I've been learning a lot about color from the palettes at The Color Room. Some seem so unlikely to my eyes, but the combinations can be stunning! Take this week's palette - lavender, dusty coral, chocolate and ivory - now I would never put lavender and coral together - but it works.

I loved Lydell's sketch - I immediately imagined a patchwork heart. So simple to do with a square punch and faux pen stitching.

I've been working on lots of stuff this week.....more to come soon. I've been loving the CHA photos I've been seeing - Sassafras, Parisian Anthology by Pink Paislee, the Jeni Bowlin butterflies, canvas embellishments, more banners everywhere, but seriously I think Crate and Webster's have has the best releases this season....I am slightly biased, of course. lol What do you think?


  1. Oh Lucy! You are doing such wonderful things. Love the details and loooove you put into it! lol

  2. this layout is fabulous Lucy! Love ALL your intricate details .. beautiful ;-)

  3. Oh my..that patchwork heart is so beautiful Lucy!!!This is so awesome again. All those little details and that photo is gorgeous!

  4. I should play over at the color room more - I'm not much of a palette player but it challenge me to try it again. I LOVE your quilted heart - fantastic!!! And I'm off to take a look at the new CHA releases you mentioned...I haven't seen much of it yet. Have a great weekend!!!

  5. You're right Lucy, the colours work beautifully! I love that patchwork heart, and your detailed work is yet again amazing me.
    Enjoy the weekend!
    Love xxx Peggy

  6. This is so cute and the colosr are amazing !

  7. I am still working through this combo of colors. I really want to get myself out of my usual colors. Let's see if I can take time to do 1 this week.
