Colour Challenge by Jo West

eeeks, I apologize for getting on here so late ... sometimes sharing a computer with a full time student really limits my time to post ...

I loved this month's colour challenge ... any time and orange is put together with a colour from the blue tones everything just seems to pop!   could be because they are they are opposite on the colour wheel ...

and speaking of wheels ... or just big round things ... I love this picture of my daughter at Granville Island this summer ... as usual she has inserted herself into the art ...   It just made one big bold statement so i didn't want to overdo the layout with lots of patterned paper.  Instead I used small strips of paper cut from scraps and glimmer mist to take away from the highly graphic nature of the strips and the photo.  The embellishments are home made .... I used Tim Holtz fragments, covered with glossy accents, glitter and then sheer shiny fabric ... the little flower is from felt and has a small felted ball in the centre ... the flower was a breeze to make!

Do try this colour combination, it really is delicious and you can see just how gorgeous and multi purpose it is in the layouts  and cards below by Carrie, Debbie & Erica!  They have absolutely rocked this challenge and we hope you will too!!!


  1. Love the colour combo! Love the touch of glimmer mist.

  2. I love the colors and the photo of your daughter... you two sure get around!!!
