Turquoise




This is my entry for the Take A Word challenge this week where it is a color theme "Turquoise".  One of my favorite colors (that I use a lot), and a color that I love to pair up with contrasting colors. It sets every color off beautifully.  I wanted to create a watery world of fresh color and light, fantasy and a feeling of peace; all of the essences of the color turquoise. Imagery credits go to Artchix, Hollie and Beth at Deviant Scrap. Tangie Baxter, Lorie Davison (scrapbookgraphics) and PSE coloring and brushes.
