I'm sharing this page at Soul Scrappers Screen 2 Scrap challenge, this month inspired by one of the most memorable movie posters, ever.  The artist was Roger Kastel.

Image source: Golden Globes

I included all criteria -
* Blue/white/grey {Kaisercraft Stargazer ~ Milky Way patterned paper}
* Water theme {Minnie Water ~ ocean scenery}
* Red title {Sizzix/Tim Holtz  Alterations ~ Adventure Words Script cutting dies}

I also used a large arrow-shaped journalling card (reminiscent of the shark nose).  I got this in a group swap well over a decade ago, and I have no idea who made it... but I am so thrilled to finally use it on a page! 

I was also inspired to do a bit of research about the poster and artist, and I came across an interesting analysis of the poster.

White with RED

This is my design team project for the May White with 1 challenge.

* Colour ~
Use RED on a WHITE cardstock background to create your layout.
* Mood board ~
Share which element/s inspired you {flowers, white space}
* Must include ~
Lots of flowers {handmade with cutting dies}

I used patterned paper from Basic Grey {Scarlet's letter ~ Recognition}, and upcycled tissue wrap and corrugated coffee sleeve.  Lots of little red scraps used to make the flowers.

I'm sharing my layout at Simon Says Monday for the Feminine theme.
