A Touch of Purple
By Marie-Josée Hamel

Hello, Green Tara fans!

Today, I have three projects for you, all featuring the color purple. 
Indeed, unlike many scrappers, I LOVE PURPLE! You can use it in
 various color combinations. Here are a few examples.
 "Love" layout

Here's a layout with photos of my daughter and me. 
I chose pastel colors, that is, a light shade of purple, lavender, 
as well as pink. Under the word Love,
 I used a piece of Pineapple paper in Lavendar.

I also used a piece of Crushed organza ribbon in Gold/Purple 
to create a huge bow that I put between my pictures. I then
 framed the pictures with various flowers.

"You and Me" layout

For this layout featuring my husband and me, I chose the distressed 
look and decided to combine purple with orange and teal.
 I added lots of mists to my background.

I created two clusters embellishments consisting of
 various flowers, of different sizes.

 I also added a piece of jute ribbon on top of my picture.

"Our Family" layout

For this layout, I combined complementary colors, that is, yellow and purple.

I created a big cluster of flowers under my two pictures,
 using various sizes of flowers.
