Life Paper Scrapbook - September Colour Challenge

 Hello and happy Friday - hope you are all well and feeling crafty ☺  I have my DT inspiration for the colour challenge at Life Paper Scrapbook.  The colour inspiration has a summery feel about it and I really enjoyed putting these ones together to create a page.
Here is the colour palette:

 .... and here is my page ....

 I recently purchased the Project Life kit from Life Paper Scrapbook and have used some of the little bits on this page - you can check out the kit HERE.  I also bought some of the Freckled Fawn Cloud Wood Chips - they are just adorable.  As you can see I have a lot of white on my page with pops of the different colour - I really love how this one turned out.
Here are some close-up's:
 I had a little fun with some background textures.  Once my modelling paste was dry I used a stamp pad, paint brush and water to create the water colour feature you can see in the background.

I've used a Stampin'Up waterbased ink pad - by pressing the ink pad into the lid you create a pool of ink.  I've dipped a wet paint brush into this to create my palette of water colour and used this to paint onto the page.  I've done this with each colour.

The little wooden cloud chips from - aren't they just so cute.  The wooden frame comes in the kit from LPS.
