Gingersnap Creations Color Challange

GC60: Color Challenge - Shades of Blue

I had this fabulous picture of Jon Bon Jovi that I took at the Key Arena on February 19th. He is wearing this gorgeous blue shirt and I wanted to make a scrapbook page and thought this would be the perfect challenge to do that. I grabbed a piece of Sparkle Blanc and regular copy paper. I poured some paint in a paper plate and dippep some string in to the paint then laid different pieces of string in varying directions on my paper. I put the piece of copy paper on top of that and then tried to pull the strings out to get an interesting pattern. I didn't turn out lik I expected. I was hoping for cleaner lines but I guess my strings were too wet. That's okay. Still kind of cool so I am gonna use it anyway.
These are background papers made with leftover paint, glimmer mists and deli paper.

Grabbed some of my Jovi paraphanalia and put a quick page together. Which now I have decided I am going to frame and hang on on my Jovi walls. Did she say walls! Yep. I said walls :D

The "Super Rock Star" is from a set of $1 stamps from Michaels and embossed with gold. I used a sponge brush to edge the page with blue. And I used my carpet thingie to add the dots. See my little cupid charm? ;)

So that's it. Late as usual. Better late then never. I am working on that. Hope everyone is a having a fabulous and fantastic weekend.
