Hello friends and fellow paper crafters! My husband and I just returned from a fun and refreshing road trip to Santa Fe, New Mexico. We had planned a trip to Ireland, but Mother was "under the weather". Thankfully, she is doing fine now, but we cancelled our trip to the "Emerald Isle". As soon as we knew that she was back to her normal activities and not needing assistance, we decided to return to Santa Fe for a one week getaway before all the hubbub of Christmas hits us, and we had a ball!
Case File 266 at Color Stories Inspiration inspired me with its colors and the architecture in Santa Fe seemed perfect inspiration as well. Always enjoying a challenge and this one hit the spot!
|Here is how I solved the case:|
The Scene: All five colors were used.
The Evidence: Geometric patterns, Birds,
The Testimony: Write a random list about your subject.
Dimension is always used in my scrapbooking. What a joy it is to truly make elements come off the background!
In this photo, use of texture, especially in the background can be seen.
Another technique frequently used in my work is paint splattering. Layering also makes the picture seem to come off the page!
More 3-D and texture here. Gotta love it!
The journaling reads,
"Love Santa Fe
Back at the Ranch
Thanks especially to all my sweet friends who leave a comment!
