Experimentation - TCR 26

7Gypsies' summer CHA Paddington line has this "waterloo" paper, and it is typography made easy.  I love it just as I have everything 7Gypsies for the last eight years.  Here is a 7Gypsies hoarder confession: I buy two sheets of every 7Gypsies rubbing. I buy four sheets of every 97% Complete Stickers: one to "use," one to have, one to hoard, one to spare! Oh believe me, they ain't never had a cutomer like me! LOL

For this Color Room layout, I was inspired by the typography and since my photo is 7x2.5 inches, I thought it fit well in this design.  I used some beloved 7Gypsies rubbings, and a very appropriate sentiment stamp from My Favorite Things. Pardon my French, it really should have been "Sans frontiers" but oh well, no "s" in the end, hopefully Alex isn't looking, lol.

Isn't the palette totally striking?  It's your turn to try it out. The October RAK is provided by the Scarlet Lime!  Everyone who participates has a chance!  Don't wait!

Tomorrow is October already, how time flies by so quickly.  I don't think I have posted this layout from the WIP kit club.  I also used Helmar adhesives on this project, many Zapdots were used to pop out the clouds on which I stamped some great Gardening sentiments by My Favorite Things. Fall is upon us and our cantaloupes are almost all eaten, but we will always remember 2010 as a great year for our crop of canteloupes.

Your first layout is striking! To me so very different from what I've seen you do, and yet it is so you! Does that make sense? Great take on the color palette. Love your second one, yum I love cantaloupes! Love the colors and the stamping on the clouds!!

Awesome layouts! I love the simplicity of the first -- really makes the papers stand out! Good to see you using up some of those rub-ons :)

Your gardening layouts always amaze me. It doesn't matter how many you have done, they are all fabulous and completely unique! Love all of the circles mimicking the roundness of the yummy fruit!
