F WAS A FANCIFUL FROG
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!
