Well its reveal day today, or should I say yesterday..... This time difference can throw you just a little.
The colours this week had a bit of a Christmas feel for me, however I settled on a fun picture of my daughter and one of her friends she made on a cruise a few years ago. As I mentioned in my last post I found these pictures on her computer, I will scrap them and unbeknown to her she is going to journal them...lol
Janet and Camille did a fantastic job coming up with this weeks palette although I did struggle a little with the stone colour. Its one of the colours that I couldn't find anything remotely close without it being to light or dark. In the end I got out my trusty Jo Sonja paints and made a mix of Hookers Green, Paynes Grey, Nimbus Grey and some Green Oxide and whilst when it wet it looked the perfect colour yet it dried much lighter than what I was expecting.
Lesson: Watering down said colour can cause it to dry much lighter. And for some reason I always seem to focus on the hardest colour and spend way to much time fussing about over it, maybe the lesson should be to use a tiny little bit and tuck it away some where on my page...hmmm next time.
However I was happy with the overall page and it did push me try a colour I wouldn't normally use.
This week I used Inspirational picture 3, can you spot what the focus might have been?
This week I'm going to pass on the product list as this really was just made from scraps out of my stash.
