Welcome to the fourth and final part in the Magazine Medley mini series of blog posts,
For this creation I have tried to take green and purple and make them work!
I think I just about made it happen too!
There are a couple of things that I would have done differently however the overall result was quite pleasant.
The colouring was a little tricky as I was tying to get a clean blend between two secondary colours which, as we all know usually ends up as brown.
I used a blending pencil and the white space between the colours to help with this.
Not too shabby.
The same colour coordination concepts were used to pick matting and layering colours and these were also used within the large floral arrangements.
I was however worried that the floral arrangements might get ‘lost’ in the busy background so I decided to use a couple of doily dies to cut some white card stock for them to sit on,p.
The compulsory gems were added as a final touch.
Like I said, I quite like this colour combo. It’s certainly a step away from the usual at least.
So, what do you think?
Would you have chosen this colour scheme? If so, would you have changed the layout?
Anyway, there’s an All Counties Challenge diary blog post coming up a little later, so you’ve probably enough time to grab a cuppa and a biccie before heading back.
If you’ve got to head off, please feel free to pop by at any time.
