You Make Me Smile

Hello scrappy friends! Today I'm sharing a layout for the Color Stories Inspiration Design Team. This challenge has the prettiest color combinations. 

Here is how I solved the case:

I used the traditional clues.
Scheme: All five colors were used
Evidence: Birds, flowers, stamping, paint
Testimony: I chose #55 from Buddies Prompt: What would you do if you lived on a farm? 

Techniques used on this, and all of my layouts are: painting, texturizing with stencil and modeling paste, 3-D work, embossing, fussy cutting and stamping.

The journaling reads, "I believe if Liz lived on a farm, she would cuddle with the animals all day! She has always loved her furry and feathered friends. They have included cats, bunnies, hamsters, a dog and wild birds throughout the years. She has been especially loyal to her doxie, Wit, for fourteen years, even though he is a little stinker!

Thanks to everyone who stops by!
