Minty fresh...

I just love this month's colour at White with 1:

I started with the patterned paper - the closest colour I had to 'mint' - I gesso'd in white over the top to take out the olive tones and got it pretty close, I think.  After that I did a little background stamping with white paint, and kept the rest simple to let the photograph speak for itself:

I can never seem to get greens to photograph true to life, but hopefully this is close enough!
