Hello scrappy friends! I hope that everyone north of the equator is staying cool in one way or another! For my friends south of the the equator, stay warm! Wherever you live, I think it is the perfect time to stay inside and do something wonderfully creative!

This layout is for the Color Stories Inspiration Design Team and I loved working with the pastel colors against the black background! 

The paint splatters can easily be seen in the photo above. This is one of my "Go to" techniques for the backgrounds of my layouts. 

In the photo above, can be seen the layering I always use. To change things up a bit, I gathered and placed some Tim Holtz Tissue Wrap between the Blue Fern layers.

The seedlings and beads are added by painting 3-D Matte Gel where I want them on the layout, then I sprinkle the beads and seedlings over the same area and let them dry. When they have dried, I shake off the excess beads and smile!

The journaling reads, "Elizabeth and Kristin met while standing in line in front of a Greek sorority house during rush. Oddly enough, it turned out that they had almost identical rush schedules and were always next to each other at the parties so they became fast friends. As chance would have it, they both decided to pledge Alpha Phi and have been close friends ever since. Through thick and thin, finals, break ups, weddings and childbirth, Kristin has remained one of Elizabeth's cornerstones. Words alone cannot express how much this friendship means to Liz. This friendship is one of a kind and they love each other like sisters. These two ladies think their friendship is like a breath of fresh air!"
