Green


The colour for this week's  Summer of Colour was Green, so I thought I would make a start to an art journal. I painted the background using a couple of different colours of green, then some green shimmer mist. The base of the tree is grungeboard painted, I added buttons for the leaves of the tree and then randomly stamped some leaf images, and added a couple of butterfly lady stickers.

Now of to think about next week's colour - Pink.

I love using buttons in art, they add so much texture and interest. All the greens in the background are lovely.
