Where on earth did the last week go?!!! I can't believe I've not got to the computer for a whole week...too much work, that's the trouble! It's play date time again and this week it's colour splash time...that seems to have come around quickly too ;)
This lilac rose really caught my eye, and I realised that although I like purple/lilac, it isn't a colour I use very often in my artwork. I also decided to challenge myself to use black lace and stitching against a white background rather than vice versa. This has meant lots of hunting for suitable materials, which ended successfully in the charity shop with a lacy jumper!
I created a tiny flag book [7cmx6cm] in matchbook style, decorating each page with scraps of paper and lace and some 'useful facts' I gleaned from the only white paged book on my bookshelf - most of them are on the creamy, old side!
Apparently our New Year didn't start on the 1st Jan until 1700 and something! Up until then it was the 24th March.
Enjoy working with these colours, and don't forget to visit our fabulous team of designers for some great inspiration!
