Being a mathematician, I find it important to approach things logically, so I've started my month long scrappy quest with challenge 2: the colour challenge. Normally, yellow and blue is not a colour combo that works for me. It's a bit primary colours, a bit bold, a bit too... not sure what, but I've never been keen.
But then came Pinterest. And so I fell in love with the colour combo below. The colours were muted and sophisticated and delicate and cheerful. Not brash and bold and brassy, but subtle and lovely. So here's my page: I went with an almost grey-blue and soft yellows, and stuck in some general grey to tone the whole thing down. And I can't deny I was hankering to use this background paper. It's ledger...that goes in CIRCLES!!!
Everybody say HECK YES. Add some layers, inky splatters and a quick camera stamp, find my journalling about the Tower of London in this post, and I was good to go.
Thanks Pinterest :D
P.S. Lovely to hear that some of you are jumping in with me :D Anyone got a favourite colour palette? Or a loathed concatenation of colour?
P.P.S. Guide Camp (indoors) approaches. Better start packing. And preparing to cater for umpteen hungry Guides. Frantically sewing badges to the camp blanket. But the to-sew-on pile doesn't seem to be going down.
