A couple of Color Swap beauties!

 

I’ve been MIA this week but I want to make up for it by sharing these beauties with you!

I have had the pleasure of participating in a “color swap” with six other women for the past few months, we are getting close to the end….but the goodness just keeps on coming!

Each person selected the colors for their own pages…..mine were kinda’ tough, unless you like bright colors….I choose hot pink and orange!  My friend, Elizabeth, made some magic with those colors…..as in the sampler above!

Fun, fun, fun…..I’d wear this dress to a party anytime….well, it would need to be a “little” larger!

So, creative, fun and colorful…..you’ve got to love it.  Thank you so much, Elizabeth.  Check out the artist’s description and learn what her processes were when she made these pages at Elizabeth's blog Altered Book Lover.

This reminds me of a teacher I had in middle school who always wore pink and orange clothes, shoes and lipstick, etc. together...it was so funny...but the color trend is so IN now...and I have to say I love these two together. They turned out so prettily!!!!! I want to do something mixed media so bad...but never know what to do...I can only drool over all you and your artist friends stuff!!! :)

I may "borrow" the dress photo because it is so much better than anything I tried to photograph. And putting it on the scanner would have been a nightmare. It's good to see the tulips were still elevated a bit when they got to you. Never know about the PO.

I'm thrilled beyond words that you like these. I love the two colors together, but felt I made a mess of things when I created the back side of the sampler.
