The colour challenge over at PLAY DATE CAFE this week is slightly different in that you can pick your colours from the photo provided. I chose lime green, yellow and orange and this journal page spread is the result. The quote I used is by EDMUND DULAC who I know as an illustrator but apparently he wrote limericks too!
The frog is currently being used to advertise Sky TV I think, I cut him out of a mag!
I discovered something while I was making this page.........if you leave your favourite inks (Distress that is) in Almaty you are forced to use something else! I have STACKS of ink pads stored away so I took out one box and decided I would use something from inside it.........so I used several Versacolour cubes and some small chalk ink pads that I can't remember the last time I used them. I also used stamps I haven't used in ages too, I had forgotten how lovely this teasel stamp is. An exercise in not just reaching for your favourite every time!
Hello and welcome!
I like to travel and I'm incurably curious. I love my garden and I like to make things,
I like altered art and mixed media and have a leaning towards the slightly darker, weirder side of things....as you may notice!
