A Note from Elizabeth

I love this photograph for a few different reasons: it brings back a fun memory of a day my daughter, Maddie, was home on an early release afternoon and wanted something special to do; I love that she painted outside for so long, and I love that her outfit (not planned) matches so well with the blooming azaleas and easel. None of the colors in this photo are colors I reach for first while scrapbooking, but they were so intense that I decided to let the colors do all the work. I’ve been experimenting with using large photos that take up almost all the space on the page and pairing them with a handful of embellishments; the striking reds and pinks don’t need much to tie it all together. I really enjoyed thinking in terms of color first!
