Higgins & His Shadow-CREATE Magazine

Note, I am loving the rain that is going on outside right now.  The window is open with the breeze blowing in that sweet rain smell.  Ok, back to our programming!

This layout is in the most recent issue of the CREATE magazine.  One of my assignments was the color challenge.  These are always hard for me.  I honestly think it's because I don't want to be limited to colors!  This one actually went fairly well, once I started digging in my stash for papers.  I pulled a bunch from my Gossamer Blue kits and then some Basic Grey papers I had.

Supplies are listed in the magazine, so I am going to leave that part out!

A little secret.  I just about messed this layout up once I had it done. I got the idea to "doodle" underneath the word "his".  Well, it didn't turn out quite like I had hoped and I started to panic. So, I decided just to make some heavy lines instead. They aren't too bad and actually kind of worked with the letters I had chosen for the title.

To tie those doodled lines in, I decided to trace the circles.  Of course, this was decided AFTER I had attached them to my layout with my ThermOWeb foam squares!  LOL  So, I very carefully traced around and was ok with how it turned out. I obviously did not plan well for the entire layout, but I am happy with the way it turned out!

And if you haven't seen the May issue of CREATE magazine you can download it HERE (and all the other issues!).  Have a great Tuesday!
