April Kraft +

Swatch it up!  This month the challenge is to use paint swatches.
I chose my photos before getting my paint swatches so I would know which colours to get.
I went to Mitre 10 Mega and found the 5 colours that best matched the butterflies and white in her dress.  I then got some other types of swatches in all colours of the rainbow for future use!!  May as well since I was getting them.
I found an image I liked on Pinterest but it had butterflies cut out of the top of the pieces.  I didn't want to do that as I wanted to keep the names there, they worked well with the photos.  I was glad I had taken two of each colour so I was able to extend them down under the photos.
I very carefully lined them all up with rulers so they were not crooked.  :)
A fun challenge this month, I wouldn't normally use paint swatches on my layouts and now I have plenty more to use.

April White With One

This month the challenge is Helium Blue, like the blue of the sky after the rain we have had lately.
And since blue is my favourite colour, I was happy to do it again.
I thought about using the sketch but forgot all about it!
Instead I went with the idea of blue sky, clouds and sunshine.  Especially after finding the cute photos of my youngest daughter, 3 months old on her tummy in the sunshine.
I used blue gelatos to make the sky.  A dark blue gelato under some modeling paste for the clouds.
And some gold sticky dots for rays of the sun.
So good to have the sun back after days of rain.
