Color Throwdown's 200th Challenge!
This week's Verve sketch was perfect to combine with Color Throwdown's 200th challenge celebrations as it had a big circle which could host a myriad of options.
The colour combo was definitely a challenge (at least for me anyway) and after much thought as to what to use, I decided to pull out PTI's Autumn Acorns so I could cheat a bit by incorporating the turquoise and hot pink as the acorn tops. Still struggling with how to best add the leaves, so please forgive me if they look a bit "off".
Two weeks of summer down and the weather couldn't be better! The sunshine and heat has finally arrived and the West Coast has come alive with the sights and sounds of summer! Feels great to finally be able to wear sandals, capris, shorts, skirts, and tank tops. Aaaaah summer at it's best :)
Thanks for dropping in today, always appreciate the company and your kind comments!
