You Color my world

Since today is a sucky day out and we are in the middle of a snow storm...I decided to do something I have never really done before.....I used tons of paint LOL I never new it could be so much fun..... I used the challenge over at Berry71blue 

You color my world
The challenge is to incorporate paint into your project.  You can use paint in many ways on your projects--to add texture to your backgrounds, to add random splatters of color, to color embellishments such as chipboard...let your creativity be your guide!

So here is what I came up with .....

yes I know it looks like an Easter egg....but I love it!I think I did just a bit of paint,stencil....lots and lots of texture there is ribbon under the Gesso for added texture I also used old torn book pages and an old instruction manual haha I think it was for a blender but I like the numbers on it...when I first started it was way to bright ...I wanted like spring pastels so I just kept working it until I liked what I saw!

 Love this flower and I was so happy it went well.....been dying to use it...the other two were handmade...
 since there were so many different colors I was able to mix and match the chippy pieces for the title :D

thank you so much for coming to take a peek....make sure you stop by Berry71Blue and enter their challenge this month!
