Hello!!! How are you? I'm doing great over, playing with some wonderful, fun, yummy colors this week. It's the 3rd week over at http://twinkletwinklelikeastar.blogspot.com/ and this weeks colors are one of my favorite to play with. The colors for the week are..... PURPLE AND LIME GREEN!! Now in my house these colors rule, my one daughter loves purple and my son is obsessed and in love with LIME GREEN everything, even wants his house that color. I decided to inspire you again with things in these colors like the previous week's colors. This time I head out to Walmart instead of using what I have here at home. Let's go see what I found....
I LOVE tissue boxes, they can inspire you so much with their designs and colors
I love this so much, so cool looking
Shahrul, I thought of you when I saw this card
a huge yummy scrapbook paper pack, might have to go back and buy this
these are the sheets my girls had a couple years ago. they still have them so I guess that's a good thing
I couldn't resist buying these, NEON purple and lime green!!! They are so awesome and bright! When looking at these I think of Halloween and how fun to use them on a project for that holiday. Will have to keep this in mind for later. So there is just some of the things I found at the store, are you feeling inspired to create something in these colors now. Well, I was and still am but running out of time so here are my cards for this week. Went over my 3 card goal even, so excited about this. But first let me show you something else in these colors that is warm to my heart and that I just LOVE!!
my grandma's pj's. Click to see the image better, love those paisley's!! I haven't made the time to sit and doodle this but hope to one day. This is the second time my grandma's clothing has inspired me!! Now are you ready for some cards....
here is the first batch I made, all in half hour time!! That's pretty good for me. Each time I made a new one it became my favorite and now I love them as a group like this! The Surprise card has dots made from the new NEON paint I got, love these colors! I am not using blank cards, need to buy some for now it's just cardstock cut up whatever size it comes out as. So do you have a favorite out of this group? I'm not aiming for perfection, just having fun and no stress so excuse any goofs you see.
here's the second set I made today. The collage strip ones were inspired by my dear friend Susan, she just a few of these and I love them. Didn't have all that she used but I love how they turned out. Do you have a favorite out of this set? If I had to choose it would be the two on the right. I plan on using this design a lot in the following SOC weeks. Oh and the one on the left is with paper scraps and the right side one is paper tape. Didn't have much green tape so made it work best I could.
here are two I made using watercolors. I usually don't sketch/paint flowers but after doing these now I want to. This was a lesson from one of the classes I just started, more on that later.
I made this collage a couple weeks ago when these colors kept popping in my head. Had lots of fun with this one!
made this one today, rushed it and didn't enjoy it as much. I like the bottom half not sure what happened with the top half.
here is another one of the watercolor flowers. this one was started as my favorite and still kinda is!
So after all that picture overload can you handle ONE MORE!!
this is actually kinda neat but it I pushed some of it over. all my purple/green supplies are taking up half the table. Every week whatever the SOC is my table is covered with those colors, LOVE THIS!
Thanks so much if you made it thru, I know it was a lot but there was too many good things to show you!! Thanks Kristin for hosting and inspiring me in so many ways to play each week. I'm so happy doing these simple little cards, with the kids home I need quick easy things to make. I can't wait to see what next week's colors are, thinking of voting for colors I haven't used before just to make it more fun at least I hope so, lol. Now I'm off to read thru all the blogs linked up with these colors, can't wait to see what they've made. If you want to know more click on the yellow button on the top right side. Have a great day or night and see you soon with my DAY IN THE LIFE PHOTOS WHICH WAS TODAY INSPIRIED BY THE AWESOME ALI EDWARD'S!! Thank you for all your sweet and supportive comments, you make my day so much!! HUGS!
