Blue and green are my all time favorite colors - especially together. They simply make me happy. So, imagine my delight when I saw the new color challenge at Lasting Memories (#281). Here is the palette:
This is what I created:
I must have pulled out 20 different pieces of paper to make this color combo work - I just could not decide which patterns to use! After a decision was made, I started to layer my papers and pick embellishments.
I kept the souvenir photo in the jacket in which we received it. Though it does not photograph well, I adhered the middle of the jacket directly onto the paper. I then put foam tabs under the outside edges. The idea is to make the jacket appear like an open book. Subtle, very subtle, but it works.
AND - if you follow my, you know that I struggle with my alphabets all the time. I never have the right letters and I have so many letters that I have this strange desire to use reduce my stash! So for my title, I did not have "e's" nor "r's." UGH. So the I use an old trick. Turn "3's" around to make the "e's" and cut "p's" to make the "r's." Finally, to add just a little more finished look to the project, I inked the edges of the base paper.
I hope you can join me in this awesome color challenge! But hurry, links are due this Friday (2/26).
