It's all about colour

I was going to do this layout for the orange and green + one other colour dare but decided to go with the one I did. I got these yummy coloured pipe cleaners from Arthurs Emporium. Ever since I saw Kim Henkel using pipe cleaners on her layouts I wanted to try too. They are so bendy and cool to shape and come in nice bright colours.
Talking about colour I got the Autumn Leaves book Designing with Color the other day and they have a blog too. It's great as always. Alot like the other DW books, just even more Eye Candy and tips.
And have you seen there's more AL books coming out - Freestyle 2 and Designing with Details. I can't keep up.
In case you're wondering I'm getting used to my nails though one has broken off. I bit it and it cracked - naughty me. Quite liking them now actually. Nearly time for a back fill and a good file down. And thanks everyone for the tips.
If you decide to have a go at pipe cleaners on your layouts please link them back here in the comments so I can see.

Very styley Leanne. I guess the fact that you can think to use pipe cleaners and come up with a stunning layout is why you deserve the DT spots!
