color combos galore: caribbean dreams

there is a beautiful new inspiration board up at color combos galore today.  the colors are so vibrant and beautiful and the whole thing just screams party to me!!

here's a look at the colors and inspiration...

and here is my layout inspired by this board....

Inspiration Photo #4/Focus On Design: White Background
(used white cardstock base and created a "white space" design)
Other Inspiration:
Inpiration Photo #1: string (idea: hemp string); Inspiration Photo #2: resin flower (idea: cabochon type flower); Inspiration Photo #3: stacked/layered papers (idea: composition of papers); clothespin, stamping on tag, hearts (idea: clothespinned tag)

my main focus for the layout was "white space".  most of you probably know i love a good white background so i jumped at the chance to utilize this beautiful space on this page.

i also took inspiration from the "clustered" look of some of the flowers in the inspiration photo and added two clusters on my layout.  one with my photo and journaling and one in the top right corner.  i just love these colors.  especially the red....which i'm not usually too keen about.  it just makes the whole page pop!!

thanks so much for stopping by!!  happy happy friday!!
