It's Just a Jump to the Left

BLOG HOP!

I am not much of a scrapbooker, so forgive an old artist for not having any bells or whistles.
And fie on you, Diane, for making your house the same color! Great minds, I s'pose.






I tried to keep the colors in the copper and brass range, with the blueish tint to the house meant to play off copper patina. Brass was a little too yellow-y so most of that became more copperish.

The letter you're here for is "I" as in "I can't think of a good word starting with "i".

The next letter is at the next blog in the hop - Jodi's Kaboo Designs!

Now, put your hands on your hips...
