NZ Dare LO

Well, I actually managed to get this one done on time. I had no idea when the deadline actually was - all the days seem to blend in together at the moment. But the idea of a black and white layout with one colour was haunting my imagination. And also the idea of adding colour to an already printed black and white photo was simmering away there too.

So - I have no black and white patterned paper, but I found these yummy ribbons I've been hoarding for some time now. I had to drag out and dust off my water colour pencils to find just the right shade of blue to add to the photo - I mixed the 'paint' on a scrap first then painted it on the photo with a dryish brush. Quite pleased with the results - will have to do it again sometime.

And I'm back to beads and dimensional magic again - love playing with beads but I think it's time to stock up the bead supply again!

Well, anyway - I had fun, thanks for the dare!

oh i like that. Love how you journalled on the brackets and used the doiley and the effect of the water being blue. Great layout.

Love the idea of painting a little on the pic - brilliant idea.
