White with one June challenge - Opera Mauve


Playing with paint
my DH was replacing the soffits on our house
and I took some of the old ones that he was throwing away
to use as stencils
I think they worked great
This was certainly a challenge to use just white and opera mauve
I mixed the color by combining Cheap Joe's Janet's violet rose
with Holbein lavendar
I love how the watercolor moved and left areas
where the colors merged and then diverged
I also painted the wooden die cut and the Prima flower.
the photo is a favorite of mine that I have used before
added a candy wrapper, novelty yarn, leaves, and a metal title
Now off to link to http://whitewith1.blogspot.ca/
