Colour speaks all languages

Colour speaks all languages” said Joseph Addison, and I totally agree with him. Looking at an image, no need for words, the colours can tell you if it is warm and happy or if it is cold, distant and sad. Thinking about colouring pages the good thing about it that every and each one of us can create a different feeling choosing different colours to feel the gaps. Well just got another idea: what if we have a coloured page and we create on it an image like opposite to personalize? This is what I tried on this spread:

 So first I colorised my spread using bistre and Plane Jane simply sheers (peoney, soft peach and tangy lime).

On one side I added a female portrait and tangled/doodled around her.

On the other side I also stamped my quote next to my tangles.

I am sharing my spread with Journal 52 prompt: colouring book.

    What an amazing background, Ruth! The colors are definitely there, but only subtly invade my privacy. On the other hand, the female images and tangles/doodles pop off the page and startle me to think. Just love this juxtaposition!
