Meg's Garden - The Color Room, Palette #92

Meg's Garden - Sponsoring 'The Color Room', Palette #92

 For the month of January, Meg’s Garden has sponsored ‘The Color Room’.  Each week during January, one of the design team members will each be featured, as ‘guest designers’.   The design team members were sent an amazing selection of the new collection of papers by Denise Ann, called “Le Belle Jardin”. Also, included was the most elegant selection of embellishments.

Colours: Antique Blue, Eggplant, Custard Cream, Rustic Rose
You can find 'The Color Room' ning site "here".  Come over and join in the fun of the challenges, and see all the 'other' beautiful interpretations of the colour palette's, and sketches. 

All my papers edges were distressed, and inked using 'Distress Inks'. Glimmer Mist was applied on the roses, though sadly only the photograph below, shows a more 'truth' in the actual colour - they are not black!  I incorporated a page from an old Uni dictionary.  The dictionary page was distressed by spraying with glimmer mist (just a sparkle, more to wet the paper), and rolling the page into a ball. I unravelled the paper allowing it to dry.  A little distress ink wiped here and there, across the paper, to enhance all the lovely creases.

Adriana is the design team member being 'featured' this week in 'The Color Room'. Do call on over and view the other Design Team members blogs, and view their interpretations of palette #92 - Gayle, Adriana, and Denise. ...and, do not forget to call on over to the Meg's Garden Blog to see other beautiful creations and interpretations...

Products in my "ADORABLE" layout include:
Paper: 'Articles de Paris'
Charm Frame
