Color Combos Galore

 Yep its raining again, the paper is soggy, nothing is drying and it feels like I haven't been that productive.  Of all weeks to take on challenges that require me to use textured paste and mist, it all seems to becoming together in one gooey mess.  Yes, I could use my heat gun to dry each application that I have applied,  but even the heat gun doesn't seem to be getting anything dry.  Needless I will solider on.

I did get this page to finally dry that I created for Color Combos Galore Palette 232. 
 I love colour challenges mostly because it challenges me to work within the confines of that palette.
 Its definitely not everyone's cuppa tea, I'm sure a few will shy away from the challenge because the tones in the palette are not what they would normally work with, but then isn't that why its a challenge?

Its so great to see Janet back creating her beautiful palettes again along with the added extras to challenge yourself.   We would love you to pop on over and check these gorgeous palettes out along with some very inspirational work from our Design Team and Inspirational Boards.

Palette 230

 I made this card for my daughters, boyfriends mother which apparently she just loved.  I have used the Lost & Found 3 range from My Minds Eye. 

Palette 232

This picture is of my DD, her first time in the pub playing pool, on her 18th.
I used a old Pink Paisley paper for the background then layered it with my paper choices.
 I don't often do gimmer mist first it just depends on what I have in mind when I start a page.  
After I had everything glued down I decided some splashes of glimmer mist would be good.

  Since nothing was drying, I grabbed some tissue to dab some of  the excess off and thought what the heck just smear it all over.   lol
 I actually like the effect it created in the end.
 I also used one of the Craftérs Workshop templates for the paint splatters.

There is such a mix of products on this page I think I will just leave the discription this time.

Thanks for looking and I hope you can join us over at CCG.

Bye for now
