Well I was totally challenged by this colour - or lack of colour scheme.. I am not even sure I have done it right? Think it is supposed to be on white cardstock? I didn't have anything grey to mask with on white so I opted for black instead. I watered down white paint. Used th girls water spray to mist it on. Even still you can barely tell I masked the clouds..Sigh.. Lack of grey materials too - so I photocopied some of my new boy papers.. I did find some grey stuff upon closer inspection of my scraps though..Worked ok. Anyway...I decided to do it ..But I really do prefer colour in my life!
So I ventured over to the Colour Room ....Surely their title implies a much more appropriate challenge for moi...Well monochromatic green isn't exactly the colour palette of my choice, but I had a go and I quite like the natual feel of this colour combo. So much so that I added my little woodland friend, a little tree and some handdrawn grasses too! Of course I was able to use my lovely chocolate and green glimmermists too!
And after all this..I had a play on my own and SPLASHED out on colour... I love this range of boy papers from Echo Park.. So fun and bright.. Like my little fella in the plane and his banner? It definitely needed a pilot! Got this idea,( along with my clouds on string - from a previous post ) from the Cottee's: 'I'll change my name to Elizabeth' advertisment! And the other 'little fella'...Well he was only minutes old in these shots and giving his lungs a little test run!
