Fun & Simple

I found my self sitting and coloring images a little while ago with no plans to use them. I just plain picked marker colors without a care for being able to match them to papers I have!!!
---
Sometimes, ok most times for me, my favorite cards are the ones I don't plan out. I start with one thing, say the color image, and look for ways to use them later.
---
There is much talk about notebooks or journals where many people jot down thoughts and ideas. I have come to terms with my mind not being able to work that way. :)
---
I tend to wing it! Sometimes for good and sometimes not so good. And I'm ok with that!

This is just another way I used the same colored image and focused on a different color scheme. I like the first one much more but I thought the purple inked background stamp on the teal paper was kinda fun!

Here's to finding what is fun for you!

I love what you did with that stamp! It's one of my all time favorite images... and how you did the jars. It looks great! I recently purchased the background you used in the first card and now because of your card, I can't wait for it to arrive!

I like them both, but I do prefer the first one too. I love the background and the ribbon. I'm a "wing it" kind of gal too!

So beatiful! Love your coloring and color choices. I'm like you in that sence. I often color images that I love because I find it relaxing and enjoyable. I keep the images in a little container. Then I go and try to match the image to the paper. I actualy took a big leap last night and picked my paper before coloring *gasp* .
