Colour My World

Yesterday I hosted a workshop for making backgrounds. It was fabulous: we were awash in gorgeous colours! Martha, Susan and Jocelyn created a gallery of backgrounds that could stand alone as art in their own right. These artists really inspire me, and I am lucky to be able to call them my good friends too.

This was mine. I stamped my birdcage stamp in white acrylic and added the birds. Voilà!


  1. really nice. hope to get off my butt and make some backgrounds....heck make anything. summer is dragging on. I think next week I'll plan a few fun day trips. then maybe I can get some fun things going in my art.
    I also think I need a joint project, your class makes me think a group adventure in art could break me out of the summer time blues.

  2. this is gorgeous. So sunny!

    Lovely background colours and patterns...and I love the two happy chappies in the foreground have a way with your finishing touches!
    PS...put those cherries down and get painting!I might come into some money!

  4. Love it, Colette. The background is gorgeous and of course Mlle Magpie adores your birdcage.

  5. The pleasure was all ours, I assure you! Thank you as always for the inspiration and wonderful hospitality. xoxojc

  6. So beautiful! How are you, dear Colette? Seems ages since we had a chat. Hope all is well. Have missed you! xoxox
