So you saw a glimpse of the final paper I made in response to an Olive & Icy Blue challenge. It was pretty funny, when I was rifling back thru my stash of scrapbook papers, I found THIS:
I mean, c’mon! I would never have guessed it. and I wonder if the reasn it is still in my stash is that weird colour combo! another point of interest is the fact that this time, I did NOT cut off the info-strip at the bottom. I mean, why would I? It extends the size of the paper and isn’t seen so…
I reversed the layers, beginning with the icy blue and adding the olive over that – II used that weird foam stamp I cut from one of my neurographic drawings and oh man I love how it looks!
I added more olive around the edges and a darker Phthalo Turquoise with another wallpaper stamp for some depth and drama
and then some stenciled numbers and finally some copper.
In the end it looked like this:
And side-by-side? I def. think I like the predominantly blue one better.
Update on Son + Cat place holder. If I know, I’ll add it….

I agree and like the more blue one better!! And I think the flower on the old scrapbook paper you found in your stash reminds me of the wallpaper we had in the downstairs bathroom when we were kids! 😄

Morning Mary Anne. Definitely the blue one for me. It’s a very late 60’s sort of colourway, isn’t it. Hope all gets sorted re son and cat!! Belated happy birthday to the daughter.
Take care. God bless.

Yes, I prefer the blue. Really eye-catching.
