Magenta and Teal for Kat
. . . and a bit of silver . . . and gold . . . and butterfly colors . . .
I so enjoyed working in these happy colors that were chosen by Kat.
Although, as usual, I ended up sneaking in a few extra hues here and there.
The fabric I used for the flags and flower pots does gradate from magenta to red.
But, looking back, I think I've basically stuck to magenta and teal.
I loved the quote on the right side of the first page:
“Two lasting bequests we can give our children:
one is roots, the other is wings.”
~ Hodding Carter
So my theme became Roots and Wings.
I've known Kat loves angels, since the time she so generously purchased
one of my angel paintings during a charity auction years ago.
Angels are fun to paint, both realistically and whimsically.
After doing a few in Kat's journal, I'm thinking of
painting some Christmas angels later on.
Believe in angels, as they believe in you.
The reverse sides of the tags say
Some whimsical trees.
I know Kat loves trees, but I've just discovered she has a secret wish
to own a small propeller plane...magenta-pink with turquoise polka dots of course!
(another fine example of Wings!)
I'm so wishing I could have included a painting of Kat doing
acrobatics in the sky in her whimsical plane,
but I've already sent her journal on to Priti Lisa!
Ah well, I'll keep this in mind for another time!
Two more journals to go in this Magical Journal Journey.
hmmm...one is white, the other is turquoise.
I think both will be fabulously fun!
Don't forget, one more day to join in on the
at Inspiration Avenue!
Deadline to join is September 5.
You will have til September 21 to complete your postcards!
