Snapshot - Dusty Attic mood board

Hello everyone welcome to my little blog
I am so pleased you are here .
I have another gorgeous mood board to share with you ..oozing with chippies from
Dusty Attic 

For this month I chose to go with the deep blue, pale blue/green and add a dash of the pale sandy
 tone and tiny strips of orange
(I always seem to struggle with blue/green , they never seem to photograph as well as other colors , but I hope you get the idea of the color hues.. ).

I love seagulls .. they fascinate me with their behaviour and
the way they flock together to pick up crumbs and food at the beach .
when they sit and watch they appear to be very majestic and aware of their surroundings .
thanks so much for popping by and I hope you are inspired to have a play with this months
rich colors.
