Hot Air Balloon

Here's another mid-challenge inspiration reminder and this one is for Make it Colourful where the them is to "Colour with Green!" You'll have to check out the blog and gallery for more projects as the design team has done an awesome job!!


For my project I used Hot Air Balloon and Valley Above from Make it Crafty plus a few chippies from the N1 Fancy Collection. The chippies coordinate well with the new Whimsy sentiments so I took advantage of that and stamped one from Stylized Notables 1. The rest of the journal page was put together with odds and ends found around my crafting space.



The Valley Above was a fun image to color and I used three different combinations of green for all the greenery. YG90's was used for the tree and BG90's was used for the evergreen trees. Then the grass and fields are basically colored with the G20's. With the three different tones of green it helps to define the scene.


I used a little green in the Hot Air Balloon but the rest was colored with contrasting rusts and tans to help set it off. The balloon was fun to color and I even got to add a few pleats. :D Hope you've enjoyed this journal page and thanks for stopping by!


If you're interested in being on the design team, then now is your chance! Zoe is having her first ever DT Call and this will be your once in a blue moon opportunity... perhaps an orange moon opportunity. ;D Good Luck!
