Blue

The first week's colour over at Summer of Colour was blue. I know I a bit late getting this finished and posted but it has been a very hectic week. Anyway here is a photo of my blue piggybank, brought all the way home from Amsterdam.


I have had this trinket box waiting to be decorated for quite some time, and as the room it is in is blue, I thought that it was time I decorated it.


So I did.


I painted it using various different colours of blue paint, then  added some beads for decoration. I am quite pleased with the effect, although I think I should have painted it first with some kind of primer or something as the brown colour showed through quite a lot at first.

Next week the colour is Green.
