Summer of Color weeks 4 & 5

I missed the deadline for Week 4 of Summer of Color which was charcoal grey and pale pink  but decided I would still play.  I didn't try a new Gelli technique, I tried out some new acrylic paints instead.




I liked this one best of all so I stuck it into my journal.

Then I put modelling paste through two stencils - a round one on top of the alphabet one.  However the stencils weren't very clean so the white has come out a creamy sort of colour.

And these are some mop ups.

So, on to week 5, Candy Apple Red and Yellow.    It has been really hot here in the UK - well hot for us - around 27 degrees Celsius - and I have found it quite uncomfortable.   It has reminded me of a British comedy programme which every week had a weather forecast.

                    

And so  I took my red and yellow page

stuck it in my journal and using Dylusions alphabet stamps stamped Scorchio!

Thanks for stopping by.

  1. What fun to see two weeks worth of SOC colors. You made gray and pink look elegant, and of course, I love how you paired yellow and red with heat. I like how you think!

  2. I haven't started on the red and yellow yet. I think it will have a summer heat theme as well.

  8. Haha, love your scorchio piece, it's been hot here as well, rather suddenly, so I had no time to acclimatise... a week before that I was still wearing big jumpers and vests.
