Yesterday's Garden Freebie

I love the colors Kim B chose for the DSO Color Challenge this month! So soft and beautiful. I didn't know where I was going with these colors though. They brought to mind vintage for me, but I've already done that. Then I was playing around with some shots I had taken of my clematis in bloom. They grow on a set of wrought iron trellises placed to hide my giant, ugly, yet highly energy efficient air conditioning unit. A few tweeks with color and saturation and I saw the challenge colors right in front of me. So a gardening theme it was. I realized how much of the stuff in my own garden is wrought iron so I decided to add some charcoal and black to the mix. I love the way it turned out.

Here is a shot of Ms. Jewel helping me plant some annuals to give you an idea of where I went this month. She is a born gardener and just like her MiMi she doesn't like to wear gloves. She likes to "feel the dirt". *lol*


Isn't she the cutest? Now that everything is blooming she likes to help pick off the wilted blooms. We just need to work on what she thinks is wilted. :-P

Now for a peek at the full kit...

Enjoy "Yesterday's Garden" and as always I'd love to see anything you create with my kits.

Happy Scrappin'!
