colour your tuesday happy...

...with snippets of colour (on a backdrop of neutrals!)...

...untitled by sandra juto...

...The Village by thelittlereddoor...

...speechbubbles by herzensart... cushion pileup by anastasiart...

...patches Sevilla rock by skinnylaminx...

...i like pesky squirrels... by dottieangel...

...i really can't get enough of this combination just now! beautiful backdrops of soft greys, whites, beige and taupe with splashes of bold and beautiful vintage colours like teal, olive, red, rust and turquoise. i love how each of these images is colourful yet understated, simple but so full of detail, honest and unpretentious ~ something that i'm always striving for in my work, especially honesty. what about you? what's the driving force behind your work? what ideals do you try to embrace?

...i hope you're feeling inspired today, but if you need more inspiration or motivation hop on over to 'all colours in...' with a fresh brew and maybe a choccy bar too :)

...oh, and thank you all for being so understanding about my lazy-blogger-itis, with two posts in two days i feel like i may be getting over it! now there's just the rest of that to do list to tackle...

(who's chocolate supply is dwindling fast!)
