I've been doing lots of complicated projects lately, and I wanted to do something simple for a change. Here is a layout done in my beloved graphic style.
With this layout, which is entitled "Easter Sunday," I'm playing along with the springtime challenge at Playing in Paradise. I've used palette #149 from the Color Room.
Now, at first glance this might not seem like a spring palette. But it is to me. You see, there is a charming, cottage-style brown house in my neighborhood with a big flowering tree in the yard. Every spring, the tree gets beautiful yellow blossoms. It's so eye-catching, and so different from the pink and purple trees that one usually sees in the spring. This palette put me in mind of that house and its tree right away, and I used that mental image as the basis for my layout.
I love to play with different lettering styles, mixing and matching for that eclectic look.
I even found a sticker of a tree to use! The journaling on the layout reads: "Since we had already celebrated with my family the week before, Easter itself was very quiet and peaceful this year. We did puzzles and ate candy. :)"
We actually had pretty bad weather during Easter weekend, but it is finally warming up now. At last we're able to enjoy spring weather here. Hope that you are enjoying your days, too. Thanks for stopping by my blog today!
