I decided to try my hand at doing the weekly colour challenge over at the CSI site this past week. Jen has always been a big fan of these challenges and I was inspired to give it a try since it's been about three months since I've done a new layout and it's time I got something accomplished in that regard!
This page went together very quickly. I didn't let myself agonize over details as I usually do! I probably spent more time going through my stash to select papers and supplies than I did in actually creating the page. The "pale greyish teal" in the palette gave me lots of problems (Jen would attest to that fact) but I finally found the right shade, although as usual it has not photographed very well to show its true colour here. :-(
I used my vintage typewriter to do my journaling. This was an amazing find from our local antique market and was a steal at only $25, a gift to me from Jen and Rob during one of our "Friday Field Trips", which basically means that Robert gets dragged around half the day chauffeuring Jen and I to all sorts of places that he really doesn't want to be and buys us lunch in the process. What a guy! I absolutely love my typewriter but the one downside is that there's no easy way to correct errors other than starting over. I went through three shipping tags before I finally got it right!
I used this sketch from Creative Scrappers:
Until next time...
