Lawnscaping Challenge #110 - COLOR (inspired by the rainbow)


today is a brand new Lawnscaping Challenge! yay!! it's my favorite way to start a monday! ha!

and this challenge people...I LOVE IT!!

see? rainbows!!! yay!!! i'm so excited!
i was extra happy with this challenge, so i decided to go BIG - instead of a card, i went with a 12x12 layout! fun!

eek! i just LOVE how his came out!
I used some frames from my stash and layered them in a loose R-O-Y-G-B-I-V scheme down the side of my layout. then i covered everything in clear gesso!
once it was dry, i added some watercoloring with distress inks, and then embellished in a color-match-y way! looooooove! i also added some stars with texture paste and my favorite star stencil ever

that cute little photo is from this spring, when my little Mann (dressed as the Hulk, naturally...) picked and blew on a dandelion in our yard! so sweet! see guys? it's the softer side of superheros! :)

anyway, i used my favorite cloud images from the Starry Backdrops stamp set in a diagonal fashion. they're all stamped on vellum and then stitched to the layout. i also used the Milo's ABC's set for the date! :)

oh! and i thought that cute little heart swooooosh from Bugs and Kisses would be perfect since he 'blowing' in that direction! :)

lastly, i added some of the stars from the Stars Wood Veneers Lawn Ornaments. :)
