BLUE SKY

This is an ATC I did over the weekend for the Artchix group bi weekly lottery. The theme is enchantment. All I can think is that lately I have been enchanted by blue, just can't get enough of it! Since delving into mixed media I also have taken on an odd affection for pink. When I was in college I loved pink, and then at some point I began to hate it, and have not really used it for a looooooong time. But now I'm liking it again. You may laugh, but I think part of that influence comes from Esther! The first time I saw Esther's blog, there was a lot of pink floating around, and I was immediately enchanted with it....it looked magical! The little pink stars that float around when you move your curser on her French blog are adorable!! So I think that she has inadvertently helped me to appreciate pink. But back to blue, that's the obsession of late. Does anyone else ever have a complete reversal of color preference?

I'm starting to like flashier colors which I've never be attracted to before. I'm usually very "plain Jane" but I've found myself looking at fushia, purples, and even yellow. Maybe looking at how someone else uses the color in a creative way changes our perspective.

My colour preferences are fairly stable. But who knows what the future will bring? Love this ATC!

Sharon like the others I love the way you use blue. Actually any color is magic in your hands!! :)

Blue has always been one of my favorite colors. As for pink I haven't seen the light yet.Being blue eyed and blond wearing pink would have been the kiss of death in the professional world especially when your name ends in an ie. :) Even though it doesn't matter now I still think of pink not being much of a color. :)

Oh Sharon! I received your ATC in the mail yesterday. I'm working on inventory for a show this weekend, then I'll send one back. Thank you for the pink heart of hope.
