Last week I tried to do the faux plaid technique with Paisley Prints and could not get it to work. Those of you who know me that when something work like I think it should work, I will continue to work at it until I can get it. I was also the one growing up when told I couldn't do something would work at it to prove them wrong. Well that was the case with this technique.
I saw this great color challenge at Picture Perfect Creations. I knew this would be a challenge for me so I decided to try the faux plaid technique with the Paisley Prints set again.
I had to play with it the colors quite a bit but I think I got it worked out. I combined it with the sketch challenge at The Paper Players.
For some reason when I saw this sketch and thought of the Paisley Prints leaf I wondered what it would look like cut into 3 sections. So I set about to see what I could do. Here is what I came up with.
I liked this so I decided to try it with the leaf as a complete image. I am considering using it as one of my Regional swaps. Which one do you like the best - the one with the image split in the above photo or the one with the image whole in the photo below.
Let me know your preference so I can get going on them.
I have the first phase of my Christmas Stamp-a-stack tomorrow and Sunday so I will not post either day. I also will be working on my swaps since I need them for next weekend. Hope you have a great weekend and I will be back on Monday with a new creation for you.
