Purple and Green


Okay -- this is my FAVOURITE colour combination. But I can't work in it. Well, I did, but it fought me every step of the way. I started in paper on a painted deli paper background (thanks again, Maria!!). It needed something, so I added a purple paint border. Then the words. then some organza around the edges. Then little scraps of fabric around the edges. Then they felt finished.

These ATCs are off today for a swap.

**** a little edit -- I could always work in green and purple with FABRIC -- It's the paper that's the problem. Paper fights me. Maybe I should just surrender. Surrender to the fabric, martha. Let the paper go..... (but I have to use it all up first...... I think that I'm pretty safe in saying that I have a lifetime supply of paper....) I can't believe that I'm having a little conversation with myself on my blog.
