Gotta love a RED background !!

The Color Room is having their first ever DT CALL!!!!
If you want to create with freedom and passion, while exploring your love of color and pushing the limits of your creative boundries, this is an opportunity you will love. This role gives you the opportunity to use the supplies you have been hoarding and are desperate to use, or  scraps and products you love- just for fun…..Then this is the team for you.

when I saw the palette this week I knew red was the background for me
with a Black and white photo.

palette #111
 paper rolls with hidden journaling .. 
I have been using this technique for quite a few years now 
and it is one of my fave elements to use for journaling .
 metal elements  -- altered  with texture paste and blue ink 
are having their very first DT call 
for all the details 

chipboard is from IMAGINARIUM DESIGNS 

thanks for dropping by 
and for taking the time to leave me some love 
hope I have inspired you 
love and hugz
