Dixie Pieces Entry for Week #4

Finally finished my page tonight! This is a summer picture of us eating at "Gasthof" in Boracay Island. We loved the baby back ribs there and we couldn't eat enough of it. So glad somebody took a picture of us while eating!

So, the colors for this challenge were too bright and cute! Not a fan of bright colored LO but glad I had a few brightly colored pps.

For this challenge, paint is required so I've incorporated that by painting the bare chipboard frame from Inque Boutique. Mixed lemon and apricot MM paint to get the color i want. I stamped it with Prima border stamp and then spread perfect pearl to give it a shine. Then put blings on the top and bottom scrolls and painted the rest of the scrolls with liquid pearl (not so obvious in the picture here). The brown paper is actually embossed using cuttlebug and then i rubbed yellow chalk over it.
The letters were blank Heidi Swapp chipboards which I colored with perfect pearls too. I've also used TH mask plus color distressed the sides of the page plus the journaling card. I also stamp a small BG swirl on the right corner and a ribbon on the other side.

Journaling: Famous grilled ribs in Boracay Island. We called it "Gastos" because it's pricey but you can never go wrong with ribs and shake!

Materials used: DCWV CS (green and brownA), Bella Blvd PPS, Paper Garden PPS, Heidi Swapp chipboard alphabet, Teresa Collins travel journal cards, BG stamp, Prima stamp, AAS bling, ribbon and ribbon holder, TH distressing ink (shabby shutters, scattered straw), yellow chalk, cuttlebug embossing folder, ranger perfect pearls, liquid pearl, distress embossing powder (tea dye), stickles, TH mask, IB bare chipboard (photo mat), MM lemon and apricot paint, Colorbox Ink Pad, sharpie pen.

Okay, now that's done, gotta pack for Scrapfest tomorrow! Fun!
