The Color Room Pallette #91 "Di.......A Self Portrait"

 Hi everyone. I hope you have all had a great Christmas & a well deserved break. I know I have, but alas, back to work today. It just goes too quickly. Anyway today I would like to show you a page I did last night for the current challenge #91 over at The Color Room. This weeks colours are red, yellow, orange & blue. Not a colour pallette I would normally do, but I do soooo love how this site just pushes you way out of your comfort zone sometimes, I guess that is what it is all about. I have chosen to add black to my layout to create some contrast, instead of the normal white we all seem to use these days, I just felt it added a bit more impact. I have also done a "Self Portrait" which is something I never do. These pics were taken  about 3 years ago. There not that good but hey, they match the colour pallette!! I look a bit ridiculous with the flower in my hair but we were going to a pool party.
I have used loads of Gesso, Misting & I have totally scrunched my background, just for a change. I have also distressed, sewn, stamped & painted. I hope you like it. Until next time. Happy New Year.
Cheers Di  xoxo
