Color Matching

Most useful tool:

I use this color wheel when talking with clients. Just how many colors of blue are there? This wheel makes matching and coordinating colors a snap. It has an audition window, combinations for 3 and 4 color combos, and makes it easy to pick out accents, lights, darks, and mediums for your project...any project.

Jane Jenkins Peacock

I found this in one of Jane Jenkins books. I loved her tone on tone but wondered what a bit of color and sparkle would look like. I used holofoil edged and parchment papers, swarovski crystals, and a beautiful background paper. Thanks for your inspiration Jane. I hope I did justice to your design.

Spring cards

Spring cards coming soon to the Porcelain Rose. I love this collection of Jack and Jill papers. I used the holo-foils edged papers to give a bit of sparkle. It is amazing how the paplin pastels and the English papers match.
