I completely threw myself out of my element with this week's Scrapbook Steals sketch, which can be found here. I have had a kit from Cocoa Daisy sitting since I got it. I have tried to get myself to use it, but every time I try, I decide against it and go for something else. This time, I actually succeeded in using it. I used PINK all over the place. The absolute hardest thing about using pink when it's not a color you use often is that you have hardly anything from which to pull from. My red inks and markers really had to serve as my pinks in this case and it worked with some heavy watering down and mixing of yellows in some cases as well.
The 'together' banner was originally colored halfway up in a light pink marker and then inked over entirely to give it a two tone look. I was going for the same look (but opposite color dominance) as the heart to the right of it, but I don't have a good pink ink, only a marker. The effect isn't the same, but it works well enough for me to still like how it turned out.
Let me know what you think. Be it your thoughts on the layout or (if you know me) the fact that hell must have frozen over for me to have used pink on anything. ;) Thanks for stopping by!
