Evzones at Scrapfriends colour challenge


Here is the colour palette for Scrapfriends.
Again I've gone against the normal and created a male layout using PINK!!! ( No I don't mean the pop star.)
My background was created by using "pretty pink" acrylic paint, then dribbling turquoise mist over the top in splashes. The mesh allows this to show through.

The photo was taken from the hop-on hop-off bus. We were in Syntagma square watching the changing of the guard, then hopped on the bus and followed the guards as they marched around the corner. The reflection of the hand rail is on the photo as we took it through the glass.

I resisted from using flowers and tried to make my other embellishments more masculine.
I've used fibre that I found, instead of ribbon and a combination of alphas as I ran out of Z! That is the first time that has happened.

They do look like the ministry of Funny Walks from Monty Python.

Here's my layout.
