Color Combos Galore #203 PLAY

A beautiful inspiration board this week at Colour Combos Galore, a tranquil mix of teal, blue and sand. The designer challenge is to use vellum (you know you have it at the bottom of your stash!!!) or transparent/translucent products on your page.
Here is my take on the challenge. The photo is my husband aged about 7 or 8 playing the violin. Most people who know him would be surprised to discover that he played for quite some time! I wanted to keep the layout fairly simple so that the focus would be on the photo.

I was inspired by the dunegrass and used some raffia to create my own. Also loved the soft colour of the sand dunes and this inspired my to layer some vellum over corrugated cardboard. I did a little misting in the background using a mask and then stamped some paint over that with crumpled aluminium foil.
Hope you get a chance to join us!
