Black and White


My one dread! The absence of colour in my work. Anne has chosen and done the sample for this weeks SPA ... she has made a fabulous fabric work of art.... however... here is mine... I always feel there is something missing doing things black and white, or that somehow it is unfinished.

I know exactly what you mean. It's all I can do not to put a big splash of red on a black and white piece!! This piece is charming, Mandy. Good work!

Love your card!

This is great! (I feel the same way about lack of color.) And I like the words. I've never heard that before. I especially like number 7.

I love your image and your nursery rhyme (?) border. Very creative.
(It is hard not to throw a splash of color on these b&w projects:)

Oh, Mandy! I know JUST how you feel about B&W! When Somerset Mag did the B&W issue, I looked thru it once - I couldn't stand all of the color being sucked out of the issue.

Must say though . . . your little clown is absolutely perfect and adorable. It's Wonderful!
