When I read this challenge, I'd just been commenting on this layout by Louise of Boys, Bugs and Beautiful Buttons, saying that I admired the muted colours but hardly ever used them myself as I found it difficult - if you're a regular follower you know my layouts are usually bright. I also admire Rahel Menig's (of swissgirlDesigns) use of softer colours, and I also chose to try her technique of leaving loose threads. I hope I've managed to combine it with my own style too, using distressing and paint as techniques I love:
I like how the soft colours work for this page, but I think I'd miss the brightness if I did this too often! Do you think it still looks like 'my' page?
Hope you all have a lovely, crafty, Saturday! x
