Wrapping paper. Michaels' had closed out their MS wrapping paper some months ago, and I bought it. Like, all of it. At $1 a roll, it was too cheap to pass up, and it was lovely heavy stuff. I knew I'd use it for something, if only to wrap presents. So I had rolls and rolls sitting in my closet, more than enough to line envelopes and whatever else I think of between now and then.
So that brought in a metallic pewter color, and eventually I had this bright idea which meant hours in Photoshop and mixing my own Gocco ink. (HARD.) Looks cool though, right?(Note: I just found this photo from my table last Thanksgiving, and although I did not realize it until just now, what colors do you see? See, it just keeps coming up.)
If it seems like I'm taking this all way too seriously, that's probably true. It was at about this point that I realized I was really into this wedding project. But why not? As long as it's fun, why not?
