Today is my turn on Laura and Katys extended road trip - they should actually be home by now, but we'll carry on touring yet!
Each stop on the tour gets to share a few photos of their stomping ground, and taking from one of those photos a colour scheme to EPP!
Now I've done a few posts on walks lately, and I've prolly bored you all to tears with beautiful beaches and whatnot... but what the hell, I'm going to do it again now too!
This is a little bit of a cheat cos I actually live in town and this kind of stuff is what you see once someone drives you outside of town. But there you go. Town, not so interesting. They're all a bit of a cheat anyway as 80+ % of the time its usually dark, grey and rainy too....
So many of my photos only generated shades of green and brown, with a bit of blue or grey... I got bored... I really wanted to use this photo, as the colour generator (Kuler) came up with some beauties, but alas I could not get a good match from my stash. To be honest, I find that particularly hard. In fact, I probably spend more time fannying about trying to pick "the right fabric" than I do piecing anything together. And its always the thing I worry I've got it wrong - right up to (and sometimes after) finishing. I am *that* crap at it.
However. I was
Woohoo! From this beach trash photo, I was able to get this fabric pick.
I've been making flowers with 1" hexies, but to be honest, I'm not entirely sure about them. (Are you at all surprised?!)
I think if I keep going they might win me over by sheer force of number! It sure has been fun though!
Now be sure and hop over the pond to visit Jenelle tomorrow @ Echinops and Aster!
