GDT FOR CRAFTYBOOTS - MONOCHROME



Hello Everyone..

I'm so delighted to be here sharing a project as a Guest Designer for Crafty Boots ..this is a mid way post for their monthly challenge where the theme is..MONOCHROME...

I know!..I hear what you are saying..but there are so many shades of the one colour out there..just nosey through your craft room and you will so pleasantly surprised at how many things you can find in the shades of one colour..

All my canvas is, is all the things I didn't know I had and put them all on a tray and started glueing down..and the  main colour I wanted to use was ORANGE..



I had this picture for awhile and wanted to use it...so hunted through my stash and this is only half of the colour orange I had floating around...



I cheated a little bit with the buttons on the sides, but it is sort of from the same family of oranges..if you squint a bit it is..



A lot of corrugated card [old box] and wooden feathers with little toggle thingys..lace and pearls...loads of different orange flowers..strips of mesh..AND paint..lots of paint.




And a close up of the lovely picture of humming birds...


And my guest badge worn with pride...Thank you Dionne and DT girls for having me...

Things you didn't know you had....doesn't that feel like Christmas???? I love it! The monochromatic orange is so wonderfully pleasant for Autumn and hummingbirds are my little visitors right outside my craftroom windows. I love watching them. Your canvas is exquisite and what a great half way post! Congrats on that :)
hugs,
Lisa

Beautiful! The wonderful shades of orange and the soft focused background in the photo bring to mind the hazy sunshine of an early autumn day. (no humming birds here though!)

I've always loved orange and I think this piece turned out looking fabulous in all the different shades of this color. And everything is so perfectly put together. Great combo of textures too.

pinky said...

Perfect autumn display and you did such a great job with the colour. I know what you mean, its easier to find colours in the same tone that it is to find co-ordinating papers lol. I'm dying to know what you do with all these beautiful canvasses Chrissy.

Kat W said...

Who knew orange could look so gorgeous?! You have put everything together so beautifully to frame the sweet image :-)

I wonder what I would find if I hunted through my stash?!

Big hugs, Kat xx
