Eye for design - color creative ...

... this class started yesterday. It's being taught by Christy Tomlinson from Scarlet Lime. Ever since I've been getting these kits, I've admired Christy's ability to put paper from different manufacturers together, so I thought it would be great to get some inside tips.

The first class/challenge was to take inspiration from magazines, pick out the colour palette and then use it for a LO.

Here's the article I chose -
And my resulting LO. I've used a grey, black, yellow and white palette.


I've also used the latest Butterfly Crafts challenge 11, which was to use a Disney Character as inspiration - mine being Sleeping Beauty and a 'True Love's Kiss'.
