The layout below is one I did last year for the Textuality class at BPC... In the photo my grandmother is wearing lilac... when I was working on this layout at the weekend crop I was at, I remember telling my friend Wendy... my grandma loved wearing lilac or purple and that these were not colours I had an affinity to... first mistake! That night when I returned home I was looking at what I might wear to the crop the next day... low and behold... I found my lilac hoodie... since then... I have intentionally incorporated purple, magenta, aubergine and other various shades of the colour purple into my wardrobe! Thanks Grandma :)
A card I made this year that was sent off to Jacky... This was made using Ranger Inks.... Magenta and Turquoise... one of my most favourite colour combos!
Here is another example of using purple in a project I worked on this past summer... A canvas made from Christy Tomlinson's Creative Colour class which I absolutely loved! You can read more on this post here
Here is the layout I finished last night... I bought some of the Prima Moulin Rouge papers the other day at Treasured Memories and felt they worked well with the purple my mom is wearing...
There you have it... a few ways to incorporate purple into your projects... If you would like to see more purple coloured layouts or crafts I have created, click on my "purple" label...
Thank you to Julie for her inspiration and posts on purple!
Just in case you wanted to learn a bit more about purple, I googled "the meaning of purple" and came up with a list of sites... I found this one interesting.... And with that... I am off to make dinner... Enjoy your evening.
