Color Combo Gallore Challenge #155

Another challenge!  This week has colors I LOVE and happily, stashed in my collection of papers.  The inspiration above is our guide, our MAP you might say that will point us in the creative direction.  This is where I ended.

This was fun!  I used my Creative Imaginations papers that I've been hoarding (ehum, I mean saving) for such the occasion.  These pictures so fell into the crop challenge theme.  Get Away and Grids.  Taylor's first visit to Maine.  He really thought March in Maine would be warm sunny days.  Yeah, not so much.  Instead grey skys, grass ready to burst but still yellow from the winter.  The Atlantic wasn't ready to give up it's winter and even it's waters reflected it, dark, greanish blues, washing onto the grey granite of the coast.
For this project, I used my Tim Holtz Distress Crackle medium in Rock Candy on my map paper.  To enhance the crackle I used my sage Distress Ink pad.  I edged all my photo's in a pewter grey from ColorBox.  I also thinned some Platinum Liquid Pearls with some clear acrylic medium for a transparent wash.  My rub on are Creative Imaginations again, but they're getting old and a little difficult to rub on.  Note: DON'T STASH RUB ONS!  USE THEM UP!  :)

I also used Google to look up the Longitude and Latitude of Bailey's Island!  It's a pretty cool feature.  You can select an exact point on the Google Map, click on it..poof exact coordinates.  I thought that was cool.  Using Bleeding Cowboy font I printed my titles and then drew grids onto them.. Well that's my page submission, hope you all like it!
