Blue on blue

Started the spread with the Wonky Mickey Mouse teapot/cup setup for Jane LaFazio's class (done in continuous line) and wonky it is, but the technique is fun. Then I wanted to branch out to my favorite china pattern "Blue Calico" and the vase fit in quite well Not sure I like the pink striping I chose for the background but then again I freeze when adding any background or text.

The background caught my eye and really makes the blues stand out. You did good.
The pots make a wonderful contrast.

I think the pink stipes adds good contrast and interest to the page. Looks like you are enjoying your class.
