This spread is an ode to my favorite color. It's my favorite color of nail polish, of lipstick, of balloons, of flowers... It was also an opportunity to "restrain" myself and let the color breathe on the page. And that's something I needed to do, because Michelle's Last Crusade
is a challenge to leave some space in our work. To decide when enough is enough, you must choose - but choose wisely. I've got lots of stamps I could've used to showcase my favorite color, a lot of embellishments I could've used, a lot of powders and glitzy things and fibers and crap. But I chose a simple application - just paint, paper, and little tag swatches. I hope I chose wisely. What do you think?
I tried to bring different shades but not make it elaborate. Still a lot going on here, but I tried to keep things solid.
The paper strip has different terms for shades of red written on it. Hard to cover the whole thing.
So I'd have a record, I wrote in what colors of what materials I used.
I actually managed to get this posted early, so I might manage to squeeze in two entries this month. It's Springtime, and I tend to go lighter this time of year, so I'm sure I'll come up with something :)
P.S. Mr. Pocket and I were watching Heat Seekers on the Food Network while I posted this; a lot of what they were eating could've gone into this spread. But I'm not touching that stuff!
