EDITED TO ADD - IF PLAYING ALONG AT STUDIO 75 FOR THIS CHALLENGE
PLEASE NOTE THAT YOU MUST FOLLOW THE COLOUR PALETTE EXACTLY,
ONLY ADDING BLACK & WHITE, NOT A TOUCH OF ANY OTHER COLOUR!
IE NO BLUE!! My bad :-p
Hi everyone! Happy Weekend!!
This week has been SOOO busy - missing just ONE day, spent in bed thanks to
the flu, has had me catching up ALL WEEK!!! So I am feeling a little frazzled
as I write this but on my way to run a hot bath once I am done!
We have a NEW challenge up at Studio 75 HERE today.
It is a colour challenge - rules are on the blog but basically you need
to use the colours & can include black & white & perhaps just a
SMIDGEON of another colour as I have done here with the blue!
Studio 75 have a jolly new collection called MAGIC TIME & we have based
the challenge on the colours. It is available in their online store HERE. As
usual it contains lovely muted shades of the traditional Christmas colours
& has outstanding prints of Santa & all the other lovely holiday imagery.
Of course I couldn't leave the paper along & had to attack it with modelling paste,
gesso, microbeads, mica & mists! Oh & glass beads too!! Plus glitter spray -
as you do... All Prima Marketing goodies of course!!
I used some leftover photos from our merry jaunt to Paris a couple of years back
as they are all I have of our Christmas memories for that year - away from home!
Take note of the LÓuest Hotel - very central & friendly, English speaking staff!!
The ribbon also comes from Studio 75 as does the lovely chipboard clock face you can
see peeking out from below it. I double-bowed the ribbon - a must have trick you
need to learn if you don't know already - check out the great tutorial HERE.
I fussy cut some of the images from the Magic Time Collection then also added
some Prima flairs & flowers from their Christmas Collection too! I sponged
over various areas of my page right at the end to add a snowy look...
***QUICK TIP - Remember to cut your flowers in half to make them stretch further.
Not EXACTLY in half as you need to save the precious stamens so cut to the side
of the centre to have one 2/3 piece & one 1/3 piece as you can see above.
Tulle is another great addition to your texture arsenal. It's inexpensive & easy
to store so remember to grab a bit of that next time you see it. White is the best
as you can spray paint it & recolour it - unless you want a perfect clog-free
look - in that case buy it precoloured!
I hope you will join us with our challenge this month! Remember you do NOT
have to use Christmas photos or any Studio 75 products if you do not have,
but you do need to make sure the bulk of your creation follows the colour scheme.
