"The challenge for this week’s Tuesday is “The Great Northwest.”
If you have ever lived there you know what I mean. Maybe if you have only visited there you know what I mean. Maybe if you only heard about the filming of the movie you know what I mean. It is beautiful there. There is a reason for it’s beauty….all the rain!
So from the space needle to the forests. From the rain to the trees. From the lush green beauty of it all to the Olympic Peninsula. There are so many reasons to LOVE the great Northwest.
Edward’s family chooses to live there. Bella feels she has to live there, and hated visiting as a child. Don’t forget the trips to Seattle, the coast, and into the forest. Have fun with this one!
Please join in and play along with us!
Comment portion: If you could visit anywhere in the Northwest - where would it be and why?"
Here are a few photos I chose as inspiration because I can think of the forests and the green as Bella drove into Forks WA in the book. What a beautiful place! I have always wanted to visit Seattle, truthfully it started because of Pearl Jam, Nirvana, the Seattle grunge scene, NOW I want to go to Forks, seattle, La Push because of Twilight!! I want to see the HUGE trees, the beaches, the Space Needle, I want to visit soooo bad!
Here is my card...
I took the warm greens, and browns to capture the forests of the Pacific Northwest, This dp from My Minds Eye was a perfect fit, even some orange and pink for a bit of the rustic colors reminicent of the fallen tree branches, little flowers growing, etc. I used this great stamp from Unity called Deep Woods, fitting huh? :)
I have been really liking the look of these stacked layers so that what I did. I stamped this image onto brown dp from BasicGrey in Chocolate chip in front, stamped off a bit higher and then versamark for the tips of the trees, this panel is layered onto light green dp, the main panel is green from Eva BasicGrey pack I stamped Old Olive in the front and a bit of chocolate chip ink, then stamped in kiwi kiss a higher up, then versamark for the top layer of trees. This panel is layered onto chocolate chip cs and whisper white cs to pop it out a bit. The sentiment is from Simly said Unity set.
