A colour scheme that may or may not work? – 12 x 12 mixed media art process

pastel yellow / light yellow, pink, and green mixed media art process video

Hi everyone!
Spring colours have always been one of my inspirations in creating mixed media art projects. This time, I am attempting to use a pastel-ish yellow.

The reason why I am using this colour is because of my chosen focal point, my mini envelopes, that I have been keeping in my stash. This colour choice may turn out to be a regrettable decision, but there is only one way to find out, right?

I am also using this sentiment from an old scrapbooking paper pack set:
” Tell your stories. Own everything that has happened to you. Don’t leave anything out. It’s all good stuff.”

The last line, “It’s all good stuff.” brings a smile to my face. I realize that whatever every person’s past may be, I believe, that there is something good that eventually comes out of it. Sometimes we can be too stubborn to see it – I know, I have been there multiple times.
