13 Days of Creepmas with Rick St. Dennis - Day 12

Frequently I get in a rut about color combinations - love that yellow through orange and red to purple, especially if they're just a little dirty. But even I get tired of it once in a while. My solution is a pretty standard one - go looking for color combos in fabric or magazines, wherever. I did that for Sad Frosty's scarf yesterday and got hold of one I didn't want to let go of. First the project and then I'll show you my inspiration.

This is Rick St. Dennis' This is as Jolly as I Get . I put him on a page from a thesaurus after looking up grumble or grumpy or some such word. I used the Inverse Image on the word page to get a nice contrast for him. I do think he is just as cute as can be dressed up in elf's gear!! Then I discovered a scrapbook paper from a K & Company Christmas pack that matched him so that was that. The color inspiration came from an online search for "colorful winter scarf".


I actually used some of the patterns in Frosty's scarf yesterday but today I just used the colors. Aren't they pretty and so far from my usual.  This is Day 12 - just one to go, so really enjoy yourself on the hop today and tomorrow before we all caught up in Christmas! There's the bloglist ----------> Have fun!!
