ISO purple

Post by joannie »

I'm needing to find some purple (deep purple not violet) pattern paper and embellishments to use for prom and homecoming queen photos.
Image
I don't use purple hardly ever on my pages. & I can see why...NO ONE MAKES COLLECTIONS WITH PURPLE!  😣
I've almost decided to go for this gray and black collection and then sprinkle purple in my clusters. So I don't need a lot of purple.
Image
If anyone knows of a current or past collection could you let me know? I have looked in my stash but I may have overlooked it.  thanx!!

I'm almost thinking there was a KaiserCraft collection that had deep purple??? I know how difficult that is to find. 

Another one that comes to mind is Bo Bunny. Peacock something? But is that a different shade of purple? 

I too can look in my stash and see what I can come up with. But I think you're right. You might have to use the deep purple for embellies

Maybe do some mixed media and make your own?  :)

This is space themed, but if you have a lot of photos most of it would be covered anyway or you could use it in sections. Image

Mintay's Nightfall is gorgeous!  I have the 6 x6 and 12 x 12.  Kaisercraft has had several collections with purples.  One of them was a Christmas collection, Christmas Jewels?  Another was Christmas Wishes.   My favorite is the Mintay, though.  I has beautiful lantern and table setting images.

About a month ago I did a search for just that Purple patterned paper. If you go under search you can select filters: paper, purple, size, etc and I ended up with about 20 sheets. I scrolled through some of the collections that might have B sided purple, too. Oh, and the 20 sheets are what I bought, they had far more! We have a great search engine (thanks Brandon).

I love the black and white with sprinkles of purple idea! That deep kind of purple is hard to find - most purples we have are lighter it seems: https://www.acherryontop.com/shop/color/8585408


Here are a few things I found:

I think I do remember that collection and I used it about it 7 years ago on my DD's homecoming princess layout. It had more lavender and violet in it but I will look thru my stash to see if I saved any scraps! Thanks


update
I found the layout!

I also have trouble finding LSU purple.  Maybe stamp your own embellishments using Cat Pooler or Tim Holtz purples?  I have a Catherine Pooler ink specifically for that.  I'll have to go see what the name is. 

Color Study has some purple papers but not that dark.  Maybe use purple cardstock and die cut some flowers?
