A Serene, Harmonious Palette {at CCG}

Challenge 203 is up at Color Combos Galore, and what a lovely Inspiration Board we have this week:

And I just happened to have this picture of me looking for seaglass and Farzad patiently indulging me, so this page was born. It's going into my book called "Reasons," where I document all the little reasons I love my husband so much!

I got a little carried away adding stuff to my page. (And believe me, there's a pile of stuff on my scrap desk that I wanted to add but didn't fit). Most of the stuff on my page is pretty old. I was so happy to use some of the probably hundreds of sheets of vellum in my stash.

Here are some details. The vellum clocks came from a sheet of Rebecca Sowers Attic Collection patterned vellum (that shows you how old that is!). That little "Simple Stories" bit was cut form the tear strip of a patterned paper. That brown textured paper is also really old. I bought it at an art store years and years ago. My letter stickers are by BasicGrey and Webster's Pages. The colors matched the palette pretty closely. I did some scribbly pen work on the  BasicGrey letters.

I love those white stem-looking patterns from an old Making Memories paper. I'm going to be sad when I run out of that paper. The seahorse was trimmed from a Webster's Pages paper. The netting tucked in between the layers is from a Webster's Pages bloomers trim. I added that charm to the stamped frame at the last minute, as well as the real starfish and sand dollar. The frame stamp is by Glitz Designs.

Those shell images come from a Creative Imaginations paper. The border stamp is by Kaiser Craft.

The patterned papers I used are from a Die Cuts With a View pad. Here you can see I added some water droplets by using Glossy Accents. I think I might add some more. You can also see that the aqua vellum is patterned--it has a watery pattern on it that was perfect for this challenge.

HEre you can see the silver charm a little better. That "Seaside Avenue" bit is from a Making Memories patterned paper.

Go take a look at the gorgeous work the rest of the team made, and I do hope you'll play along with us! If you've never tried our challenge, you must give it a whirl! It's so fun!

Thank you so much for stopping by my blog and reading about my page!
