Hello Cows

Black & White, Red & Green

Good news friends! I finally figured out how on turn on comments. Is it obvous I'm a novice blogger? Now you can drop me a line if you so choose. I look forward to hearing from my fellow scrappers!

While others are scrapping pictures of their loved ones opening presents and other holiday events, my page this week features...cows. Why not? These photos were taken in Big Sur during our Summer vacation. The background is hazy and smokey because much of the local forest was burning in one of the year's biggest wildfires! We weren't in any danger and neither were the cows, but many of the state parks were closed, forcing us to find other things to take pictures of cows.

I started with a subtle green textured paper from K & Company's Color Basics Imbue pad. A black and white damask print with a red mat made for great contrast. Embellishments like buttons, mini star brads and black adhesive dots tied the page together.

The layout and color palette were both inspired by Color, Story, Inspiration's 219th case file. It's definitely a Christmasy collection of colors but I put a spin on it by not featuring any sort of holiday theme at all. I turned the sketch 90 degrees to better fit my photos.
