I picked up on the t-shirt colours for both the background and the elements on the page and added in a little purply grey card to link in the black and white parts of the photo.
I've learnt how to achieve this focal colour photography effect - which I absolutely adore - from an online Jessica Sprague course - Digi 4 Back For More. It's such a fabulous course, I'm learning so much and highly recommend it.
I just had to fit my journalling in on the main part of the page as it's such a hoot and so precious. I more or less copied it straight from my son's text message. I'm so looking forward to visiting them and being introduced to the cows!
And a closer look at that grid of circles. Do the the wavy line ones make your eyes go funny?
Papers: SU, Fresh Prints; Chatterbos, Scrapbook Walls
Alpha: Lawn Fawn, Louie's ABCs
Punch: Woodware, circle
Die: Clearly Besotted, Journal It
Well that's me done for today. Now it's over to you. I'm looking forward to seeing your colours and how you interpret the grid of circles and reading your journalling. Be sure to share your pages, or cards, here.
And keep crafting!
