"Power Surge"

Power Surge
Journal Page
(Click on the fan to see the details!)

This page (for a private swap) was created with all of my rowdy friends of a "certain age" in mind. Need I say more???

On a different note, we were to do something on this page that was out of our comfort zone. Since I rarely use yellow, I thought I'd give it a whirl.

Hope you stay cool wherever you are!

A wonderful colour palette Terri including the yellow, and a giggle too since I spluttered with laughter when I saw the words. I believe I've had some power surges too.

The fan is the giveaway in this one. What a great name for a hot flash. Although, when you think of it.."Hot Flash" sounds pretty nifty too!!!

The yellow adds greatly to your piece. Fun to experiment out of our comfort zone once in awhile.

Not just a power surge but a color surge, too. I had a big laugh at the sentiment. We women of a certain age can truly relate. Love this beauty a LOT.
