Some of my favorite colors…….

Yum-yum colors…..Quinacridone Nickel Azo Gold, Quinacridone Red and Cobalt Teal…..amazing together, I think.  Black and white washi tapes kicks the colors up a notch!

These are journal pages I just finished and they feel a lot like spring to me, I’m ready for some color!

The page is centered by a piece of hand made paper, a scrap of vintage script, turquoise velvet, tea-dyed cheesecloth, a rice paper heart…..all topped by a butterfly cut out of canvas and painted with acrylics.

The facing page is scattered with hearts and the same fun color scheme.

Topped off with a tag and more luscious color!  I’m likin’ these happy colors and the hint of Valentine’s day in my journal.

So much color, and you're right, it does look very spring-like. I thought the butterfly was real at first, wonderful art!

I apologize for getting here late, but it was 65 F today, so I went outside to play. I even took a walk in the park, something I just NEVER do. Then I found out Julia posted her WOYWW early when I saw your sidebar. Go figure.

I did want to compliment you on these pages in your journal. I am, as always, impressed!
