3/2/13 Saturday Color Challenge: "Wyoming"


3/2/13 Saturday Color Challenge: "Wyoming"

I started this layout for the 2/13 Journaling Chat but finished it with a few color tweaks for the Saturday Color Challenge.
If you'd like to see the color swatch and join the challenge, here's the thread: 3/2/13 Saturday Color Challenge
(Ok Carla. I had some trouble, but finally used these lovely watercolor resist templates.  Whew.)
Journaling reads:
"I took this photograph of the Teton Mountains when I visited Wyoming and a few years later decided to paint it when my Watercolor class was working on miniatures.  True to this quote, I sure do paint my own nature.   My watercolors are always very realistic, precise and full of detail, very much like a part of me."

For this layout I used:
KME SS Word Art Templates: Watercolor Resist - Art
DEB Altered Art Collection Biggie
BMU SS Paper Templates: Background Blenders
BMU SS Paper Templates: Edgers Biggie
STI Fall Watercolors Collection Mini
My watercolor painting
and my own photo



    Oh this is so gorgeous.... can't wait to see the colours!!!! I found this as you posted it - gorgeous gorgeous...
    I saw this thumbnail and said, "Whose gorgeous layout is this??" It's magnificent! I love seeing your watercolors and this is truly a WOW. The colors, and the whole scene, are so lovely. I like that you included the orginal photo in the corner and that you tucked your journaling and the cute journaling strips into the corner as well, to leave the gorgeous scene front and center for us to enjoy. This is a page to linger on....
    Wow Marilyn, this is stunningly beautiful. You are so talented in so many ways. The detail work in your painting is so lovely, I keep going back to look again at all the colors. Really a wonderful page.
    I was so busy racing off to check out colours I never commented on that amazing painting... It is just beautiful... the depth of the layers and toning, it has great perspective and a real depth in that water.... love the texture too.... blending into the paper like that looks super... this is a stunning page...
    Wow, this is beautiful. I have to look at it again to be sure I absorb all of it.
    Absolutely beautiful, Marilyn. The extension of the sky into the background is wonderful, and the reflection is luminous. I always love a blue/purple palette, and this combination is lovely.
    Wonderful page Marilyn. The colors are fantastic and the painting is just beautiful. Great journaling too.
    STUNNING..simply STUNNING!
    Great job! I love it. It should be framed.
    Absolutely gorgeous! You should definitely frame it!
