"There's a shade of red for every woman"

I loved Audrey Hepburn and have quite a few quotes attributed to her! I wasn't so sure on this one, as I would say I don't wear red very often - then I looked in my wardrobe - rust..tick, cerise…tick, scarlet…tick,maroon..tick I could probably go on as I have lots of patterned items with red in them! So, Audrey was right! 

I made this spread in my small moleskine.
Still trying to use up scraps so the page was first covered with lots of torn up bits! I painted over everything with some quinacradine gold.
 The Graphic 45 lady is painted with watered down red paint.I added some washi tape, a TH ticket, and an image from a brochure.

I would like to enter in Linda's theme 'Fifty shades of Red' at Art Journal Journey. With my musical background and image I can also join in at Moo Mania and more as the theme this time is 'Music' 

I am getting close to the end of my BIG tidy so more time for crafting and walks I hope!

Thanks for looking, Chris
