Blues and greens

Hi Everybody!

Today is the start of a new challenge at Try it on Tuesday and our theme is clocks/ watches. As always, the challenge will run for 2 weeks, and projects of all formats are allowed. Hope to see you there!
I am also linking to Summer of Colour, where the colours this week are blue, blue and green. Thanks to Kristin for hosting this fun event.

I used water colour paper in A4, and painted it diagonally with metallic paints in 2 shades of blue and green, On the clock is a nasty fly - as we all know, time flies! The wings and body of the fly have been sparkled with  diamond Stickles.





For art journal journey, masculine and feminine, I painted a tree woman, perhaps Mother Nature, once again using greens and blues. This is perhaps the female version of a 'green man'.  I am also linking to Moo Mania and More, anything goes.







And some greens and blues from my walk today:








Have a great day you all, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!

  9. You obviously had a "green" day yesterday, inspired I'm sure by the beautiful countryside you walk every day. Your tree lady has a beautiful face. We still have very mixed weather here. Summer hasn't quite arrived yet! Enjoy your day. Xx

  20. And how time does fly. I can hardly believe SOC is starting again. Nice choice for the clock them and for your blues and green.

    I might head over to Try It Tuesday to add something to the clock images, too.

  29. I like your tree woman. She goes perfectly with the sentiment.
    The diagonal background is gorgeous and the iridescent colours on the bee are brilliant in the first page.
    You are an inspiration to me, Valerie. I am actually doing some painting today.
    Hugs & smiles,
