Happy 2014!!

Hi everyone!

Well Happy New Year to you all! I hope the first few days of 2014 have treated you well :)

I know the days leading up to the end of last year were busy here and there were so many posts I thought of doing that I just didn't get the chance to. But no matter! That just gives me plenty of stuff to post in the new year :D

Today I'll share two pages.....

First up is my take on the fabulous Sketch Challenge #21 of at Scrap Friends.

Here's the sketch. I obviously rotated my page..... and seriously, isn't this sketch inspirational?

I loved all the random, messy lines. I drew some squiggly lines of my own with glitter glue.

Next up I wanted to show you the page I made for UmWowStudio.

No photos here. This was all inspired by the 2014 Pantone color of the year, Radient Orchid, a "...captivating harmony of fuchsia, purple, and pink undertones." What do you think about the color?

I've had this beautiful Cicada Bug chippie for some time, just waiting for the right page to use it. I colored with many different mauve and purple paints and really enjoyed making it the centerpiece. The Hexagon Background chipboard painted with yellow helped to create some contrast on my monochromatic page so that the cicada would stand out. 

I created the background with the UWS Circle Confetti Mask

Well I hope you didn't mind my sorta, kinda, long post ;) Thanks as always for stopping by!
