AE Pagemaps: The Beauty of Friendship

This month's Pagemap Calendar was a great design to work with.  I knew right away that I didn't want to do a layout but something different.  Something more art inspired - like a canvas.  While it was fun using some of my mixed media 'skills' in scrapbooking, I found that it was actually difficult to do ... mainly because I seem to be gravitating towards creating with more white space and less embellishments.  Not so great for the girl who has more supplies than she knows what to do with ... and that was after a partial purge. 

I have to say that, although I am not a vintage scrapper, I really enjoyed working with the Bo Bunny Gabrielle line.  The colours are so muted and pretty.  Timeless.  It was a fun project to make and I look forward to hanging it up in my house ... somewhere.  Time to paint me a blue room!   :-)
