I created this for SOC.  When I saw this weeks challenge last night, I admit, I really really didnt like the color choice.  I thought about it all night and most of today.  Then finally got out some watercolors and just started painting with the royal blue washes, then tossed in some flourishes of red and splatters of both.

It seemed too dull, even after I added the pop of blue here and there.  Sooooo... I grabbed my homemade stamps and stamped some dark royal blue all over the page.  That helped ... still needed a little something.. I cut the page up into pieces, and there .. look a tag was born!

I added the face, received in happy mail, painted in the light blue, and the word Believe.  The blue sharpie I used for the word, was off color after applying so i went over it with the lighter blue...  Not happy with it, but shrugs.

The colors for the pale blue seem to be washed out, too bad they are actually very pretty.  I guess I need to build a proper light box, but its so much more fun, running around trying to set the camera up, get close enough and take 30 pics to get on good one!

With the other pieces:

I can add a small pocket to it:


  1. Love that you added the face. So pretty.

  2. This is really gorgeous. I'm like you, needing to build a light box, so had to laugh when I silently agreed about taking 30 photos to get one good one. Still, your art is simply stunning.

  3. lovely, I really like this!

  4. Very nice! I think the face is just right for this piece and I can relate to not always getting the truest colours in my photos.

  5. You created such amazing works of art using this week's SOC colors! I love them!!!!
