it's all about blue

Dear friends;
my art journal pages today was inspired by my previous robin-egg blue post. One photo in particular, that cute postcard pouch ... really talking to me :).


So I decided to create a rather romantic looking pages. Tried to limit to a few blue shades and a light yellow colors. Save the pink roses, I must have them :). I used soft pastel sticks, wax crayons and aqua acrylic paint for the background and circles.

 


A collage of decoupaged tissue paper hearts & roses, paper doily postage stamp and typewriter number rub-ons. And a random rambling on the color blue :). Added number leather thickers for dimension.


This was a quick page since I did minimum painting & drying. I should try play with mediums next. Enjoy the rest of Monday!. 
Hugs.
