SOC-13 Week-4

Happy July 4th to all my friends here in America.
This week the two color combo for SOC-13 challenge is Charcoal Grey and Pale Pink. Once more they are colors that I've never  tried on my pages.
So here goes:
 I did my background with these colors on Gelli plate.

I then created a collage on my art journal with them and also added some more elements to it.
The quote says: "Your treasure house is within; it contains all you'll ever need." (Hui Hai)

I've come up with a simple page but love how the colors complement with each other.
Isn't it true that we have so much creativity within us, that there is a treasure house inside each one of us? Only thing is that most of us don't realise our own potential. I don't think my imagination would have played with these beautiful colors if it wasn't part of this challenge. So once again, Thank you Kristin for hosting such a wonderful event.

You can see more wonderful SOC-13 works here.

Have a safe and happy holiday everyone
