The Color Room is Hopping!

Hi!!
Welcome to the Color Room’s First annual Blog HOP!
Photobucket
We are celebrating our 50th Palette, and we have some amazing things to share with you this week.

See the palette HERE:
You have just come from  Emma Trout’s blog, and as always she has blown my mind with 
her layout this week!!! The eye candy that she always gives us is so amazing.

Here is what I created from the ‘whitewashed’ His Room Palette:

 Hard to see what I did there in that photo, so how about some close-ups?


Some things you may not know about me......

“Heidi Kelley”

1.    I am from.........Missouri, United States and I am currently Designing for.......The Color Room, Shimmerz, and Clear Scraps. I am also an Educator for Shimmerz Paints
2.    I Live with.........my hubby, Patrick and our three children, 2 girls and 1 boy. Ahna is 9, Sarenna is 7, and Jax is 15 months. Here are all my cuties... LOVE this picture, I took it this past November. :)


3.    On my desk right now you will find.......Shimmerz paints, two buckets of paintbrushes, and my Honey Bee scissors.
4.    My favorite colors to work with at the moment are........just about everything. I love mixing hues because it makes each work something unique!
5.    What kind of themes do you often scrap? The everyday. I want to remember these kids exactly as they are - not just on special holidays.
6.    Where do you scrap?  In my studio...I love it! 

7.    What is your scrapping process?  I start totally clean (like above) - nothing on my desk, just maybe the photo. Then I really try to think about how the photo makes or made me feel when I took it - and then I don't know... it just all begins to pour onto the page! 
8.    My favorite food is........ don't laugh... vegetables. Sauteed, raw, in a salad, on a sandwich. I LOVE vegetables!!
9.    My top 3 favorite tools are....... Honey Bee scissors, Paintbrushes, and my fingers!
10. I get my inspiration from..... everywhere. Markets, signs, my kids, books, music. There is so much beauty all around us!
             11. Describe a Technique you used on your project this week...... I brushed molding paste all     
            over corrugated cardboard, and stamped it upon my layout and photo before painting, to add texture!  
       I'd love to see you try this technique on your challenge this week!

Join us in the Color room and participate HERE!
Remember to leave a comment answering the question below to be in

What is your favorite tool?

Next you are heading to Janine’s Blog!
