It's not easy being green... Stylin' Idol Round 4

Yes, it's time to vote again. This weeks's challenge was to use nothing but green. be more precise, the rules were as follows:

1. You must use all green on your layout.
2. The cardstock MUST be green.
3. Any patterned paper used does NOT have to be green.
4. ALL embellishments MUST be green.

Oye... my first thoughts? I don't DO green. I don't OWN green. I have to go begging to Nat to see if she has anything green.

But, once I got started and did a LO almost accidentally in almost all green, I was determined to get it done. And I am very pleased with what I came up with. It is totally different than what I would normally do. This LO actually took me 3 days! You read that? 3 DAYS!!! I never spend that much time on a LO.

Supplies used: Karen Marie Klip pattern paper, the background paper was green, but I ended up painting it "even greener" with acrylic paint. Prima flowers, Bazzill Bitty Blossoms, DCWV Paper Posies, which I inked with green ColorBox chalk ink. Misc. buttons and eyelets. Heidi Grace metallic stickers, Heidi Swapp chipboard alphas. Ranger Stickles, Marabou fun liner glitter green, Creative Imaginations ribbon, misc. other ribbon, ricrac and trim and last but not least, green felt cutout birds. Aren't those birds cute? I picked them up last Saturday when I went into the city. Trouble #1 and Trouble #2 went to the Art Museum for Children's art school, and I went shopping. Since I quit university I haven't really been in the city.

So, hop on over to Scrapbooklifestyle and vote here. All the other LOs can be seen here

Have a good one.
