Summer of Color - Week 1

Summer of Color 2015 is up and running
and the colour prompt for the first week is

blue - blue - green.

Our choice of 2 blues, our choice of green.

I was inspired by a piece of 
fishy Decopatch-type paper I found
lurking in a stash drawer,
and so my colour choices are;

Indigo - Coeruleum Hue - Leaf Green

I painted a swimmer lady 
(with funky flowery swimming hat)
and lots of bubbles.  
You know I like to do bubbles :)
Finally, I added found text.

I was working in my little Moleskine book
and I found it quite difficult, 
having been working
in my much larger art journal 
for Documented Life Project.

"You're more than just a number."

I thought you might be working in that moleskin again, yum! I will have to try that myself. Quite a size difference in page real estate. Still groovin on your style, Jo!

I love the sentiment, and wow, you are officially the queen of bubbles, those are amazing. And the swimming cap and goggles - pefect! Plus you successfully tackled teeth, they always intimidate me.
