DLP unplanner 2016 - First Week of October

October Theme: A Fresh Start - Clear Your Palette

For October's theme (clearing your palette), I thought I would try to change up my color palette. I usually favor pinks, blues and turquoise, so this month I'm going for more warm colors. They fit the season as well!

Here is my October divider - very simple using some portions of a Bo Bunny October paper, a piece of a kraft file folder and a Dymo label maker for the theme. I didn't use my usual pocket with a tag for the theme - I'm getting a fresh start!

I added the monthly calendar on the back, swiping some watercolors through the days and splattering a darker orange paint.

For the first week's page I used the stamps from the DLP kit - just love those and they are still available separately here. I sprayed a mustard Heidi Swapp spray ink through a floral stencil for the background and added some papers and stickers.

The PAC challenge for the first week was to hide something under your art.  We've recently had some sad news that Sara's fiancĂ© (together for 4 years and engaged for 2) just broke up with her. Long story and devastating to us all. So I wrote out some of my feelings on a pre-painted card, then covered with more paint, marks and a Dina Wakley stamp.  I took photos of before and after - notice I rev erred to my usual color palette!

Not sure who Sara is, but I feel for her! Behind every door ...

Beautiful work, Susan!

Happy October
