Mixed Media Monday "Purples and Blues"


The theme at MMM is Purples and Blues. The example by Rosie is just stunnings. Blues and purples always seem to evoke a kind of mystical feel. I decided to stick with Blues rather than purples, mainly because I have no decent purple colour at the moment. I've given my contribution the title "Feeling Blue"

This is one of my favourite images. She looks so lovely and very contemplative. "Feeling Blue" just seems to suit this piece so well.

What a beautiful picture - very soft and other-worldly. You may have left out the purples but you didn't include pink!! That is what I did when I confused one challenge with another.

Just got a whole lot of new stamps from a brilliant place called the Stamp Smith. This is the image that I first saw on Docraft and really liked. I asked the friend who has used it in an ATC, where she got it. Well she borrowed it from a friend who got it from ebay as a one off. But.... it had a title. I googled the title, and hey presto found the site. They have great stamps and offer a really friendly fast service. I highly recommend them!
