Great to be back. I've been busy in my little nook, creating like mad. Unfortunately I've only got one to show for today though... :(
This week's colour palette over at The Colour Room is a beautifully fresh, crisp colour combination, that is a totally untraditional Christmas inspiration!! I just love it! It reminds me of the white, chilly Christmas season in the northern hemisphere...... quite a blurry memory for me now! lol
This palette is featured in the Scandinavian Magazine Inzpira Magazine (www.inzpira.se) which was released this week. It is a gorgeous Magazine and contains some serious eyecandy along with recipes and oodles of other yummy stuff!!!!! It is in Swedish, so if you are a bit challenged in the multi-lingual as I am, you will still enjoy the inspiration! :))
... and some detail:
This photo was taken last Christmas at my parents home in Brisbane. The kids woke and all piled into bed with us for a cuddle before sneaking a peak at all the offerings under the tree! I love this photo, only I wish I didn't have to get out of bed to take it! Maybe this year, I'll think to use the self-timer.... :)
Here is the palette and the sketch (totally optional, as is the Christmas theme):
A real marriage of Prima, Hambly and Kaiser in this page.... oh, and TA Glimmermist of course! More of those yummy Prima mistables that I warned you you would see again. :) And how stunning are the new Crystal Palace flower sprays, also from Prima? Totally yum!
I am loving creating lots of water-marked blending with my glimmermists lately. I just spray a fair amount of water down first, then a couple of glimmer colours and just let them all blend together and dry, creating some really awesome effects. When it was almost dry, I just dripped a few spots of blue mist and watered down gesso.
Heaps going on on the family front.... as usual!! lol. Will be back on the weekend for a bit of a family update.
Thanks for stopping by. Hope today finds you all happy and doing something you love.
