GC76 Colour Challenge - Pumpkin, Avocado and Eggplant



Hi,
This is my last week as a Visiting Artist over at the wonderful Gingersnappers.......am so sad as it has been such an adventure and very challenging.

So for my final piece I created this Wall Hanging, using Corregated card from packaging, Plasterers Mesh, Twigs from the garden, Bottle top, Tim Holtz Die Cuts, Double sided card - which was a freebie from LB Crafts on their last open day and Berries from stash, plus I used some Distress Inks and a spider which happened to be passing by..........it is hung with raffia and is now hanging on one of my walls amongst a load of other hangings and alterations. Hope you like it as had great fun making it. So why not give this Colour Combo Challenge a go and for inspiration from some great creative crafters pop over to Gingersnaps.

Thanking you again for all your great support and encouragement. Have a happy week and a great weekend........I shall be out flying on my broomstick on Sunday because thats what us Halloween birthday girls do..................so duck if you see me coming as am hopeless with the gear changes and sense of direction is not good either..........lol Take care, Annette x

I think you should be one of their designers! Your pieces were all wonderful. This one looked especially fun to make-the spider is a great touch. This is the time of year when they move into the house.

Netty, that color combination is really terrific. Very autumnal, I think. Your wall hanging is so beautiful. If I had taken those same elements and put them together mine would have been a big mess. Yours is so organized and gorgeous.
