After a long delay on my part... I finally finished the first set of pages in the colors round robin.
I was so surprised at how difficult just having colors to use was for me. Without a theme, I was spinning my wheels and not able to focus on the task at hand.
The colors were chocolate brown, turquoise and ivory...we could splash black if needed.
This first page was the only one I had in my head from the beginning. This is actually the middle of a signature. These pages will be sewn into a plaster page book for a class, if I understand right.
These swirls are on the back of the signature. You can see the fold mark down the middle.
This next set I actually started with the back. I had the papers picked out long ago. Of course the scan isn't showing the color properly. I messed around in Photoshop a little trying to fix it but only seemed to make it worse. So imagine the colors are proper...which they are in real life. :)
This is actually the inside of that signature. I liked the poem and the color was right.
So for all my fretting about these pages, everything just sort of fell together when I put my mind to it.
I sure hope this is what Marilyn is looking for in these pages.
