I think I might melt in this summer heat, Alabama is a lot warmer than England! So today's layout is helping me think cool thoughts. First of all though, check out the color palette!
I know I've talked about it before, but I made myself a book with cardstock swatches of every single SU! color (including the retired ones), and when I work on a new scrapbook layout, I like to pull out the pictures and lay out some color swatches until I get a combination I like. So up above is the color palette for today's scrapbook pages, and here's the finished product:
Whee! I like it. I saw someone else's scrapbook page with pink as the main color for a snowy layout, so I thought I'd give it a shot. I've never been overly fond of Blushing Bride, but it's growing on me. I did like how it looked with the "cool" colors of Tempting Turquoise, Pear Pizzazz, and Smoky Slate.
Close-up of my title and some white snowflakes. I could have left that spot plain, and I do like white space, but it felt trapped there in the center of the layout so I did the snowflakes. I have a tendency sometimes to fill every available bit of space with *something* to look at.
And there's one of the snowflake medallions, which covers up if my photos don't meet exactly straight right there ; ) Maybe I'm a little OCD, but the layout did need a few accents so that accomplished two objectives at once.
Thanks for stopping by, and think cool thoughts!
