Theme Thursday - Favourite Colours

It is so difficult for me to actually narrow down colours that are my favourites. I find that I like certain ones to wear and others to adorn my home. When I use colours in art, I want to convey a mood and am very interested in trying new combinations to see where they lead. Sometimes I just plunder my scrap box and choose a piece of scrapbook paper with a colour palette that fascinates me and I use it in a piece. The house above uses shades of blue, taupe and beige and I really love the feel that the colours create in it....soothing and uplifting. This is my entry for this week's Theme Thursday challenge.

Blue is such a peaceful colour yet it can be combined with so many other things to alter the mood it conveys. i love this piece Heather - the colour combo is beautiful
