remember all the colours that you aren't supposed to use together?

...you know...*blue and green, never should be seen*...and the *fact* that red and pink clash horribly? well i thought i'd go for it on this page...and use just those 4 colours!!! let me know what you think...i really like it! ;0)

this page is also my response to Shimelle's prompt to use up flowers that have been languishing in my stash pile for a while...and i managed to get 12 paper, 2 fabric, one shaped brad...and a whopping great Prima flower that i hadn't been able to bring myself to use! i also used up a scrap of floral die~cut paper...and a little doily {how do you spell that, i wonder...?} i'm also thinking it qualifies for her *use your metal embellishments* prompt too...as i squeezed 16 brads int there too! lol
do you recognise the Sizzis die i've used to make the sprig coming off the large rose? its the same one i used here...but it looks totally different as a rose, huh? ;0)

this page is actually my response to the *use your metal* prompt...but now i realise i used more metal on the first page!! lol

i did get 6 brads and a metal word *friend*...which i've co~ordinated using alcohol inks...and everything else {except the bling} is from my scraps pile...old, old stash...given a new lease of life!
hope you're having a chocolate fest today...and a little crafty escape xx

I love it Alix, the rule breaking works for sure, great Lo. And I spell spilt the same way you do. I think!

Both fab layouts Alix, and I love the colour combinations - especially on the top one where I'd never have thought of doing this, but it works SO well!!

I have to say I've never really understood why you can't mix all colours together, for me the more colours the better LOL. And your layout proves that - it's just gorgeous :)
