JOY

This is my first layout for the Color Room #37. I thought that I would try it out there and try some different color combos. The photo is of my son and daughter in law. I just used paper from my stash for this one.
I made all the larger flowers myself, a great tutorial at Swirlydoos. I did a lot of layers and used a punch around the edges of one of them. I inked the leaves to match the color challenge as well.
I printed out the butterflies and used stickles on them. I did water distressing on a couple of the layers of paper and then inked the edges of them to make it stand out some.
Below is a close up of the flowers again as well as the chippy that I inked and then smootched. I added some gems here and there as well. You can also see the punched oval that I did with a corner punch then added some liquid pearls to it.
As always thank you so much for visiting my blog and I hope that everyone has a great Christmas season and stay safe and warm. Feel free to leave some scrappy love comments, I love reading them ...take care and happy scrapping J
