Just a moment…

Taking just a moment to appreciate these pretty purple shots from last weekend – I love the dark background against the purple, in the first 3 shots of this series.
Eeee I am far too excited to share my weekend away at Blogcademy and exploring Auckland! Remember you can follow my instagram for updates – @cloudsofcolour Have you been to Auckland and have any favourite spots? I’m dying to explore! So far I’ve been to The Fed which is a New York styled diner. I had a delicious pumpkin salad and bottomless coffee. The waitresses dresses were the cutest retro style in mint green! So many hidden treasures in this stunning city.
Leave me a comment if you have somewhere I must visit! Food places? Hidden boutiques? Art and craft stores? Architectural wonders?
Have a happy weekend friends!

Purple Mondo

This plant is called a mondo grass and is native to Japan, Vietnam, India & China. I was really inspired by the way these purple flowers were captured on my camera – in and out of focus purple washes perfect for a new watercolour painting sometime.
Soon I’ll be sharing with you my art process which I’m really excited about. I hadn’t realised it was of interest until I expressed it to mum – so keep an eye out this week!
Hope you’re all having a perfect week – I’m almost packed and definitely ready for my holiday in Japan!

Art Journal: Purple Flower Doily

Ooooooh I LOVE how today’s art journal turned out! I used a purple ink pen to outline the hand drawn part of the flowers then soon after I applied water colour paint. It blurred it in a way I haven’t experienced before. I need to think of something beautiful to make with all these art journal pages… at the moment they are floating around my desk! Have you got any ideas?xobec
