Project - Summer Adventure B/W

I took these photos back in the summer of 2010 on a day trip to Henry Cowell State Park (Santa Cruz). I haven't scrapped many B/W photos but thought now was the time!
I was inspired by two challenges: “Glitter Girl's: Bold Paper” and “In The Mood To Scrap: Where You Invest Your Love”. I took using a floral paper as an accent, and maybe pulling in a floral embellishments (I used the floral sticker) from “Ih The Mood”. And I focused on contrasting neutral colors with really BOLD paper, from “Glitter Girl”. Both challenges used very BOLD/VIBRANT papers, so I tried to do the same.
I think that in the end using B/W photos worked really well to contrast all the loud patterns. Since B/W makes me think of “classic” or “vintage” I also decided to incorporate “text/newspaper” as an embellishment. The frame surrounding the top photo is stamped with a newspaper print in gold, but it's hard to see in the photo.
** Many of the embellishments are from a Paper Cottage set that I got on here, but cannot find them :/
