I did it!

Challenge #7...I finally finished has been on my scrap table for nearly 10 days. Don't you just hate having something on the back burner,that you just can't seem to get to? Well I do, so I am really relieved to be able to tick this baby off my to-do list.
For those who never quite 'get' my take on sketches.....see I turned it upside down & inverted it but it is still the same sketch.

Once I had decided & cut the x2 different pieces of patterned paper, I found it a challenge to get the two halves of the L.O to 'marry' together, being such different colours. It took a bit of pushing around but I think I finally worked it out,by using colour balance. The colour & style of the embellishments on both sides 'match' pulling the whole thing together.
Funnily enough this is one of the few L.O's I have done that Tersh doesn't like...oh dear can't get it 100% right all the time.

Challenge #8 up a bit later.
