Summer of Colour 1 - Citron Green & Turquoise

Ah the Girls of Summer…
There’s Ruth, Martha (the mean looking one, don’t think I want to mess with her) and Gaby on a road trip…
…staying at their favorite Motel LOL. I am sure if the picture was in colour one of them would surely be wearing  Citron Green & Turquoise don’t you think!  
And no, none of these fine ladies are relatives - just using up my very large collection of black and white photos I have thrifted. Watercolor, ink and stamping for the background. My first Summer of Colour piece…Enjoy. Jewels

p.s. special message to Jo - okay telling me I have to figure out how to "make" citron green was absolutely no help girlfriend - I stressed out for several days trying to get it right (is that how it is to be for 6 weeks) then found an ink pad that was good enough LOL

  3. Your girls of summer are awesome for SOC. Nice job. I notice you family pet members on the sidebar, me too. I have mine now gone on the sidebar and my current family pet members. It's amazing how much we love your doggies. Nice job again.

  11. Love love love that photo, what a precious find, Jewels! You've told a wonderful story with this little postcard :)

    Re paint mixing - I recall saying that you would waste a lot of time and paint mixing them to get the required colours - I never said you'd achieve your aim, haha! That ink pad saved the day :)

  13. Good old polyester pantsuits. My mom ran around in those for a decade or two before I convinced her to move on, fashion-wise.
    Great pic and cool postcard(?). Glad to see you're doing the SOC too.
