Colour Creations Blog Hop - Week 31 - Lost Lagoon


Contributors to this blog hop are all members of Claire Daly's Art With Heart group. We love chatting, crafting and getting together in person. 

This week our projects showcase Lost Lagoon, which isn't actually as green as it seems in the sample above. Lost Lagoon might just be my favourite returning colour, it goes so well with many other shades. I've used it with Garden Walk 6" X 6" DSP and it was included as a card in my November classes. All the classes enjoyed making this card and saw it as a way to be able to use up more of their pretty patterned paper. I had seen Emma Goddard demonstrate this fold several months ago, using Zoo Crew.

The background of these two sheets of Garden Walk seems to be a lighter shade of Lost Lagoon, and there are small flowers in that shade while the leaves are Pretty Peacock.

There are no dies with Modern Garden so the flowers were fussy cut and I used a die from Timeless Charm for those lacy leaves.

Next we are heading to the blog of my lovely friend Catherine Proctor. I'm sure you'll love her project.

If at any time you find a broken link or would like to see a full list of participants, please head to the blog of our host of the AWH Colour Creations Blog Hop, Catherine Proctor.
