Tuesday Alchemy Challenge #19: Lime, Orange & Plum

Since it's summertime, we decided to do a color scheme that is perfectly suited for the season at Tuesday Alchemy. Lime, orange & plum are bright & juicy, so it was a lot of fun to come up with this creation.


What colors do you like to use for summer? I'd love for you to share your favorites with me :)


This creation started out as a plain wood frame. I painted, distressed, glittered & sealed it for a funky & vibrant piece that will brighten up any room.


I made the wood heart match this chalkboard & added a handcrafted chalkboard clothes pins to it. This way you can display a photo as well as write a note!

Wow you colored the chalkboard ink so smoothly--it wasn't easy to do from what I remember! Great idea for making it extra functional with the clothes pin.
