SO Happy with how this page turned out! I was inspired to enter a 'page challenge' from the Nikki Sivils blog. It's not so easy to find the Nikki Sivils paper here but I did have a couple of her collections in my stash and thought the rainy themed paper with a melancholy looking black and white photo seemed to fit the bill... This is the "It's Raining , It's Pouring" paper line.
I wanted to make the clouds stand out a little so I spread them with embossing powder... thinking that would just make them all shiny, but then was so excited to see the 'water drops' appear giving the clouds and the umbrellas below the appearance of being wet! I used 'pop dots' to give the clouds and a few umbrellas some dimension and was VERY happy with the results! Can't wait to do another page tonight!
