Once again it's Friday and the week has just swooshed by! Thanks to all of you sweet ladies for your get-well wishes! I am happy to report that I actually tasted the coffe I was drinking this morning and could smell the tantalizing wafts coming out from our little corner bakery. Life is returning to normal pretty soon - yay!
Heard a really silly song played on the radio this morning and then I couldn't get it out of my head. I just say Barry Manilow ... Had to make my cool 1980's disco moves to the utter shock of the cats who really looked like sphinxes watching mummy making a fool of herself. What the heck, nobody else there to see me and if they had, well - who cares!
What do you say about Buttercup Yellow, Sage Green, Off White and Avocado Green? if that isn't spring totally sprung I don't know what is!
The Australian online store Meg's Garden are the January sponsors of The Color Room and this is the third palette using the beautiful papers from their newly released paper collection. The palette is specially designed after the sweet paper called "Green Toile". Meg's Garden have very generously donated papers to our DT to work with and what a joy it has been!
Check them out HERE
Here's the page I made:
The sharp observer will notice that the paper I have used is not the "Green Toile" but another one from Meg's Garden, it's called "Wild Flowers Field" and has the same colours.
I started with a houndstooth paper from MME Lost & Found 2 as cardstock. On top of that I have brown cardstock with punched leaf border and on top of that, another grey & white checkered paper from October Afternoon and on top of THAT, grey cardstock before the beeeeeautiful patterned paper.
I unravelled some of the hessian and made a bundle that I tucked in there next to the berries and sunflowers that I have cut-off from a Petaloo vine.
The grey & white alpha stickers are from October Aftrnoon.
Really cool guys on a warm summers day in about 1950. The handsome bloke who is number 2 from the left, wearing a white hat, is my FIL.
The brads are from MME L&F 2.
Subtle misting and splatter in different green, brown, and yellow hues.
The brown cardstock alphas that form the word "buds" are from Lily Bee
The papers are so incredibly beautiful in themselves that one really doesn't need a lot of texture or mediums to make them stand out.
Have a little something up my sleeve coming up in March. Might have something to share with you in April too and what do you know, even something in June and July too .... Making those silly moves again just thinking about how bountiful life is to me.
I will be back on Tuesday when I will share my CSI case file 3 with you.
Toodelipip! enjoy your weekend!
