I am a Guest Designer at the Colour Room

All the ladies on the Imaginarium Designs Team are being Guest Designers at the Colour Room. This week it is Askua and my turn. If you haven't visited Askua's blog then make sure you do. She is the most amazingly talent lady I have seen for a long long time. It was really hard having to put my work along side hers.
I had trouble with this palette as the colours were hard to find. I loved the blue/grey/brown colour. You can see I had trouble with this colour, I can't even describe it properly! Again I had no photo in mind, but when I was looking for the perfect photo, I remembered this one of my Grandfather and me. His suit was nearly a perfect match and I love the photo. I am about 2, my Grandfather died when I was 8, but I still remember him. The rocking chair we are sitting in is my Great Grandmothers, and will be mine one day. I have photos of my Grandfather, on the other side of the family, sitting in it, holding his first great grand child and my first child. Will have to to another page one day just on the rocking chair.
Heather and Steph have been encouraging me to leave some negative space on my pages to "rest the eyes" as Steph says. I struggle with this as I need to fill my pages and if there is space left, I feel I have left something off!
Anyway, I have a tutorial on the Imaginarium Designs Blog on how to use perfect pearls and chipboard if you are interested in looking. Remember to vist Auskas Blog, and the Colour Room Blog. I have created links for you to click.

If you leave a comment here and at Imaginarium Designs Blog, you double your chances of winning some of their amazing Chipboard.

I will have some Graphic 45 projects to share soon and some altered art projects as well.

If you have not booked into a class in Brisbane yet, with me and would like too then click on the link on the left and book in now. The Classes have been extended to 30, so as of yesterday there were spaces in all of them.

Can't wait for the Expo, it will be a new experience for me and I hope to see some familiar faces, old friends and more importantly make some new ones. If you are visiting the show, please make sure you come and hello.

thanks for looking
