More Corrugated Magenta

Today I am sharing two more projects using the Magenta corrugated buttons for a feature I did on them on the Magenta blog.





I loved these photos because of the sky behind Alex.  She had climbed onto stacked hay bales and I was looking up at her which is how the clear blue sky became a beautiful backdrop.  Her orange sweater and dark brown hair contrast so well with the blue of the sky.  The photo became my inspiration for both the title and the colours used.





I am really pleased with how these turned out even though I kept both very simple as I was still dealing with vertigo.  I have to say that trying to scrap was hard enough but taking pictures of my projects, while experiencing vertigo, presented a whole new challenge.  Not only did it take way longer to set up a photo but I had to take so many more pictures to get anything that was usable.  Looking forward to getting back to 100%, that's for sure! LOL!


TTFN,

Very cute, Cassandra! I love Magenta's corrugated stuff and their laser cuts. I'm going to try to pick some up this week at Scrapbook Queens (don't tell my DH that I'm shopping! LOL!).
