Summer of Color - Week 4

The colour prompt this week at
is
charcoal grey and pink.

I was seriously lacking in inspiration
and then caught sight of my water jar.  
My disgustingly dirty water jar.
My GREY and PINK(ish) water jar 
:)


I really should change that water more often.


The Moleskine pages are lined with
vintage papers, lightly brushed over 
with gesso.


The pot is painted with acrylic paint.
*
I won't be around for a few days,  
because family Urbani are going 
on holiday tomorrow for a week in 
sunny Vilamoura, in Portugal.

Bye for now!

I wish I was on holiday at that beach... maybe if I promise to change your paint water for you you will let me come along as well... love this take on the colour prompt even if I am madly jealous of the holiday at the beach...xx

The picture is spot on to the photo. Love it. Am insanely jealous of you Jo :) Not of your holiday destination though. Looks HOT!

Have I mentioned before how I love the raggedy edges of your book? I do.
