I'm trying to catch up but honestly, where does the time go?!?
I did manage to get a layout made yesterday evening though and that was a good thing. It's a great stress reliever and I'm in need of that right now :-)
So, I challenged you to take up the ombré trend and get colourful.
Whenever I put these prompts together, I'm rarely organised enough to actually think about HOW I will make mine and I certainly didn't have any papers in mind. So it was pure luck to open up my April Counterfeit Kit, Opposite, and discover a selection of creams, yellows and oranges which seemed to be calling to be put together. This was most definitely not planned but such a pleasant surprise.
I've been missing using lots of paper on my layouts recently so I decided to just select a group of papers, cut them into strips and use one of my favourite border punches in order to get a large block of colour on my page. I placed them all a bit off kilter to make it look less structured and quite like the higgeldy piggeldy look to it.
After laying them out on the page, I decided that the page didn't need much else. The kit didn't have much that fitted the look I wanted to achieve so I settled on a few resin roses, a couple of über-old rub ons including a Doodlebug alpha which must be four or five years old, and some pearl sprinkles. A few glitter mist splats finished this off.

My journalling is minimal but heartfelt and the photo is one I adore so you can be sure to see that again and again on various layouts.
I loved seeing the ombré effect appear with the papers and I will be trying this again - practice makes perfect I think!
We really hope you share your colour choices over at our Flickr gallery (here) with the tag WM#84.
