Mixed Media Monday - 'Nature's blues and browns'


This week the theme brought to mind Mother Nature for me. I loved using the blue tones in her face and the leaves for hair. I've always loved putting browns and blues together as I think they go together so well and really compliment each other.

I also enjoy matching my pieces to quotes and have come across some great quotes on the net.


I had lots of fun with this one and managed to find some Autumn leaves in the garden to add to her hair.

Hi Nicola! Your Mother Nature looks lovely! The leaves you added are a perfect addition. Thanks so much for your sweet visit! I really enjoy creating in my art journal whenever possible. Have fun making yours! Happy Sunday!

Hugs,

The hair leaves are inspired, Nicola. Thank you so much for your encouragement on my blog. It's not often that I feel negative when I'm creating, so I was in unfamiliar territory. I just knew my kindred spirits out there would rescue me!

Hugs,
Alberta
