Saturday Color Challenge: 1/26/13 Purple Mono Liberty


It's a good thing this layout was almost complete before my finger had that adventure with the knife -- it's been slow going here this morning.

And, again I find myself at the very END of the color challenge week. My godson Chris often works in NYC and this night he took the ferry home to NJ and sent me this pic from his iPhone. With a little purple enhancement, I thought it worked well for the Purple Monochramatic color scheme Challenge.

Journaling reads:

"Give me your tired, your poor, Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, The wretched refuse of your teeming shore. Send these, the homeless tempest tossed to me: I lift my lamp beside the golden door."

For this layout I used:

BMU Dynamic Brushes: Background Blenders

DEB SS Embellishment Templates: Altered Art Essentials Lockets

DMI SS Type Paths: Waves 3801

KVE Intaglio Collection Biggie

BMU Dazzle Collection Biggie

EBA Sugar Plum Collection Biggie

LCO Marbelized Papers (retired)

and Chris' Photo

You are right - this is so pretty in purple! The monotone draws the eye to the detail andI love the repetition in the paper and the word art of the waves ... wonderful use of Durin's lockets as a feature in your photo!

I wondered if you were going to do the purple challenge! :D This looks great! I love the combo of the swirly paper pattern and the water of NY harbor. I like the way you've highlighted the Statue and the Statue of Liberty quote is perfect with it, too. Beautifully done!

Oh, my, this is lovely - what a wonderful shade of purple. I love the photo and how you blended it into the patterned paper. Just gorgeous. The locket is an interesting touch - I just bought that, I'll have to remember this use.

I don't know how I missed this one before, but it is gorgeous. The different shades of purple are beautiful and I love the gray colors too. I love how you framed the photo of the Statue of Liberty with the locket. It was wonderful. The wave background papers are so perfect for this. And of course the addition of the poem by Emma Lazarus just tops off the whole page.
