I am thrilled you stopped by! I am an avid scrapbooker and spend all my free time creating my scrap-dungeon. Of course, that's when I'm not at the dance studio with Dolly, reading and drinking diet coke or planning my next Disney vacation. I would love to talk to about anything under the sun and you can contact me about my blog at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Good Morning! This month the Lipstick Chicks were challenged to work with colours they don't normally choose. It truly was difficult! Mostly because there aren't many colours I wouldn't choose if the photo's called for it! I love colour and I try to use it as a tool to ad meaning to my designs. So I looked a my stash of patterned papers and wondered what was sitting in my "TO DO" pile. I loved Authentique's Gathering line but had a terrible time pulling it out to use it. It was settled; I would use the Orange, Aqua and Brown, even if it killed me!
This design features a large chipboard circle from Harmonie that is covered in mist and inks to make it look like suede. I fussy cut dozens of poppies and layered them and popped some up. This photo from Angela Smith of Waterloo is special to me and I wanted to give it the extra special treatment.
It wasn't so challenging after all once I got started! I hope you'll pop over to the XOXO blog and see what all the Lipstick Chicks have created this month and be inspired to use some challenging colours yourself.
Keep doing what you love,
