from yellow to rose



i wanted to create something really fun and different in my journal yesterday.
and as murphy's law would have it, no really fun and different ideas came into my head.
so, after staring at a blank page for about ten minutes (and taking a little chocolate break),  i ended up just swiping some bands of watercolor across the page, thinking that maybe if i made some sort of mark......any sort of mark.....an idea might appear.
but after going from yellow to rose, i still didn't quite know what to do with it.
so when all else fails, it's time to get out the microns and just write in the names of the colors.
 i don't know if it's really that different......but it's colorful, in a fun sort of way.
mission (somewhat) accomplished.....now it's time to get back to that chocolate.  :))

Beautiful! I adore color, and these are so gorgeous. I can't say enough about your creative printing. I want to write just like that when I grow up. I've stared at a blank page for the past two days. Next time that happens, I'll just start adding color and see where it leads me. Thanks for the inspiration! ♥

HI, Lori,
I love this and I particularly like how the writing is different on each color. Your lettering is so playful! Mine is so controlled, sigh, playful is more fun!!!
