The Colour Purple

All my friends know that I love to wear the colour purple. I think it suits me. I've done a layout about it. The sketch is from Anna's Craft Cupboard's January competition. I've often admired these type of layouts, they are kind of like a swatch across the page on a diagonal. Thought I'd try one myself.

I started with a wisteria stamp which I've used twice and then coloured in with artist pencils. Plus, I've had this piece of mulberry paper for something like 6 years. Glad to finally use it.

Some close ups.

This layout is to be published in Scrapbooking News and Review's special issue on 20 May 2012.
