Hello Thursday and hello dear series of dragonfly collages (continuing from this collage).

And hi there blues! Yes, that’s right. Blue! Blue as in blue colors, not the feeling (trying to shake it and move on). I have never claimed blue as mine, and it’s rare that I’m drawn to blue things except maybe blue jean and cute little smurfs. I don’t find it a very happy color, so it doesn’t cheer me on like red, yellow or green. But even though blue does not feel like a iHanna color it’s still part of my vocabulary – at times a big part of it…

And when I start to play with blue, I find I actually like it.

I especially like blue vintage looking patterns. Like blue striped or checked fabrics, and of course those security envelope patterns… I like the weathered blue, the worn out used blue almost bleached until obliviation – from time and sun.

Subtle blue can feel very yummy, if you know what I mean.
