There are colors that I L.O.V.E and then there are colors that I love. . .on paper; in theory. Ones that I can't seem to work with in real life. It's kinda like me and tea. I love the idea of tea. I even love the smell of it brewing. Then I take a sip and . . . yeah, not so much. I don't taste the lovely oranges, or cherries or whatever, that I smelled. Instead, I get a mouthful of warm grass water. Suddenly those images of a cozy scene, wrapped in a sweater gazing out a snow filled window are gone.
This is one of those color schemes. They are lovely. Soft. Serene. Chatterbox had a line that used this color scheme. It was in a kit back in the day. I even used the line. Loved the layout I created, but since then, I've struggled to use these. So my first shot at today's Pin-spiration (from Apron Strings' Color Theory board) would be to just use the colors. Next I'd move into the dew drops and look for sheer or transparent stuff - ribbon, acrylic, frames. The dew drops along the edges of the petals look like a scalloped edge. Just the tips of the flowers having colorswould make me want to reach for mists or stamp pads to ink with. I even think of, like the flower itself, mostly White layout with embellishments in the colors.
