MSM's Green Goblin

Virtual Scrapbooking Night challenges are happening over on SCS.  

Challenge 1: Celebrating babies in our lives:  Babies have many different definitions in my mind. I immediately think of newborns. But babies include infants, toddlers, young children, grandbabies, friend’s kids, and even heritage baby pictures. So many of us consider our pets as our babies. I still consider my 25 and 28 year old as my babies. So, your Babies Challenge, is open to include all that you consider your babies.

Challenge 1 Rules: 
• Use monochromatic colors for this page. (All shades of one color such as all blues or pinks, or greens, reds, or blacks.)
• Label the names of the people in your pictures. This can be a title, journal box, label strips, or other creative idea.
• Complete a one or two page layout.
• Add two additional embellishments. 

Here is my interpretation:

The monochromatic orange color scheme with pops of black looks wonderful with the Green Goblin!  My two additional embellishments were the black grid that I cut into three pieces and the black sequins.  In this project, the orange washi tape serves as an paper element, rather than as an embellishment. The "make magic" panel is a silkscreened acrylic paint on watercolor paper.  

It's been quite a while since I have played in VSBN.  I hope to create some more pages.

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a moo'valous day!
