Color Combo Blog Hop

Welcome to the June Color Combo Blog Hop! (American spelling with deference to our hostess, Amy)
If you arrived from istampscrapcraft, you are in the right place! If you are here and didn’t come from the previous blog, I am listing the hop below my post so you can go start back at the beginning if you wish!
I liked this colour (sorry, can't help myself!) combination Amy chose for us, and I decided to share one of my very first art journal pages inspired by it. I painted a calendar page with sparkle paint stripes then stamped cupcakes over the top but I used much more pastel shades than the inspiration colours, as this was all about my daughter's 4th birthday. The labels are from presents she received and the candles are very important - they feature in every conversation M has about her birthday!

I love the idea of saving some candles for posterity! Great idea.

That's a great idea - I wouldn't have thought of keeping the candles but it's a great touch. I love how this process gives new ideas all of the time :0)

A lovely memento of the day - I also like the idea of keeping the candles as a reminder

I've never made an art journal but it is something I would love to try. Great idea.

Amy said...

Love this art journal page!!! Someday I will get into art journaling!

Rebekah said...

How super creative and fun. I have yet to start an art journal, but I wan to. I do have SMASH stuff so that is as close as I've come to steppin' out of the norm for me and letting go perfectionism!! My daughter is having a hard time with it though...she got her perfectionist habits from me I guess...hard to to just SMASH something together!!
