SOC4 Week One

After seeing so many of the blogs i follow taking part in this challenge thought it was time to pay them a visit and see what the excitement was about.

Over at Twinkle Twinkle Like A Star blog page i found this page which gives you all the information you need if you wish to participate in

The colours this week are

Aqua Blue & Yellow

With a Smudge, Splash or Pop of Hot Pink.

Seeing as i am not a lover of either yellow or pink this challenge is good for me as it will make me use colours i find difficult.

Used a book page as the background to the journal page, Portfolio Pastels to create the circles and dots, a Uni Pin pen to highlight areas, Rainbow Glaze to add a little dimension to the pink circles and the pink flower.

Love Posca Pens, their colours are so vibrant yet can be watered down to produce a lovely wash, here i chose to use them as they come out of the pen, the yellow on the dots is very bright.

Used Andy Skinner stencil Hippy chick and turquoise shade Pan Pastels to add the female shape,a black glitter frame to show off the flower and some hot pink washi tape which was given to my by the lovely Keren Baker,thank you Keren!

Hoping you like this entry into Week One of this fabulous challenge, hope to see you there sometime.

Thanks for dropping by.

  11. This is really attractive, Paper rainbow above has said it all. Yes, it is good to sometimes try out new colour schemes. I liked reading about your use of the art materials too.

  19. I've been stepping out of my colour comfort zones lately, but jeepers, I think I'd find this combination impossible. (In fact, when I do step outside, I seem to stay in monochrome with whatever colour I've picked - it's the combinations I find hard, I think.)

    But I love what you've done here... the book page background, dots of colour (especially with the dimensional glaze - very cool), and the turquoise figure is lovely.

  26. Thanks for the visit earlier, I know Daisy, she is now not so well though and in the same retirement home as my mother. Her daughter Pamela paints now and so the little croft studio near Dunvegan is still open to visitors. hope you like the new SOC colours, they are much more my thing! :)

  28. Very nice. I missed this last week. I'm not fond of pink, either, but it is good to be challenged to use colors we wouldn't normally choose ourselves. I think I will try some of this Posca pens ---always looking for something different to try.
