Going Down (Mount Fuji)

Scrappy Monday, y'all.  I worked on a scrapbook layout over the weekend that I wanted to share today, but I haven't gotten the journaling done on it yet so instead I'm sharing the last of the Mount Fuji pages (see the other three layouts here, here, and here).

So there it is, our return trip down the dread mountain.  I've never been a big fan of Bravo Burgundy, but to my everlasting surprise it really, really worked for these the photo above to see it bigger and look at the red tones in the landscape pictures.  Anyway, when I got out my very dusty Bravo Burgundy ink pad for this layout, I opened it up and found...

The Dreaded Gold Sheen.  This is an older felt-style ink pad; I've also had gold sheen on Raspberry Ripple and Riding Hood Red, and I think my one-year-old Cherry Cobbler has a slight case of it too.  For some reason it usually affects the reds.  Anyway, I'm not really sure how to get rid of it, and I heard that it could be contagious (like, if you ink up a stamp with a gold sheen ink pad, and then clean it on your stampin' scrub, the gold sheen sits on that and could theoretically infect other ink pads if you clean a stamp and then immediately ink it up with another color).  So anyway, I made my layout work without Bravo Burgundy ink (though I suppose I could have used a BB marker).

Title banner in Garden Green and Early Espresso.  I love the Jayne's Type Alphabet.

My final Fuji color palette:  Bravo Burgundy, So Saffron, Garden Green, Wild Wasabi, Tip Top Taupe, and Early Espresso.  Who knew I'd use Bravo Burgundy on a scrapbook layout and like it?

Well, I think I'll try to take my doglets for a walk for the first time since Snowmageddon.  Sadie may explode with joy, so wish me luck...cheers, y'all!
