Mixed Media Monda - Spring Colours



The wonderful Barbara is issuing her first challenge to us this week on Mixed Media Monday.
She has chosen "spring colours" as her theme - what fun. This is a water colour painting I did - hand drawn except for the background which is a rubber stamp coloured with water colours. The first photo shows it in the frame, and the second scan is to show the painting better, as it's hard to photograph things in the frame with glass. Thanks, Barbara - I enjoyed working with a "springy" theme, although we're enjoying a beautiful autumn here is Aus.
