The Winter school holidays have arrived, and images of warm, woolly sheep are rather comforting as we shiver our way through this particularly chilly week.
Less is More has a fabulous Challenge this week, where you are asked to make a CAS card using the colours of your kitchen. This has to be the most original Challenge idea I have come across, so I tried very hard to find time to play.
My kitchen is…well…
old classic! I haven’t included a photo because it’s not clean enough the light’s not right. It is not fancy, but it’s literally at the centre of our home and hearts. So much happens in and around our kitchen – meals, homework, food prep, washing up, dishing up, casual conversation… and for that I am very grateful! The colour scheme is dominated by rich dark brown, salmon and cream ( I prefer to call it vanilla), largely attributed to the dark jarrah cabinetry , light wall tiles and benchtop, reconstituted stone benchtops and pinkish hue of the terracotta floor tiles. While this might sound like an odd combination, the fact that these fixtures are in their natural colour, helps. Hopefully, this adequately explains my colour choice. 😉
And last, but certainly NOT least, I have Gerda Steiner’s ADORABLE little sheep from her ‘How are Ewe?’ set, paper-pieced with the colours of my kitchen! So, I will also share this card at the GSD Share Your Design Challenge #22.
Enough from me! Thanks for visiting!
