New Lift - Passion Flower Vine

Another week, another lift for designer Anna Aspnes. This week the theme is combining her arty approach with more traditional scrapbooking looks. An article with examples was our inspiration. (see HERE) I really liked "The Little Things" by Katherine B and did my lift of it. I chose one of my photos of a white passion flower from Oklahoma. Last year we saw Gulf Fritillary butterflies and their caterpillars on this plant. Normally this is too far north for them to reproduce.The layout has one photo but I also like a second one.

  1. I love your background! The pairing of the abstracts with the photo works very well. Nice balance with both the elements and the colors.

  2. Very nice composition, I can see why you chose the layout for your challenge lift. The flower is so pretty... you got a great shot of it. I like the page alot! :)

  3. It´s a beautiful page for such a lovely, and to my eyes exotic, flower. I particularly like that Japanese looking twig fading into the very subtly shaded background.
