Picture Color 6/11 - Best of Both Worlds

The prompt was for the pink/red color combo...or to choose another combo that we never "got."  I have to admit I never "got" the purple/orange color scheme so prevalent in Halloween scrapbook kits. But when I created this Art Journal page to celebrate my 50th birthday, the color scheme just "happened" organically.

And now, thanks to a functioning computer, access to PSE8 and my external monitor, I'm actually able to show you this page properly post-processed (it needed some brightening) and in the correct orientation.  Ahhhhh.... that's better.

It is such a relief to have the computer stuff operational!
I know what you mean about the colour combination - not one I would gravitate to but you have made it look fantastic!

This is gorgeous! I love the color combination, and I love the title of this page.

I have grown to love this color combo. I didn't get it at first either. Actually, I didn't get a lot of orange combos at first. When I started at UF, I thought orange and blue was the ugliest combination possible. Now I'm into all sorts of orange combos. I think my next orangey LO is going to be orange and grey ("so a few years ago," according to the fashion mags, but I think it's still pretty).
