A Wink & a Smile * TCR *

IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR THE SCRAP THAT! BLOG HOP GO HERE!

Happy Sunday everyone! It is just a gorgeous Fall day here in BC! The leaves have all turned colors now and it is beautiful…as long as you do not look at the mountains because there is snow on them already EWWWW! <<not a big fan of winter here J
Ok so on with my layout for today…this was made for this weeks reveal at The Color Room. I am loving being invited as a RDA there this month. Everyone is so nice and very helpful there…just a really great bunch of talented women. The photo is two of my grand kids this summer. I did lots of masking with a brick mask, distressed all the layers and used lots of stash flowers. The pink and grey flowers I made. The material I used is hand dyed silk. It is a salt technique that I learned years ago.


In this close up you can see the brick masking and then another gate mask over top of it.

I love the little flower cluster in this corner. There is one of my silk flowers. The leaves are chippys from Dusty Attic and I just colored them to match the palette.

The next two close ups are of the large flower cluster.


Ok well that is it for today. If you want tonnes of inspiration come on by TCR, each week there is a new gorgeous palette to play with. Thanks again for stopping by and I hope that you have a fantastic week.  Feel free to leave me some scrappy love comments, I love reading them ...take care and happy scrapping J
