"Geishas" Mixed Media Layout for entry into the February Challenge at Off the Rails Scrapbooking

Hi everyone,

Another Mixed Media layout completed.  This one is for the February Challenge at Off the Rails Scrapbooking which you can find here.  I found this one a little challenging for me.  I found the color combination a little outside my comfort zone, LOL!  Once I mixed the colors together though, it did seem to work!

Here is my entry that I titled "Geishas".  It is a photo of my granddaughter's Gabby and Suri wearing Kimono's that my husband and I got them while we were in Japan.  They love to dress up in pretty things.  Such girly girls!

This is the color board that was our inspiration:

Here are the products used to create this page:

Prima Mask #560935
Crafter's Workshop Template TCW94 Doodle Flower
Texture Paste
Dusty Concord Distress Ink
Metallic Rub ons
Tim Holtz Inside Out Alphabet Strip die
Heidi Swapp Primrose and Chartreuse Color Shine
Homemade Purple Glimmer Mist
Tattered Angels Vintage Pink and Haunted Shadow Glimmer Mist
Petaloo Darjeeling Flower
Various metal and plastic findings, flowers, buttons and brads
Prima Sculpture flower
Chipboard Diamonds
Crochet Yarn

Thank you for looking!
