Creative Tuesday's Purple. . .

I'm in a purple haze.... this didn't turn out quite like I wanted.  I wanted my lanterns to be purple too but as you can see....they are anything but...must have zoned out at the crucial moment... my little lady is however purple from head to toe.... and obviously keeping all her lanterns in the air...I'm sure with a little magic and concentration those lanterns will turn purple... Pop over to Mr Toast's and see what purple magic is going on over there.....

Actually, I think the lanterns look terrific being different in colour then the rest of the piece, makes them stand out...or her stand out, depends on how you look at it. I'm a purple fan so I like her head to toe purple ensemble!

I love the theatricalness of your illustration (hard to spell!) I love chinese lanterns and wish i could have that many :)

Heather said...

She is great! I kinda like that you did not make the latern purple. It made a different focal point. Beautiful!
