April TIF

The April colour palette for Sharon Boggan's TIF challenge has been posted and it definitely says Autumn.



I have made my block and you won't believe it but I haven't one single dark brown piece of fabric in my stash --not one---and seeing as I am only going to use what I have in my stash I don't have brown in this block.




Here is a photo of the Ornamental Grape that grows over our pergola and it is in full Autumn colour---what more could I want for inspiration than this.



Now to get on with the best part--the embellishing.

What a lovely muted pallet to work with ,Doreen. I think you're really disciplined to keep to your rule of only using your stash. I'm looking forward to seeing where this goes.
Fantastic colours in the grape!!

Looking good already Doreen.
These will look wonderful at the end of the year.
Any ideas yet how you are going to display them all together?

Doreen - I love your inspiration and I think you should pat yourself on the back, I mean what sort of person has plain old dark brown in their stash!! (stash just doesn't conjure up brown does it??) PS I am a stamper though and have to admit to a strong brown streak in my papers, inkpads and associated ephemera so let me know if they would help!!

I love the colours Doreen but debbi is right - It's lovely to see vibrant colours in your stash. However, also like debbi, I have strong browns and oranges in my inkpads which I use all the time. So maybe it's always handy to have a little bit of dark brown fabric tucked away under everything else so that it can be matched up with something vibrant!

Love the colours on this (I am now learning to appreciate brown too) and really look forward to seeing it embellished!
