Colour me positive

respond to every call that excites your spirit (rumi)// tell us what excites your spirit is our latest challenge and I've used the words from a pendant that a very dear friend gave me years ago 
"Live. Love. Laugh" there is a common L and the O is a small diamond 

This was another pre prepared background using pine needles, cracked pistachio, evergreen bough, iced spruce.

I love these colours that remind me of the ocean hence the pictures from my stash of shells & sea, as well as adding flowers and a puppy....who can resist a puppy! I've used some stickers that I coloured & stamped ages ago....they are no longer very sticky so I shall have to seal them down when I get home.

And then I was full of good intentions for....
Art Prompts galore 
Beige and Peach (orange). SCAVENGER:PURPLE,STARS,STAMP PAINT WITH RANDOM HOUSEHOLD OBJECT,3 IMAGES CUT FROM BOOKS OR MAGAZINES,GAME PIECE,HANDS,BLING, FLOWER. ,SOMETHING CUT FROM JUNK MAIL,RANDOM LETTERS, RANSOM NOTE STYLE (spell out something and even Journal 52.... Yeah! Well that didn't happen! Yesterday I was distracted by wonderful weather & today we went down the valley to a yarns & silks fair....wonderful knitwear/ woven clothing/ died yarns  as well as "artisans without stores" that did gorgeous jewellery, handbags, leather slippers, felted ones too....I behaved & only got a small shawl's worth of yarn/pattern included. 

Which means that I can only share the latest inchie which this week is a whale....

A very happy looking Moby Dick!....
