GDP197: Terracotta Pears by the Seaside

The colors in #GDP197 challenge are fabulous this week, and I used them to get some more scrapbook pages done in my Random Thoughts and Memories Book.
Yummy colors aren't they?  The terracotta reminded me of a picture I wanted to scrapbook that had terracotta tiles in it.  Two of my young friends (I actually consider her to be a daughter since she is my oldest daughter's best friend and spent so much time in our home) went on a missions trip to Honduras recently.  They worked at a orphanage and gave as much love as they could - you can see they gave a lot!
I started the left page first.  To make the bg, I stamped some little hearts from the retired SU! Tiny Tags set using watercolors.  Then I sponged on some white acrylic paint and did watercolor washes with the seaside spray and pear pizzazz colors. I did a little sponge of white paint over that as well.  I didn't have any terracotta paper so I painted over some colored paper with watercolors and that is how I got the cool colors on the frames.

You can see it a little better on this close up but I used all the colors on this rose with some light splattering and very watered down coloring.  I also added more petals to the flower by coloring up another flower, cutting the petals and tucking them under the original flower.  I love the extra size.

Thanks for stopping by!!

Hugz,
