After the Storm - Prima BAP Nov 2014

Hello Everyone

Sorry for not having posted for a few days...but I have really been trying to create and so have stayed away from the PC! ;-)

I took some amazing photo's about 3 weeks back, of the beautiful Jacaranda trees, after a storm, the night before, in our neighbourhood.  So this was the photo for my page.

I used most of the bits and pieces that I had left of the Meadow Lark collection.

I pulled in the blues and purples from the photo.

This is the journalling.  I had taken Joe to school and we both had marveled at the purple at carpet! ;-)

On the Blue Fern chipboard corners, I used blue pearlescent powder and they really came out so well.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
I really appreciate your comments and love!
Have a super day!
Denise x

I absolutely love it. I have seen many blogs but you are the only one that made me want to learn more and get to be as good as you. Is it ok if from time to time I ask for advise?
