scrapbooking, and my lo just fits to their current challenge, which is 'paint, sprays, ink, etc.', I used gesso, mist, embossing ink and embossing powder to create the background.
For this layout I used my Jan Counterfeit Kit. The photos are of my youngest, floating in the sweeming pool on our vacation, about 1.5 Y ago.
Here are close-ups on the details:


Thank you for taking the time and visiting my blog. I appreciate your comments very much.
אני כמעט שלא משתמשת בקארדסטוק שחור כבסיס, אבל מצד שני אני מאד אוהבת אתגרים, הם מביאים אותי לחשוב 'מחוץ לקופסא' ולצאת מאזור הנוחות שלי. כזה הוא האתגר ב-Black With Two, שהעקרון הבסיסי בו הוא קארדסטוק שחור לבסיס, שני צבעים מוכתבים נוספים ועוד קריטריונים משתנים. אהבתי את השילוב של הצבעים בחודש הזה והשתמשתי בקיט החיקוי שלי לחודש ינואר.
תודה שקפצתן לבקר ואתן יותר ממוזמנות להשאיר תגובה......
