Colour your home for AJJ

Today the -- 'Colours in my World ' -- are green and orange.

I painted the base of my journal page with shades of green,  before adding pieces of the napkin. and some stencils.
 The napkin had lovely paler shades as you can see, but after sticking it  to the page,
 the colour changed  looking  much brighter, taking up the greens that I had used underneath.
 Note to self,  wet glues and water colour paints blend very easily with each other on tissue type papers.
This made me look around my home to see the colours , that because I see them every day, they get taken for granted.  Colours are not  always  what matter most, it the love and laughter shared with family and friends
 that colour my home.

Thank you for visiting with me today,
you are always welcome here.

  7. What a beautiful page Yvonne! I love the summery feel of this one. All the foliage, flowers and butterflies... like a vision of garden beauty! Such a lovely quote you used too. You sure have an amazing collection of napkins. I had a wee peek last time I was at the store, and the selection here looks more like a party for a 5 year old than a secret garden!! lol. sending hugs :)

  8. I really like this amazing page that you created!!! Great colors combination. Very very nice artwork:)

  9. I seldom look at the colors of my home, either, but this is a genuine beauty. I was glad you left that note, because I wouldn't have considered how the green took on the napkin and turned it a beautiful green color. I really like these colors today. They are truly different and are what I would consider a cross between summer and autumn.

  10. Beautiful colours and a beautiful page, and another gorgeous napkin, the rose is really so pretty.
