Making Lemonade Out Of Lemons (Limes)

Mary at Green Paper has decided to make her challenges a monthly event.  The first week of each month, she will provide beautiful images from her collection and challenge us to create something new using those images.

I eagerly printed September's images onto fabric a week ago.  Pulled Mary's wonderful images of actress/singer Lillian Russell out of my printer tray, only to realize that my ink cartridges needed changing and everything was green.

Disgusted and hating myself for being so wasteful, I put the fabric sheet aside and pretty much forgot about it until this morning.

I was planning to make the journal in sepia tones, but now it is green and purple.
A glass of limeade anyone?


enJOY,
Kimberly

I love the expression making lemonade out of lemons - and you certainly have here! Lillian is wonderful - she is sumptuous with all that fabric and trims. And you've picked out the green tint perfectly with those little flowers and leaves.

Are you *sure* you didn't do that on purpose? Looks fab!

This is so pretty. Sometimes our oops is the best part.

This is beautiful and I am so glad you used your limeade to create this collage. Just think what you can do on purpose in the future. :o) Happy creating...
