Happy colors..

Hello my sweet friends..
I have been playing in my Art Journal once again..
This page I made for this weeks challenge over at
City Crafters Challenge Blog.




It's my week to Host once again and my challenge this week
is a color challenge.  Bright greens and yellows..
Happy colors don't ya think.




I have to say I had so much fun creating this page.




First, I drew out the the flowers and stems and then I used my water color
crayons to color this up so pretty.  I made my own rub-on here to add the quote.
As you can see I put one too may words in here and didn't notice till
I was all done.  Oh well. No crying over spilled milk.   :(




And then I pulled out my different sizes of sharpies to outline and
add some fun doodles.



So my crafty friends if you would like all the details on this
challenge you can hop on over to
City Crafters Challenge blog to get all the details.


So glad you stopped by my friends.

Hugs~

Hello my lovely Linda, I can just imagine you getting completely lost in your thoughts whilst creating this amazing work of art! it is so very creative. I have to confess that today I know what I've been missing when I visit your "Happy Place" it must be the first time I've stopped by with my volume on! Loving the tones lady!.x

Hi, Linda!

I was just a little shaken - someone was so rude and unreasonable - and I needed to snap out of it and just happened to click here.... and almost went away again because none of the blogs would pop up - I was starting to seriously feel like a grump.... but, then... I heard the music....softly.... where in the world is that coming from.... Oh! The blogs were popping up on another hidden window that my husband had opened! Silliness! and, between the cheery music and the bright yellow and that therapeutic doodle - I'm in a happy place, again!!! =] Thanks so much!!!

xxoo

It is early in the morning, and I am taking my exercise, wandering about my favorite blogs. What an incredible up lift to begin my day, and the colors and patterns spark my happiest thoughts, as I am celebrating my daughter's birthday.
