I love colour challenges!!! Why have I waited this long to actually try one? Last night I did the first challenge up at The Color Room. Here is the challenge.
This is my LO.
I really love this palette and yet know that I would never have used it were it not for the challenge. This forced me to search through my stash and pull from many lines. (Yeah, the studio is a mess!) I used 4 different lines of paper here and finally found a use for that BG Lemonade transparency. Yay!!!
I realized that I tend to view everything scrapping related in terms of manufacturer lines. I would have looked at these photos and automatically thought Jillibean Soup, kraft, twine and buttons. I also realized last night, that although I love the colour blue, I have hardly any of it in my stash. I have tons of greens as I usually gravitate towards organic earth tones. Hmm???
The sketch I used was by Julie Bonner. Loved this multi photo opportunity!
Here are the close ups:
These stickers are from the "Dear Lizzy" AC line. The card under the flower is from the packaging that the "Dear Lizzy" glittery brads came in. Aphra would be proud of me!! hee hee
These alphas are also from the "Dear Lizzy" line. I thought the shine of them matched the shine in the transparency.
I am happy that I have a LO that has my victorian bird house in it, as it will not be taken in the move. We have yet to have house guests in it, as the hole is too small for many song birds. I think that is what this couple was figuring out, especially in the second photo! Too cute!! I can hear her saying, "Too bad this place is too small because I really love this front veranda, not to mention this upper balcony!" (Note to self: You think way too much about birds and house sales!!)
Hope everyone is having a fun weekend and if you are looking for a colour challenge I really encourage you to play along this week! It really is lots of fun!!!
Happy Scrapping!! Jen :)
