Hello, my name is Sasha and I'm a mother to two girls :) I'm only half kidding when I say I hyperventilated a little when I saw that we have to create a 'navy' + sequins' for August Creative Weekly. Navy (and purple) must be my least used colors so far. To say I'm being thrown out of my comfort zone is a little bit of an understatement. I have no problem what-so-ever with sequins, though. :)
First, I used my sewing machine to create the sequins pocket with a piece of patterned vellum and an enlargement of the photo I'm using for this layout. I stitched the three sides, filled it with some beautiful shiny sequins and then stitched the last side shut. Then, I decided to focus on blue-colored embellishments. I had no problem at all because apparently, I've been neglecting all the blue pieces. Who knew?! I certainly hadn't realized it. LOL.
I love how easy it was for me to incorporate other colors to complement all the blue pieces. Turns out that pink, yellow and light green, were perfect partners of navy blue! I also altered the white thickers I used for the title with some spray mist.
I must say, I no longer panic when I hear navy blue. LOL. The color is, after all, quite friendly and I can see myself using it more! What about you? Give navy a try - you might love it as much as I do right now!
