Chinook



A Chinook Arch is really something to see. We are lucky to live where we can see the Arch right out our living room window. The colors were so brilliant that morning. I had to take three photos to get the scope of the entire skyline. The background is done entirely with spray. Hint to recreate is to use a good quality artist paper for the background. Spray and dry before mounting your photos. If you look along the bottom edge, I brought the photo into the background by using a simple tree  stamp to extend the trees and shrubs into the lower part of the layout. 
This was a fast, easy fun layout to do. Visit me HERE to find out more about Chinook's

A brilliant piece of mixed media art! I had to Google "Chinook Arch" to find out what it is so you've educated me too! Lovely! Hugs, Lesley

This is incredible! I LOVE how you did the background. You recreated the colours so perfectly ... just beautiful. My daughter had a fellow from Toronto come out this month to do some consulting at her workplace, and the whole time he was there, he wanted to know all about Chinooks and was praying he would get to experience one. Unfortunately it came in the day after he left, but she took a picture of it on her phone and sent it to him.

I could use a chinook right about now :) Your layout is gorgeous - the background looks amazing and the stamped trees finish it perfectly. Brilliant!
