White with 1 challenge blog - Scrapbook layout "Tangerine Tango"

Hi Scrap Friends

Today I'm sharing a layout created for the challenge at White with 1
where of course the task is to start with white and incorporate primarily
the listed colour.

Here's my layout "Hello Yum"

I've declared this layout a "Hot mess".

I really loved the background but I think I just added too much to it and it now just looks like a mess of tangerine!

If you've ever watched the movie "Clueless", there is a saying about a Monet:
"Beautiful from far away but ugly up close"
That's how I feel about this layout.

But I decided to share it here on my blog because Scrapbooking is not about the perfect layout but about creating and in this case for me, learning when enough is enough.

In case you were still wondering what the colour inspiration is: 

I've started with white cardstock and then used my water colours to create a background
with some splatters. Then I've coloured most of my background using
Dylusions "Tangerine Dream" paint.
I've added a little hint of black in the background to help break things up,
then layers of white and wood veneer embellishments to finish.

Thanks for visiting.
Hope you'll get a chance to play along.
