Favourite colours ...

... I've had these photos printed since I did the last Shimelle class and thought that the papers in the Scrapbook Circle The Good Life kit would go well with them.



Each month you also get sent a page of printable of elements that co-ordinate with the kit and I usually forget to use it, but this time I printed out the little banner flags and added some word stickers to them.

I misted the white thickers with purple but they've ended up looking a bit more black - oh well!

Very nice - I also love turquoisey-sea-blue colours and rich purples - basically those deep, rich and full jewel-like colours... yesss....

The Thickers do tend to be quite absorbent, I find. They kind-of swallow up paints and markers. You could try painting on a thin layer of pva & water, letting it dry a bit, then misting them - I think the colour should "stick" better - though if the pva is totally dried, it might have the effect of water-proofing them, so you'll need to use some permanent inks or paint instead. Still, it's worth it to get nice rich colours, rather than faded ones (though the faded effect can be pretty good!). The other thing I've done, is to cover the letters in "coat 1" of my basic colour, then go back and re-do them with a slightly lighter shade. That can work too...

Very nice page Fay. The purple works so well with the other colours - and they're definitely a more interesting choice than if you'd made a purely purple page. :-)
