I played at the Color Room again

Last weeks palette was perfect for these beach photos from my sisters Mexican holiday.  I couldn't get the right side to lighten up to match the left side, but you get the idea.

And the palette.  I used the sketch flipped on it's side and stretched over a two pager.

Staying Cool for the Color Room scrapbook challenge

My sister sent me photos of their last holiday in Mexico to scrap.  Here's the first of them all playing in the resort pool.  No journaling because I need to get her to do that part.

I hope she likes it.  The first holiday album I did for her had much cleaner lines.  But that was almost 3 years ago and I'm really enjoying playing with my masks and spray inks.  I used a Heidi Swapp hibiscus mask for this layout.  Sprayed it with pink Glimmer mist.  Then I found an old package of HS hibiscus rubons so I layered them on top of the misting.  They must have been past their 'use by' date because they didn't go on very easily.

The baby blue vellum I wet, scrunched up, then laid flat to dry. I edged it with light blue stickles and then sprinkled a little dark blue glitter on top of that.

The patterned paper is Karen Foster.

The colour combination was from this weeks #56 Color Room pallette.
