This is the colour inspiration at Scrapping Outback. We are to use all the colours plus white.
The photo is of the acropolis in Athens Greece.
On my first trip there we saw snow. It was January 1977.I've copied this from an old slide.
I started with an October Afternoon paper named Farmhouse Faded Wallpaper.
Next I misted using red through a sunray mask.
I began overlapping paper strips featuring the colours in the cocktail behind my photo mat.
I even used part of a circle paper (containing white) underneath.
My chipboard was inked first in yellow then black distress ink has been applied to "age" it.
The 4 vases plus "Ancient" are from Memory Maze chipboard.
The red brads added an extra finished look to my layout, same as the cherry does on the drink.
