Susan K.Weckesser has just launched her Create to Live Autumn 2015 Colour Challenge all of the details can be found here but in a nutshell look at the lovely picture below and think about the simple things you enjoy and then using the colours shown make some art. Simples really!
As soon as I saw the image the purples and orange made me think of sunsets. I LOVE sunsets! Then the dark purple and blue made me think of the sea. You got it! I LOVE being beside the sea. Putting those two thoughts I used one of Susan's stamps called Sail Away and made this ATC:
I know my colours aren't an exact match but this is my interpretation. The colours are there in a diluted way because I really wanted to make this using watercolours which I've not used before.
There is something quite dreamy about watching boats and wondering where they have been and where they are going. Are there any pirates aboard . . . you get my drift.
Susan's stamp can be found here and the words are from the ever useful Stampotique stamp called Tall Word Collage which can be found here
I do hope you are having a lovely day. Sam xxx
