Having fun with bright colours

Happy Sunday everyone. I had a small window of opportunity to get some washing dry before it rained again today and of course spent the rest of the day being creative. I managed to get a few projects completed this weekend; an off-the-page timber project, two challenges for March & two pages for our travel album. Not bad seeing as I also did some cooking & watched three movies over the weekend as well as the usual pantry re-stocking, ironing and a bit of cleaning. So all in all, not a bad effort if I do say so myself :) I have another one of "those weeks" coming up so won't get back to my creation station until next weekend.
This page is my entry in the fornightly challenge over at The Boxx. We were to take our inspiration from some photos that Gina had posted. The lovely colours in the photos were my inspiration. I couldn't wait to scrap this photo of DS & his friends at a recent farewell party. They had so much fun in these costumes (although a bit too hot to stay in them for too long but time enough to get up to some shananigans in them!). Anyway I'm glad someone had the where-with-all to take a "before" photo. I downloaded the comic book icons from the internet and printed the second pic using the "comic book" option on my photo editing program.

I punched the stars with my Stampin' Up! star punch, stamped them with a background stamp & glossed them with Crystal Effects. I've used Pool Party, Calypso Coral & Island Indigo colours from the new Stampin' Up! In Colours. I thought the American Crafts puffy alphas were perfect for this page. Click on the photo for a close up.
 I'll be back tomorrow to post my entry for the Monthly Sketch Challenge on The Boxx. TFL xx
