Dutch delight

Prepare for another colourful lay out!!!
Scrapping out Loud came with this challenge:

“Split complimentary color challenge:
We have another color challenge for you all this week… but this time you are to use only 3 split complimentary colors from the color wheel on your layout….not sure what split complimentary means, check out the color wheel…”

I made you this example so you get an
idea what “split complimentary” means.

(I enlightened the 3 colours
I used on my lay out.)




I also used
Jessica’s sketch
on this one! 









Yep: colours.
Red, purple
and green;
what else
could it be
than my

Pink Paislee)



Journaling in Dutch:

“I’m not a bright-coloured type myself. I’m more the subtle person, but I make one exception: tulips!
Red, yellow, purple – the more colourful the better! Spring only begins when there’s a bunch of tulips on the table.”





“Dutch” is in my own handwriting, painted with red acrylic paint. 
The word “delight” 
is stamped. (Bought 
this stamp in Veghel last weekend, and I’m totally in love with it!) 


I used green embroidery thread (feston-stitch) to make the frame and
I sprinkled lots of little
red buttons on the lay out
to complete the
“happy spring-look”.






This was my second colourful lay out in one week (remember the one I made
at “Scrap-a-Licious) and I’ve had it with bright colours for a while…
I will return to the old familiar earthbased tones this weekend (my next lay out might well be grey!!!)
