Shades of Blue and Green

Playing with my beeswax this week... when I finally got a chance in the studio. This piece is on 4 inch x 4 inch canvas board, acrylic painted background with tissue, napkin images and ephemera. Now available in my Etsy shop. 


I've been inspired by shades of blue and green this week, and created a treasury on Etsy by that name to highlight a friends lovely piece from her shop. It's the first item in the treasury. If you have time, take a look. 


Also take a look at what the other Paint Party Friday artists have created this week!
