"Cherish"

Hello i just wanted to pop by today and share with you the page i created with this weeks palette over at The Color Room. I continue finding myself being pushed to the limits sometimes with these palettes because of the colours used in them. I pretty much tend to say every week how much trouble i have with the palettes mostly because they are colours i would generally never use and they take me way out of my comfort zones, which is what they are meant to do, but i am glad because now my albums will have more pages that just aren't pinks and purples :p I actually am devising a little plan of action these days to overcome the challenge and to use up my scraps, as well as push me a little further than what i would normally go. I start by printing out the weeks palette and then forage through my stash to find items that go with the weeks chosen colours, regardless of whether they end up making it on my page or not. Think of it as making myself up a kit. Then i will chose a photo that will go and which ultimately will decide which embellishments will go and which will stay.  This week i decided to cut off the scallop border of a Making Memories die cut paper that has been in my stash for a long time and i used a pizza box that was on my desk for the background. My background actually was meant to be different but it didn't look right so in the end i scraped it over with some texture paste and flicked some Glimmermist on then ran my chalks over it as well. I must admit this is the first time i have pulled out my chalks in a long time so it was good to continue the use it up approach!! I decided to scrap a photo of one of my sisters and i. I just wanted to create a page about our sisterly bond and how much i do love her and although we are quite similar she is has her own wonderful uniqueness that i wouldn't change for all the tea in China!!!

Pushing ourselves to different limits bring new creativity to our art or so I seem to think! Nice work!
