Shut up and Colour...





lol sorry...I really don't mean that it just came out....sometimes I feel like shouting this though when people are so self absorbed or grumpy. Those who are so involved with themselves they can't see past their own nose...or when I watch the news and people are doing such insane actions...Just Shut up and colour, you'll forget what you were mad about...while your at it share your crayons with a kid and feel the magic....

The story behind this shadow box starts with a great friend going on a wonderful trip ...a true trip of a lifetime. She thought of me on this trip and I believe it was in Turkey that she had handmade paper made in front of her. There she thought of me and bought me these amazing crayons as a gift.
I could not bring myself to use them and they were just to pretty to sit in a container so here is my tribute to colours, friendship, travel, and art....thank you Suzanne you always help me see the creative side.....The pictures do not do it justice but I just cannot get a good shot in...sorry.
