Somewhere.....



over the rainbow is Fatma's choice of theme for SPA this week. What a great theme I thought.... thinking of the ability to use Dorothy from the wizard of oz... however I also wanted to incorporate rainbow colours. I used the new 'brights' alcohol inks from ranger and splodged inks on and used a straw to blow them about to produce the background.
I made 2 similar, the other is on my flickr.
