I'm playing along with CSI again this week. The colour palette this time was quite a challenge to me. I'm not a huge lover of pastel colours, and certainly not of apricot yellow, or purple, both of which were in the palette this week.
Here is the challenge:
and here is my layout:
I'm sure I'm not the only woman out there who longs for time and space, peace and quiet!
I decided to do a mixed media background for the layout. A few weeks back I had started a layout and not been happy with how it looked in the early stages. So I put it away and did something else instead. But I came across the discarded piece it while getting materials to make this layout, and decided to use it as the base for this challenge. This is what it looked like:
First some texture paste through a stencil:
Then some mists:
I didn't like it at this stage, so that's when I discarded it.
So I worked on it some more, with acrylic paints and mists, stamps and stencils for the CSI challenge..
Here are some close ups of the finished layout:
So, the lesson here is, don't discard what you are not happy with-you can always change and adapt for use in different projects.
I'd love you to comment and link me to your projects where you have done a similar revamp!
