Gracie's Roses

The challenge this week at Make it Colourful is to blend the colors yellow and green and is sponsored by Crissy's Art & Heart. I tried to blending the two colors together and see how that turned out. It was actually more difficult than I thought. I think if I had started with the green then added the yellow that it might have been worked out better, however, the result I got is still good.


The sentiment is by Helen Keller and says "The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched. They must be felt with the heart."

Did you know? Helen Adams Keller (June 27, 1880 – June 1, 1968) was an American author, political activist, and lecturer. She was the first deafblind person to earn a Bachelor of Arts degree. The story of how Keller's teacher, Anne Sullivan, broke through the isolation imposed by a near complete lack of language, allowing the girl to blossom as she learned to communicate, has become widely known through the dramatic depictions of the play and film The Miracle Worker.
