MDSM4 A Vacation Morning ~ Color for Emphasis

Morning Everyone!  I'm not sure how I feel about this page yet.  Feel like something is missing, but I've already added several layers... I'll stew on it.

Little Missy is still inseparable from her sippy cup.  I thought Papa and her having their morning drink by the pool was too cute.  I tried to simulate some patterns reminescent of looking into a pool with the chevron patterns and the crinkled background from Natural Composition Overlays.

I also used a photo-editing trick, using color for emphasis.  Did you notice I removed the color from the circular photo to focus on Missy?  I pulled out my Photoshop Elements books so I can try more photo tricks in the future.

Stamps: Natural Composition Overlays\Natural Composition Overlays - 1, Color = MARINA MIST 100,165,187, _Designer Kits\Days to Remember\Days to Remember - overlay, Color = PACIFIC POINT 1,128,181, _Designer Kits\Chevron\Chevron - 5 grunge, Color = PACIFIC POINT 1,128,181, _Designer Kits\Chevron\Chevron - 1 grunge, Color = PACIFIC POINT 1,128,181; Embellishments:     Baker's Twine\Baker's Twine - White, _Designer Kits\Get It Done - embellishments\Get It Done - tag 3, Baker's Twine\Baker's Twine - White knot short; Punches: Basics\1.25 Square Punch, Fill Color = BAJA BREEZE 141,189,193.

Here is Holly's sketch on the MDS Monday Challenge.  Make sure you join us!  Why not?  Nothing wrong with getting your practice in while also getting some pages done.

I also had a moment to play along with the challenge on mydigitalstudio.net, 2012 Faves.  I thought it was fun to ask my daughter her favs.  Five-year-olds have such cute answers!

I think maybe I'll ask her every year and see how her answers change... fun!  I used an older sketch from Silhouette Studio.

Super cute pool page, Heidi! Love the photo editing you've done - but I especially like how you worked your Baker's Twine at a diagonal and joined together on the other side. Something I do "in real life" but don't think of with MDS. Thanks for the inspiration!

Love the 'ripple effect' you did on this page. And those pictures are too, too cute!

What a fabulous idea for the other page as well! I love her favourite movie's list :)

I think the photo trick is neat. I love the list ideas for kids!

How cute is that list of favs.... What a fun book idea to do if you ask her each year. Your MDS page is too cute. I love how you changed the colors on the bottom picture.
