The Summer Of Color- Sweet Friends In Blue





I made this little blue piece for the Summer Of Color challenge. Sharon at Wildflowerhouse inspired my hue of blue :) with her beautiful delphinium painting. I had a bottle of Tattered Angels delphinium mist and used it on my dictionary page and the vintage crepe paper. Yum! I used an old vintage photo that I have had forever and I'm sorry but I don't have any idea where I got it. Lot's of favorite stash around here. But I have been saving it for a special project and when I found the little enamel bird I knew that this was the project. Thanks Kristin...looking forward to next week! :) Nan

Nan. Really amazing! I love all the elegant and feminine details here - the bird in the photo, sweet friends and then a charm of the same bird below. The frame, the trim, the detail - just so beautiful. What an inspiration, xoxo
