This is really a fun color pallet this week at CSI! Green, blue and brown are my faves and the yellow just adds a fun pop! I chose these photos of a recent trip to the Japanese Gardens in Portland, OR.
I used grass, clouds, tree, long title, and it's a bridge, but sorta like a fence. My hidden journaling says, "There is something so peaceful about wandering around a Japanese garden. I so appreciate all the work and care that goes into making such a beautiful space. I could spend all day here just being deep in thought."
I decided to play around with paint a little bit. I'm trying to learn how to do cool painted backgrounds, but I have a long way to go. I guess I am a bit intimidated at mixing colors together and not making a big, muddy mess. I played a little with wiping away some of the paint for this project. The clouds are just the paint cleaned off in the shape of a cloud. I did mix the free, artsy feel of the paint with more elegant papers though and added an Asian flair with my stamp and die cuts. I based the whole look of a Creative Scrappers sketch.
