Summer of Color 4- Week Three

Another week has gone by and it's been really busy.  Last Monday when I saw what the colors were for this week I thought to myself... "How am I going to do this one."

The colors for this week are Lavender, Plum, and Grey.  None of which are colors I use except Plum for warm highlights once in awhile.  I don't have any supplies, paints, fabrics, or trims in these colors.  What's more, I have no money to go out and buy supplies.

Enter: getting ready for a garage sale.  My husband went to Wyoming at the end of last summer to empty a storage locker that we had left behind when we moved back to the Pacific Northwest.  I would say a good 60% of my art supplies were left behind and I haven't seen them for about 4-5 years.  We've been slowly going through the boxes getting ready for a neighborhood garage sale in July.  As I went through still MORE mixed media supplies I found a few papers and paints that I could possibly use to squeak by for this week's colors.

                                                                           

It doesn't match the colors perfectly, but it'll have to do for this week!

HuGGs!

I'm so happy you found a stash in the boxes. Sometimes it's a blessing not to have unpacked everything... hehe .. trust me I know.

Love the page you did.

I love this pretty creation, Debi! I didn't have much in the way of these colors either. Eager to see what Kristin has for us next week.

I think you've done wonderfully with your stash. It's always so much fun to dig through boxes and find new supplies! Good luck with the garage sale!

You did a fantastic job of this weeks colours and I think everyone should look around the house before going off to buy more 'stuff'. Sometimes what we need is infront of us we just don't see it.
