 Challenge : - Green with Envy (make green the main colour)
Green is the color of hope , we say in Denmark, and of springtime, and beautiful nature, when on it`s fullest in summertime . Even in winter we bring inside the beautiful green Christmas tree .
So this CHALLENGE over at :  ,is filled with possibilities for you to take part .

My example , is a very simple creation, using one of the White Greyboards  panels , smeared over with Green, mixed with a little Yellow ,---- the lace was adhered after dry, and also painted with the mixed green/yellow  . when dry I used the Light Texture paste over the Feather stencil, - using white mixed with a little chestnut  brown  .                             

Also a little amount of the wonderful Texture Sand paste was smeared onto the panel on top of the feather , and left to solid dry.
On a piece of craftpaper I stamped half the Affirmation from Lynne`s set 4 ,cut it out and adhered it to the top panel ,using a green fineliner , to line out the perimeter.
Chestnut Brown paint was diluted with water, and with my finger smeared over the feather , and the perimeter of the tag. Also to the lace , was added a little, to give shadows of interest.
The texture paste was over painted with the beautiful Pearl paint, and a piece of nature bark was adhered to right side panel .    

Now , if this gave you a desire, to create your own Green challenge piece, and maybe win this  Voucher– all you have to do is hope over here : to read the rules, and create your own art piece .

Thank you for visiting me, it always brings big pleasure to me.

Yet again another adventure of nature Dorthe, I love how the paste looks when used through the stencil. A very tender hearted way to approach the colour green, where would we be without it??

Oh, that is lovely - such a gentle, soft shade of green, perfect to complement the feather which looks just wonderful. Beautiful textures and connections to the natural world as always, Dorthe.

Quiet Strength takes courage....what a perfect theme! The silver feather is a lovely focal and your greens and browns look just right with it. The whole piece has an "Older" feeling which really plays well with your theme.
