Models Own Green Grass

Hey folks, I hope you've all had a good start to your weeks.

Tonight, I don't have any 'art' for you; quite frankly I've been uninspired this weekend.  Instead, I have a straight up block colour for you:

 Models Own 'Green Grass'.

For a long time I hated the colour green. I used to wear a bottle green uniform to school and to me, the colour signified all that was dull and dreary. There were other schools in our vicinity who wore lovely uniforms. Another girls school near us wore a beautiful royal blue kilt with red and gold threading...and then there was us. In green. Green was not a cool colour, it was the colour of bogey. When the girls at school were rallying for the introduction of trousers to our uniform repertoire, I kept my gob well and truly shut - can you imagine...bottle green polyester trousers?! In the SUMMER?!! Thank goodness our Head Master (who held an MBE from the Queen, don't you know) threw that idea out of the window...along with allowing boys to come to the school!

Years later, I've come to like green quite a lot although I do not own a stitch of bottle green clothing. I just can't do it.

As I look at these pictures, I'm quite disappointed that I didn't have the time or the gumption to get my stamping plates out. I think I will this week.  In fact, I'm off to paint my nails right now!

Take care all...



  1. Loving that color. are you going to stamp this one.. I cant wait :)

  2. I'm totally lusting after this polish.

  3. I am not a green fan, but this is actually pretty!

  4. Great colour and it looks like it would make a great base for stamping.

  5. I'm not a huge fan of green but I really like this colour! It's so bright and fun.
    My school uniform was maroon. To this day, I cannot stand anything that colour.

  6. Beautiful green! I have been unable to find a shade quite like this one; I love it!!

  7. Thank you for your comments ladies. I've been so busy, I've not been able to reply to everyone.
