What if...

I'm truely surprised at how easily this page came together for me.  I struggled with my last challenge, but maybe that's how it goes sometimes.  I'm sure you all can relate to that.

Some go your way and some don't, but we move on the the next challenge either way.

I decided, for this one, to take the August challenge from 123 Challenge and combine it with the challenge from The Paper Variety.

Here's my take...

Thanks for stopping and sharing your comments!

Color inspiration for this one came from White With 1.  White + Purple + Doodling!  Ha!  I have two boys, so needless to say, purple is not a mainstay here in the Haiss household.

I came across these photos I took of some springtime blooms and thought this will be a piece of cake.  Purple flower, purple theme...  not so much.  I struggled and struggled with a LO and am still not happy with it.  Don't get me wrong, there are some aspects of this page that I absolutely LOVE, and others that I HATE and the rest are so-so.

Some of the things I love, is the lacy banner at the top.  It already came glittered and it was a shade of purple, a very light shade of purple.  I wanted it a bit darker, so I spritzed some watered down ink on it and to my surprise, the ink only stuck to the non-glittered portion.  LOVE the result!

I also LOVE the floss that I wrapped around the letters, which are clear acrylic painted on the backside.

Anyway, enough said...

The result...

Thoughts and comments, good or bad, are always appreciated!
