The FWAB Blog Hop is still going on here.
I've never been overly fond of colour challenges in the past. Mainly I think because colour coordinating has never been my strong point. But then I realised that's the very reason why I decided to make improving my colour choices a scrappy resolution this year. Don't avoid your weaknesses.... work on them!
One of the best places to go for a colour challenge is my old stomping ground "Scrap Friends". They always have the yummiest inspiration pieces (pun intended!) which is doubly fabulous when your scrapping topic is about food too!! This is the latest challenge:
If I'm working on something new like colour choices then I'm gonna have to stick to my tried and true style though. Nothing too adventurous here.. just my good ol' linear layers!
And of course, it's got to have a good story to tell. This is the story of how The Man keeps on watching those shows like 'Gourmet Farmer' and 'River Cottage' and getting all inspired to grow a vegetable patch. He went through with it too, which is fabulous.
What's not quite so fabulous is our soil. Despite turning it, mulching it, watering it... our ground is still so solid that the carrots turned around in a circle and grew back into themselves like a snail!! Unfortunately you can't even say 'but at least they taste good' because I'm not too sure that's true either ;-)
He's not one to turn away from failure either, so he's trying again. More turning, mulching, watering but this time with leeks and tomatoes. Stay tuned for the next installment I guess...
