Love of Color - CTMH Technique Blog Hop

Welcome to this month's Technique Blog Hop where several Close To My Heart Consultants are featuring our newest how-to book, "Love of Color"!

This publication includes breathtaking artwork that illustrates how to create perfectly balanced color combinations as well as references different card and layout sketches from our other Make It From Your Heart reference. It fits inside our Everyday Life album, is 3-ring hole-punched, and measures 8 3/8" x 6 7/8". 

If you're like me, and create best when you have a source of inspiration, you definitely want to add this to your library. You can find all of our How-To Books through the link. 

If you are coming from Tamara's Blog, you are on the right track. You can find a complete list of participants below. 

I am featuring this color combination of Sapphire, Candy Apple, Cover, Linen and Mink, on my artwork. I wanted something I could use to make another Christmas card and felt this worked, referencing Clover in the index. This color combination can be found at the bottom of page 48 in "Love of Color". 

The card sketch is Pattern 24 from Make It From Your Heart, Volume 1. The card that inspired me is found on page 47 in "Love of Color". 

Because I wanted to do a bit more with the "Ugly Sweater" stamp set, I decided to use it here. It is obvious how I pulled the color combination together.

The sentiments in the stamp set continue to make me giggle. My work Christmas party is "Ugly Sweater" so they will receive these as their Christmas cards.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Keep moving along the hop by heading to check out Haley's creation.

Happy hoppin'! (Only 10 days until Christmas! Are you ready?!)
