Grungy Monday - Colour Wash


Another lovely challenge from Linda over at Studio L3 Exploring Adirondack Colour Wash.  Great!  Only problem is I only own two - Sailboat Blue and Butterscotch.  And ... I've never really used them either.

I was very inspired by the Guest Designers pieces, including Linda's wonderful scarf.  I am also a GREAT admirer of Hels' work too and have sitting on my desk a lovely piece made by her absolutely bursting with grungepaper roses.  So as I haven't made one for quite a while I thought it would make a good project for the Butterscotch Colour Wash.  I really liked the way the mountboard took the two colours as well, but it is amazing how the same colours are so much darker on grungepaper - making it look as though I own more than just the two (lol).

So do click the link HERE and hop over to Linda's blog and the details of the challenge.  Do please have a look at the wonderful projects being submitted, particularly Linda's scarf, as all the projects show just how versatile this product is.


Thank you (again!) for a great challenge Linda - I will certainly be using mine more often and adding to my little stock.

Wow, Jennie! I mean... WOW! This is stunning! The Color Washes gave the background such a rich, vibrant look, and the beautiful, earthy rose and leaves are just perfect against it. Nice touch with the lace, too. I hope you hung this in a place of honor-- it's wonderful!
