By Day and Night...

 I have another two pages for the album of our first Gran Canarian holiday to share today. The album is almost finished now and I can't wait to show it to hubby. I've shown him the first few pages I did but he hasn't seen the rest and I'm hoping it will be like looking through a book for him. I've taken quite a leap from my comfort zone here and I loved it once I got my 'foothold' on what I wanted to do. Where it's so different from what I'd normally do is the colours - I wouldn't normally put this combo together but it's the challenge this week at Digitally Sweet so I decided to go for it and I must say, that I do really like how it turned out. Instead of making two matching pages I decided to make two complimentary ones instead and the bottom photo shows how it will look in the album. I used the same colours, just changing which ones were dominant and more or less the same embellishments with a few variations. Maspalomas is stunning by day and night and well worth a visit if you get the chance. I used papers and elements from a lot of different kits and I'm afraid I can't remember them all (it was that kind of session!) but if there's anything you want me to identify for you, just ask in the comments and I'll do my best :) I also did a little recolouring in Craft Artist.


Thank you for dropping by and I hope you get some crafty time today.
