Lots of pink over at the color room this week, at first I wasn't going to play along. My reason you ask??? Simply because I can be a bit of a colour Nazi. Why am I like this, I don't know, it could stem back to my childhood days....hmmmm, way back when I pack my clothes away into drawers by colour. Yes I actually did this.
Anyway Im getting off track, it annoys me when you can clearly see the colors of the palette and yet a completely different color is used. Ok so their is more than one shade of white, but if I threw my white shirt into the wash and it came out pink would I still call it white? Possibly not, so if the color is a dusky pink, how does it then become watermelon or hot pink???
And I have to agree these colour palettes can be quite challenging, hence the fact that its a challenge site. I get that we don't always have what we need in our stash, but to succeed and get as close as possible I have mixed paints, shimmers and chalks to get the desired color, messy....indeed it is, but that is why it is a challenge!!!!
My take of this weeks colour palette and I can tell you it was hard to get those colours remotely perfect, but I did try my best. I found by mixing Burgundy paint with Grey almost got me the colors I was looking for.
My up close shot is showing you skeleton leaves that I have embellished.
Thanks for looking and I hope you enjoyed.
