Ok, so this is a pretty unusual colour combo for me. I don't normally reach for purple in the first place, but to combine it with grey, navy and red is not what I had originally planned. I didn't even end up using the photo I had originally picked this paper for. There you go, nothing went as planned. But I kind of like it. Do you?
I have made it a rule that if I buy a piece of paper, I have to buy one or two more from the same range so I have something to match. That's how the weird colour combo happened.
It's nice to do something totally different once in a while. So why not take the plunge and do that one thing / use that one colour / try that technique you're always avoiding?
The hearts are inspired by Cindy Porter's technique I saw on her blog (see it here), though I used inks instead of mists.
