Scrap Friends Colour Challenge - Trekking With the Hmong

Hi everyone!

There's a new Colour Challenge up at Scrap Friends and it is very cool :) I immediately thought "kraft paper" when I saw this palette.

This last October we were trekking in the north of Vietnam and were joined by a group of Black Hmong women heading back to their village. It was amazing to see how nimble they were up and down the slippery, muddy hills in just rubber boots!

I got inspiration to use my Snow Tex paste from Pop & Colours 2. Nadia Cannizzo taught a great workshop there!

Have a wonderful weekend!


  1. Cute page....I hope they were niMble rather than nibBling at your heels!!! Gave me a giggle:) That 'snow' paste looks really, really lovely....I rather like this palette, too:):)

  2. Beautiful and so it.

  3. What an amazing story behind the layout. I love how you scrapped these amazing photos. My family went hiking up the Grand Tetons this past summer and I found so many people to be fearless in their non-hiking shoes!!!! Your layout is stunning, too. The background looks absolutely amazing, Miae!

  4. Perfect colour palette! What an amazing experience that trek must have been! The textured layers look phenomenal!

  5. Oh quelle merveilleuse page, les couleurs vont si bien au peuple mong. Le Bleu est leur couleur de prédilection. Je me trouvais au vietnam en novembre 2013 et j'ai reconnu une des jeunes filles (celle de droite sur la photo) qui nous a accompagné lors de notre promenade dans les montagnes. Du pur bonheur. Cela fait du bien de revoir ce peuple si bien mis en page de scrap bien sûr. Ghislaine

    1. C'est incroyable que vous avez reconnu l'une des filles! Nous avons passé un bon moment avec eux trekking ... et je suis heureux que le photo a de bons souvenirs pour vous! Nous vous remercions de nous rendions visite!

  6. Gorgeous! Love your mixed media and your use of dies!
    Have a wonderful day :o)

  7. Oh, I just love the way your white elements really pop against the dark background! Delish! And those media layers... Swoon!

  8. Really cool. Love the colours and that amazing texture with the paste!
