Mesmerizing, hypnotic, charming, spellbinding...
Tombstone AZ was one of the highlights of our AZ trip this month. We had never spent time in AZ, and we
had a great relaxing time!
We were AMAZED at the stunning SUNSETS and SUNRISES... they took our breath away! This photo needed very little tweaking!
When I began to put this page together, I considered colors that would pop for background and nothing seemed to work well.
The color challenge was for purple, but even that dulled the sunset!
Going back to my photos of AZ I found the rock photos I had taken for "texture" and the Cactus "skeleton" at our motel. I made a block of color and attached the "title" of TOMBSTONE to the block. Then I clipped (control G) the photo to the block and gave it a slight bevel. Laying it over the rock picture it was almost done! After working on the upper journaling (Time Travel), and positioning over the sky, I KNEW that purple was the perfect color to stroke on the words! After stroking the Tombstone title, I sprinkled various shaped photos around the title, added embellies; and added journal comments in bold with a slight "outer glow" re-colored from the rock colors, and the page was DONE.
Supplies are in the details, but I used mostly photos we took,
including the awesome SUNSET in Tombstone!!!
What an awesome night show!
TIME TRAVEL: Stepping back into time...
the OLD WEST became so alive in TOMBSTONE.
We saw the re-enactment of the OK Corral shootout.
Took pictures with the actors portraying Doc Holiday,
Wyatt and Virgil Earp; had dinner at Big Nose Kates' Saloon
Visited Boot Hill where the Cowboy victims of OK are buried.
Spectacular SUNSETS... What a time we had!
Originally his page was being entered as High Noon crop from Wed 3/25, the PURPLE challenge. It really WAS a challenge to add purple to this,
but the outlined titles worked well. Now I am entering in the March Layout Contest because this memory was: " Mesmerizing, hypnotic, charming, spellbinding..."
