Cape Breton Colour Week // blue

capebretoncolourweek-blue01 This is a card my friend Julie in Ontario sent me. I love it, it feels so springlike.


So yesterday was the final day of my Cape Breton Colour Week, and I was looking for blue.

Then once I got to school I went for a little walk. Shadows on snow are blue, right?

We’re doing a silent art auction at school to raise money so we can attend the Creative Conference next month in Sydney.

I’m putting together a fun collage of all the pictures and I’ll have that on the blog on Monday, along with my thoughts on doing the Colour Week and what it taught me.

The other colours are here: red, orange, yellow and green.

For now I’m off to the market to get me some crepe-y goodness! Have a great weekend, everyone!

    I have enjoyed seeing your week of color! I may do something like that this summer… (too busy to blog lately or rather it has taken a very low priority while I finish up the school year). But your colorful explorations made me think of the joy it is to get out and really SEE what is around me… thanks for the spark Leah!

    It’s been fun to play along! Perhaps we’ll meet in person at the conference! I’ll be there for the first day. šŸ™‚
