Project 12 - May Layout

I really liked the sketch for the May layout for Project 12. It had space for 2 regular sized 4"x6" photos which I like. I don't always like cutting down photos so this was great. Here's the sketch we had to work from.

Isn't it great?!
So I used the same papers as I have used for this project so far. My pictures had a lot of red, green and blue in them, but the papers I had to work with weren't necessarily those colours so I had a bit of trouble deciding which ones to use. I think it worked out ok in the end though. What do you think?

I added two Porta Craft chipboard embellishments on the right hand page. I painted them with Twinkling H2Os. These have been around for a while now, but I have only just discovered them. They're great for painting chipboard, and I love the sparkle they add. The embellishment I used on the left hand page is from the paper kit. I mounted it with foam tape, just like I did with the title letters. I also used some purple grosgrain ribbon from my stash. I would have liked to use some ric rac as in the sketch but I didn't have any. :(

Here are some pictures of the individual pages of the layout.

and some closeups too:

Till next time then, happy days!

Francine ... I love looking at your work too; you always have such balance in your work! I think the colours worked out fine on this layout! And .... I answered your question about the spinner on my blog for you ;-) ...

I love your tone on tone work with this layout this month. The fluorishes are great here and I like how you made the circle element lighter than the patterned paper rather than darker as in the sketch.

Thanks for playing along!
