PTI October '17 Blog Hop: Capture the Wonder


It's the 25th of the month, and that means, Blog Hop Time at PapertreyInk.
 Nichole has challenged us with images from this photo, featuring artist, Adolfo Serra.


I always like to learn about artists I'm not familiar with, so I googled Adolfo Serra, 
and found some more of his art.
Among them, this scarlett and grey bird.
The colors inspired this watercolor card,


Holiday Greens Borders Vintage Ornaments, 
Sentiment from: Wonderland Kit
Windsor Newton Watercolors


Play along all day on Nichole's Blog.
Happy crafting and Happy Hopping!
