Created Byhand Challenge - Pastel Colours



Recently I have been drawn to pastels. I don't violently dislike any colours but have just preferred to use earthy shades or jewel tones. I have a friend who hates yellow so much that if moves to a new house and it has any yellow flowers in the gardens (including roses), she will pull them up and give them away! These garden-themed pieces were created for a round robin journal swap. The images are copies of favourite vintage photos from my collection. This is my entry for this week's Created Byhand Challenge.
