NEW LSG Colours - yippee!
Doodling for Beginners

LSG Colour Challenge August 2013

The crew over at Lindy's Stamp Gang are really excited to introduce the August color challenge! It is our hope that we encourage you to try new color combinations, and introduce you to new Lindy’s Stamp Gang colors!   To help get those creative juices flowing I have created the following project inspired by the colours in the August Color Challenge, I can't wait to see what you all create!

I did because I wanted to replicate the sunset in the challenge image.

You can see I tried to mimic the sunset, when you place the images side by side, the orange got a little lost - but I'm pretty happy with how it turned out.

 This is how I finished my page - I really wanted the pic to pop so I kept the other side quite minimal, but matched the colours.  Before anyone asks this is not my handwriting, I printed the text onto paper and glued this onto my page.
