VSW: Burano, Italy, 4

W16 2 7 VSW BURANO ITALY 007I am running out of time this month due to other commitments, so decided to take scrap colored paper and do an insert.  Blue seemed a good color for a place where this color adorns many homes!  Still playing with colored pencils; it is not my favorite thing, but will continue with it for a while to see if I can break through the barrier.

W16 2 7 VSW BURANO ITALY 011 This became a tip-in to the spread on Burano,
and will be the end of my spreads unless I find time later this month.
This light Canson paper did not tip-in well, a lesson for me!
The glue pulled it apart rather than keeping it set.

I have three last images of the whole spread in its entirety.

I started a Facebook group page (you must join to view) to allow everyone to share their virtual sketches, and also where we will, from time to time, take virtual sketch walks together.  Come join us On Facebook if you are inclined!
If you want to know more about what a virtual sketchwalk is review my first post.
There are a few more notes/pointers on our first walk through Laguna Beach, California.

I also created an accompanying Flickr group!
