My beloved Puget Sound! How I miss you!!! This was a sunset pic I snapped last Christmas while DH and I were tooling around Pike Place Market and downtown Seattle on our 'day out' without the kids. (Kids were being spoiled rotten by my parents and not missing us at all! LOL) We had had our hair done up in Ballard, then went to lunch at the Pike Place Brewery and then walked around Westlake Center, the pier and down and around Century Link and Safeco, stopping in the Seahawks team store. The weather couldn't have been more perfect that day and it was a lovely day just the two of us. I have several other photos to scrap including a selfie in this same spot.
This one I took as we were leaving the market at closing. The sun was setting over the Olympics and there was a ferry on the water. A rare and beautiful winter day in Seattle, my beloved home town.
This is for the Scraplift the Person Before You challenge. I got to lift Toni-n-TN this month and when I saw her page "Remember" seen here: http://www.scrapbook.com/gallery/image/layout/5375633.html with its painted background, I knew I wanted to bust out my new Prima watercolors and try the wash technique! It was SO fun!!! Those colors are very pigmented and I loved the tin they come in because you can mix colors right there! I tried to recreate the photo somewhat though you can never really recreate the color of Elliot Bay at sunset. Anyway, it was fun to try and DH was suitably impressed with my (very rusty) watercolor painting abilities. LOL
I am also including in my Hoarders challenge as I have had that loopy title pack forever and have never used them. Since Toni used one on hers, I thought it was a good time to (ahem find) and use mine! Super happy with the results!
