Venice



This is the last LO I did for 2009 - though not the last I have to share with you, I am waiting for permission to blog another one.

Back to my favourite straight lines and big blocks of patterned paper for this one! It's also one of my favourite colour combinations - Bazzill Aqua with Bluegrass and a burgundy-ish purple which can be either Juneberry, Brocade or Gypsy Rose depending on the rest of the LO - in this case it is Gypsy Rose. The purple paper is an old one and the green paper is from 7 Gypsies and is actually called Venice, though I didn't realise it when I pulled it from stash LOL.

The title is done on the Robo, the swirly flourish is die cut and the side scroll borders are done with an EK Success punch - they looked a bit too much when I put them on so I punched out some purple diamonds to break them up a bit and it has come out really well. Journalling on safmat. The hardest part was picking the photos, trying to sum up our wonderful trip in two pages .... very tricky!
