|Daydream Medallions and Feel Goods|
Which do you like best?
|Daydream Medallions done from dark to light from outer edge|
The first card I thought I'd coordinate the outer edge of the medallion with the Hello Honey colors in the frame layer and sentiment (from the Feel Goods set). I used Hello Honey, So Saffron, and Daffodil Delight for an ombre effect. I was going for a "sun" image, but I thought it was a little too dark, and separated the medallion from the sentiment too much. Not terrible, but not quite what I was going for.

The second card I used the Daffodil Delight on the outer layer, using Daffodil then So Saffron, Daffodil again, and only using Hello Honey on the innermost ring. I think it coordinates the card a little better. I also like that I could bring it all the way out to the sentiment, giving a little more of a sun shape to the image, and that it links to the sentiment and makes the card feel more balanced overall.
And this concludes today's presentation... Sorry, I also use these posts as notes to myself to remind me what was going on with these cards, I have a terrible memory!!
Anyhow, perhaps a followup post on the stepped up version of this. A little bling would add some sparkle to the sunshine theme. But that will most definitely be on another day, projects abound!!
