She Believed She Could.. So She Did

I have been loving all of the fun things being done with mists these days! They really are so versatile. I wanted to create my own ombre look with my mists. To do this, I left some drops of yellow mist and some drops of water onto a plate. I used a paint brush to paint across the page. To make the color fade, I added more water so that the yellow color wasn't as concentrated. As you can see, I did two ombre effects and then added a line of turquoise in the middle as well. I loved how it turned out and it dries SO quickly!

The photo is from my first 5k race that I did last summer. I thought the title was very fitting. I used that very large ombre washi tape in the corners that came with the Front Row Studio Calico kit. My favorite part about creating this layout was going through my stash of paper scraps and finding all the right colors. I like it because its almost rewarding to go back and use those scraps instead of starting with new sheets of paper! 

Here are some close ups. You can see all the dimension I've added with the enamel dots, ombre thickers, and arrows. I also added in some yellow and gray threads that is becoming popular right now. 

Last but not least, I want to promote a new challenge blog! They will start with their first challenge on March 1st and they are offering up a great prize for new followers! You should definitely check it out and play with their challenges when they start! You can find it here... Scrap You Story
