Blue challenge

Funny that Laura asked us to work with blue this week, as I had been in a meeting a few weeks ago and had to change biro's part way through :) and this is what I got.
You can see I took little information down in the meeting, you can see the word bilingualism at the top and I am fluent in welsh so was little for me to do before you think how rubbish I must be at work!
I then started playing with envelopes, the security ones you get with the windows from the bank and that, I am doing a workshop on the second of april for a local group and so envelopes are in my psyche at the moment. This was a bue roller ball pen over collaged strips.
This one has just a square of envelope paper
This one I took the idea from the zentangle bog and used a was of blue ink at the back and tried to be influenced by the shapes the ink made.
Lurved this challenge, as I do so love blue :)

Hi Carol. It's been ages since we were in touch. I love, love your blue work and I'm not really a blue person :)

I just love the collaged envelope pieces all tangled. Beautiful! I can't wait to give that a try. Fun, fun, fun. Carol, I also had to laugh at your note taking, it's the same way I take notes!

All of the are very nice and also interesting, especially the ones on the blue security envelope pieces. Tangling around ink washes is fun.
