My Favorite Colour Challenge

Hi All, Now I love all sorts of colours depending on my mood it can vary. So this week the challenge from JFF is to use your favorite colour as the main point of your piece. I have a great love of Lilacs, purples, pinks, heathers, you see where I am headed with my colour :-) So of course my choice is a heather shade of paint for my canvas and then I gave it a sparkle glaze, stamped a swirl. Made my flowers, leaves and butterflies out of wallpaper scraps (it was the perfect colour match) and varnished with clear nail varnish.  (I did explain this recycle technique on a previous post) this is going to be given to my SIL Brenda as she introduced me to recycling wallpaper scraps. Its pretty but not cute (I hope). Love the JFFhttp://jffchallenge.blogspot.com/ DT pieces in their favorite colours.

What a clever idea. I tried to use wallpaper scraps as background paper years ago and it looked just like wallpaper , lol. I would never have guessed with your flowers, adds nice texture to the leaves too.

Really love your canvas Sandra. You know, if you didn't say this was wall paper, we would never know. I have a couple of crafty friends in the UK who chip in and buy rolls of wall paper when they are on sale. They then cut through the whole roll. So they each have a mini roll each. If that makes sense.
