Week 17 - Project Life 2013

Now those that know me, know that I struggle working with any shade/hue/tint of purple. I guess it's been my most disliked colour since I was very young and having a cousin who was absolutely obsessed with purple. Everything she had and owned was purple.
I don't mind lilac's and mauve's depending on what the item is as those colours remind me of Granny's and old gardens.

But, with this spread I had a lot of photos of my daughter with the purple jacket on and so I just had to use those colours.
I really liked how it turned out with the mint green, blue and white accompanying the purple. 

WEEK 17

WEEK 17 left
I actually had a bit of fun creating the Week 17 title card for this spread.  I don't own much, if anything purple, but I was on a retreat and could count on one gorgeous friend to have loads of purple. So I borrowed her purple/lilac/mauve ink pad, cut out some holes from some cardstock and used it as a stencil with the mint, blue and purple ink pads. Then I used some sequin waste for the smaller circles.
The top middle photo is of my daughter bag/case packing skills and what she thought was more important. She packed her ponies and teddies and 10 pairs of undies and socks. Hahaha
The bottom photo (I'm not sure if you can see it really well) is clouds but with a rainbow coloured cloud. I thought it was my sunglasses giving that effect, but when I took them off, the colours were still in the cloud. It was just beautiful and I've never seen anything like that before. 

 WEEK 17 Right
This side of the spread is of my husband Skyboarding. It's a bit hard to see, but thats him at the end of the arrow, up out of the water. 

Well I'm catching up!!!
Week 18 coming soon!
