Hues of blue at Dezinaworld

Hi Everyone

I want to share my entry to this weeks spot Prize at Dezinaworld where the theme is 'Hues of Blue'. I have been making some quite distressed and 'vintagey' things lately and wanted to have a play with my other love which is shabby chic.

This certainly has a number of blues in it and used the pink flower both to give a bit of contrast but also to lift the blues a bit and to fit in with the flowers on the image.I am not sure about the bitterfly on this one?

The frame is a nestabilities pendant, the sentiment is my own and the small vintage elements have been downloaded, except the stamped and white embossed flower. I have made 2 of them as they are for my tins that will become presents at a later date.

If you haven't been over to see June at Junibear's Jottings, I do recommend  you take a look. She is an amazing digital collage artist and is going to be giving a most fabulous giveaway when she gets to 100 followers. If you haven't seen her work, you don't know what you are missing.

Enjoy your Wednesday and thanks for coming and taking a look.

luv and hugs {brenda} xoxox

Hi Brenda.
Such a beautiful image and the blues work so well, especially as you added the contrasting flower, it certainly makes the blues 'pop'.

I love shabby chic too.

Beautiful creations- they will be fab presents.
