I was chosen as a Top 5 two months ago and therefore was asked to be a guest for this combo.
When I saw the colors, the navy and grey remind me of a dreary day, so I used some rainy day photos. These were taken at the beginning of the summer, when the kids were so ancy about going outside, but of course, there were a few rainy days when we couldn't go out to play.
As I was creating this page, I was thinking of rain and thunderstorms, so I tried to use things that remind me of that. I used a grey patterned paper for the background and a circle stencil with some gesso.
So I needed to find a way to incorporate the orange into my page. And again, by accident, a scrap of orange paper fell onto my page as I was cutting some other shapes that I was intially going to use. I loved the way the little triangles looked, so I just cut a few and placed them around. They remind me of lightning bolts! :)
The word "today" is a rub on from American Crafts Dear Lizzy Lucky Charm collection, and I put it on a transparency from Maya Road. I love that these transparencies look like the window the kids are looking through. I did my journaling underneath it.
