Gettin Picky Again

Woohoo!! The next Inspiration Challenge is up at Get Picky!  Because i was the winner of Inspiration Challenge # 1, i got to feature over there are a special guest artist for Inspiration Challenge #2.
Very excited!  Thanks for the opportunity Tanya!  :))

This is the awesome 'Inspiration' pic:



I was instantly drawn to the black on biscuit colour scheme... i LOVED it!
So that was my main inspiration for this layout:




I used a dry brush technique with a blend of paints to lighten the bg pp a little bit, then started adding black embellies, paint and alphas.  I also used the quote as inspiration for the title/journaling as well.

Raining (again!!) today.... great for mojo.  i actually scrapped a lo on my poor neglected dh today.  He always seems to miss out on featuring in my work... that's what you get when you have 4 kids i guess!!   i have soooo much other material and stories to tell!  hehe

Still scratching, but getting better  :)))
Now... off to get all the christmas lights/tree/decos out in readiness for tomorrow.
Will be back really soon with more to share.

Thanks for the visit!
