Blue is my world: Daisy Yellow's prompt #15: Blues



blue is my world, originally uploaded by Sophie_vf.
In response to Tammy's no-frill's Friday prompt #15, Blues.

Yes, the cold and snow is getting me a little down. It isn't actually colder than it was in December or January, but somehow with the longer daylength, and knowing that it's March, it feels colder, and I resent it more. I'm tired of shoveling snow, and tired of my face hurting with cold every time I go out with the dogs. I could go on and on, but I think the image says it all.

This was originally meant to be a photo transfer page like the one I did a year or so ago,  but for some reason (maybe different photo paper?) the images refused to adhere to the journal page. So I settled for gluing the photos on face up, and adding background colour with watercolour. Because the decoupage glue had already dried on the page, it made the background shiny and I couldn't write on it with my white gel pen, so I used scraps of watercoloured paper for the words. 

I'd forgotten how much fun this was - glad to be getting some colour onto the page again.

Thanks for playing along with the prompt! I don't think I've ever done a successful photo transfer. Ever. Glad you made lemonade from your lemony transfer. At least you are heading out of winter instead of into winter, eh?
