Pretty in Pink

This week's dare from Circle of Scrapping Friends is to create a layout that uses paint or a digital brush. In addition, we were asked to use pink on the layout because October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month (a great time for me to think of my friend Chantelle, breast cancer survivor and talented jewelery designer). This layout uses a photo taken by Todd when we visited Joe and Jill in Nassau several years ago. We were at the wonderful Ardastra Gardens.

In this layout, I used the recolouring technique I learned in Jessica Sprague's Now We're Rocking with Photoshop course. So I managed to "paint", use a digital brush (for the hearts embellishment), and use pink for both the papers and the title! Here are the credits. Paper: "Beautiful You" kit by Jessica Sprague. Journaling tag: "Echoes of Asia" kit by Jessica Sprague. Title: "Snap Frame Alphabet" by Katie Pertiet (www.designerdigitals.com). Brush: "Valentastic Valentine Brushes" by Jason Gaylor (designfruit.com).

Super job. The painting looks so even, like it's not even painted. I have a hard time keeping my brush inside the lines (am I back in kindergarten?). You did a wonderful job. Thanks for sharing.
