Its really something quite different for me, I think. Sure it has the usual mixed media, but I don't ordinarily work with such soft, feminine colours. They seemed to suit the black and white photo though. Plus I felt that if I used my usual palette of bright, bold colours it might seem as though I was yelling at myself. I know. Weird huh?! Perhaps even with ourselves we should be gentle? Now I'm rambling!
Anyways if this word strikes a chord with you then do the challenge LOL! You can find all the details HERE. Thanks for the prompt girls. I'm looking forward to the next Word Up! :)
