Are you ready to get your socks knocked off? No, I'm not bragging about my project - but I have some exciting news to share!! I'm now officially an odd girl! I've been asked to join the Some Odd Girls Nouveau Design Team and I'm so excited! You can visit their blog to read about the other girls on the team but first, take a look at my project...

I used Believe from Some Odd Girls and paired her with the Timber Top Ridge from Make it Crafty. Also, all thee orange and red flowers are accessory stamps that come with the Believe stamp - they made a perfect embellishment. ;D Check out how gorgeous she is colored up...

This is another project I did where I experimented with the reds. Over at Make it Colourful the challenge is to use different colors to blend in with your reds. Earlier today I showed what red would look like with turquoise (click HERE to see) but on this I used RV91, RV 93 and RV95 as the base tone.

After I colored her dress with the RV tones, I went back in and recolored on top of that with the reds. I think I used R11, R21, R14, R24, R37, R46 and R59. It has more of a pinkish highlight to it like the light is reflecting at a different angle off of the fabric. Other than that, I didn't noticed much of a change... maybe it's more deep in tone? Not sure, but it was good to experiment.

Hope you've enjoyed this journal page and you'll be seeing the rest of the Nouveau Girls featured through out this month. ;D Have a great Thursday!
