Guest Designer for The Color Room (Palette #161)

I'm thrilled, excited to share the news with you that I'm a Guest Designer at The Color Room this month! 

When I first started scrapbooking, The Color Room was the place to be, all the rock stars of scrapbooking/mixed media were playing there, and I have to admit, I was a little intimidated by all that talent under one roof.  I would eagerly look forward to the weekly challenge announcements, and sit in front of my computer monitor and go through each of the design teams and participants creations, in awe over the beauty, skill and creativity.  I didn't feel confident enough to jump in and participate, or I felt I didn't have the perfect color that matched the palette.  One day, I couldn't stand by and be an outsider anymore,  I too became a participant.

The Color Room is an international color challenge site, and if any of you have not yet participated, I hope you throw caution to the wind and jump in like I did.  If you don't have the perfect color mists, paint, paper, etc., you just have to match the color as best as you can, and sometimes that might mean mixing a few paints, mists to get that color to match close enough to the palette.  Jump in an join us this month for the bi-weekly challenges, and more importantly, challenge yourself.

This color palette is so soft and dreamy with some dark brown to ground all that dreaminess.  I've used several Blue Fern Studios chipboard pieces to bring my creation to life.  And, how can  you possibly go wrong when you're working with a Lydell Quinn sketch. :)
