First off I have to say a huge Thank You to Lisca, (Scrapping Cavewoman) for a lovely envelope full of goodies she sent me.She does an awesome decorated envelope, and the postage stamp is incredible.
Here are the goodies in all their glory- decoupage pieces, ephemera of all sorts,a great postcard of a flamenco dancer, rub on tattoos- all sorts of wonderful bits.
On my desk right now, a journal. I've been logging all those wonderful colour blends & combos you see on Pinterest. Yes, I have them pinned there, but the problem is that every time I go to have a look at them, to find one to use, I get distracted- well it is Pinterest- and then pouff! a couple of hours have vanished.
So, I thought I'd put them down on paper, then I can keep it in my desk drawer.
I don't like to print them off, as printer ink/monitor settings etc frequently changes the colours too much for my liking.
I also had a bit of a go at making some blends of my own.
I tried using some of the colours not used so much in the original ones.
It's not always easy to be sure which particular combo of colours will work as well on paper as they do in your head- that has come out badly sometimes.
Then I though while I was at it, I'd log a swatch of each colour in colour families in the back.
It's funny, we always think of Tims colours favouring the grungy browns, but there are actually more greens than any other colour, browns included.
Only by one,11 greens to 10 browns. If I'd included Peacock Feathers, which I see as a greeny-blue, it would be 12.
And, going back to Pinterest- when did they do that sneaky change? Sometime Tuesday afternoon, for sure, 'cos it was the 'normal' Pinterest when I used it around lunchtime, then, Tuesday evening, we have a whole new look.
I'm quite sure I don't like the size of the font they've chosen for your boards- it's so large, you only see half the title! Ok, I'm done, so I'll see you later, have a great Wednesday.
