Two influences conspired to make me create this page:
- I am participating in the Paper Issues online crop, and one of the challenges is to alter a cut file with color (adding mists, using patterned paper, etc.).
- I recently stared dopily at the beauty of this layout by Paige Evans and made a mental note to try it myself. Isn’t it gorgeous?
I had this simple, classic photo of Phil and me dyeing Easter eggs at the kitchen table in 1976. I thought it deserved some special treatment, so I “dyed” my background daisies (water colored them with Tim Holtz distress inks) and then backed that with a colorful (old) patterned paper from K&Co. I also cut the title on the Silhouette and then added a few random tidbits around the photo.
