Strictly No Pink or Red!!!



So every Sunday, we have a new challenge at The Studio.
I love the variation of challenges that we have. It's always nice to do something abit different. This week we have been given this colour combo.
I love these colours.
See what the other girls did with this challenge here.
Here's my page. (click on to enlarge if you wish)






Although I've used the colour combo, I've also been completely inspired by a page that my lovely friend Anna made recently. Anna has suddenly gone paint crazy. I'm talking, paints, mixed media, clays and is creating not only stunning pages but take alook at this too.

So, Anna launched a challenge over at Cocoa Daisy recently called 'paint it over'.
Basically, adding things to your page and painting over them. You can see the post here, she has put a small tutorial together.
And that's what I've done to my page. I do love adding different textures, I've added some garden string, tissue paper and some stickers and punched shapes I had sitting in a dish on my desk.
I love how it's come out.
The Cocoa Daisy challenge is running until the 10th Feb if you fancy trying out this technique too. I promise you it's lots of fun : )

Well, enjoy your Sunday. I hope you have nice things planned.
A lazy one for us. I'm starting to feel better again. Louis is going on his first school residential trip tomorrow for 2 sleeps. So we need to get his bag packed. We also have a day planned of Louis' fave foods. So homemade American pancakes late morning and piri piri chicken for dinner. Yum!!
And I think some wii games and 'How to train a dragon' movie later : )

See you soon xxx
