For those of you who have not seen this weeks palette, please go back to the previous post.
With an all brown palette this week , let me say I was in no hurry to get started this week. However, as I got going , I feet it went quite well. At least better than I feared. Lol!
We have quite a good size garden with several fruit-trees. Beatrice had been waitng for this apple to be ready for her to pick. The smallest of the trees actually have the tastiest apples!
I had great trouble finding anything brown in my stash, as I am normally a 'colour-girl'.
Found some older Prima and K&Co. I got some bookpages from my eldest DD that I stuck behind the photos. Originally I had a sepia photo, but that was too much of tone-in-tone for me! I printed out these pics of Beatrice and they made the page pop a little more. Maybe because of the colour of the apple.
I held the brown Prima pp under running water to make it soft. I crinkled it and let it dry. I then ironed it to make it flat.While wet it almost disintegrated, but after it dried it was firmeragain. The pretty ribbon has got wire in it so it can easily be shaped. I think it adds a feminine touch to all the brown. -Together with the Maya Road and Prima flowers of course.
The adorable little brown roses and the ribbon were gifts from my friend Irma in the US. Thank you so much!
