All Good Things Are Wild & Free

My daughter loves flowers so we took a trip to the flower fields at dewberry Farm in Brookshire. She walked through the fields pointing and picking and smelling. It was a super fun day that I'll treasure forever.

To create this layout I combined a mists with water and painted in (and outside of) the lines for the flowers.  Once dried, I applied gesso in a thin layer over the section I reserved for the title so that the title would pop on the page and not get lost in the sea of color.

I also used the water colors to color the white alpha chipboard so that certain words would stand out. 

I simply painted the color directly onto the entire chipboard sheet, just coloring the letters I wanted. It worked out great. 

I filled in the rest of the title in with alpha stickers and then added Little Bits phrases  as small details that help tell the story better. 

And of course I framed up my photo and added a few embellishments to tie the page together.

The Just Add Color is so fun and wonderful to play with.  Get your colors out and get your hands on this collection...STAT!
