Hello, Mr. Blue Jay

It is time for another CAS Colours & Sketches challenge. Check out the latest challenge:

And here is my take:

Hello Mr Bluejay | by karen h @ carefree creations

When I first saw that blue, I thought Blue Jay! I think I miss those annoying birds! I grew up in Virginia and we always had those noisy pests…but now I’ve been in Colorado for awhile and I have not seen (or heard) them. I’ll have to pay more attention when I visit home next time.

Once I decided on Blue Jay, the green was a no brainer (leaves). I wasn’t sure how I’d incorporate the yellow, but I thought I might sponge it in the background. When it came time to actually do that, I didn’t like the idea. Instead I pulled out some old pattern paper and added a little border – which can also function as the tree trunk.

I love how the sentiment snugs right into the branches.

I hope you join us at CAS Colours & Sketches!

Thanks for stopping by!

  1. I love your use of the challenge colors here! And I’m pretty sure I have some of that same patterned paper… in several other colors too… LOL.
