|This weekend, I had a very quick, very enjoyable play with colour to prepare this week's diary/journal, based on this week's challenge from |
The Documented Life Project, which was to use at least 5 layers - and do a "high five"!
Earlier today I passed by one of my favourite clothing stores and the colours in the window made me stop, stare and memorise the combination - orange, candy pink, aubergine and grey.
While I was playing on the page, we had a heavy rain shower, followed by a perfect rainbow and then a glorious sunset.
The sky turned into luminous hues of lilac, pink, orange and gold as the setting sun peeked out just below the rainclouds.
So I just had to play with these colours!
|First layer - stencilling with pink, green and black blow pens.|
Then I started playing around with these wonderfully textured paper squares on the paper.
|Second layer - Relief printing with embossed paper|
& distress ink
|Layers 3 & 4 - Collage with various textured paper squares - and then - finger painting with pink and lilac acrylic paint|
|The remaining paint was scraped onto the left hand diary page with an old credit card|
|Almost done - my worktable says it all!|
|Add some orange spray ink, 3 numbers, pencil for contrast, |
some blue gel pen lines and we're done!
