A Tag

Hi there!

It's time for a new challenge at Totally Paper Crafts!! The current theme is "Use your favorite colors". I don't know what about you, and whether you know exactly which colors are your favorite. In craft world it  may actually be a problem to decide, because so many things may depend on a crafter's mood, feelings and even an outside weather :)

I decided "to go with the flow". I took out my Distress Ink Pads and let myself choose a couple of them without going through a long and deep thinking process. After I chose the colors, the idea of what I'll be creating came by itself and after some time working, I ended up with this tag:

Now I wonder, are these my favorite colors or actually the rainy weather outside influenced my color picks :)
Overall, the color combination seems to me pretty fine, although this tag is completely out of the type of projects I usually do. But, hey! Isn't it the purpose of creating? Exploring yourself and finding out different sides of your "talent"? :)

Here are several more close-ups:

On the pictures here, that white gesso chicken wire looks completely white, as I'm looking at right now, but in reality I've applied over it a Vintage Photo ink, so it's not that bright :)

That will be all for today! I hope you'll join the challenge and share with us your projects, in which you use YOUR favorite colors.

Have a wonderful day and thank you so much for stopping by!
