WELCOME TO WEEK 1 OF SUMMER OF COLOR 2013

Today started another session of Summer of Color challenges.  I had done it last year and really enjoyed it. You can create absolutely anything as long as you use the color palette provided for the week.  Our first prompt for 2013 is the color combo of Citron Green and Turquoise.  

I opted to work on an art journal page as well as 2 small canvases.  

I will first show you the art journal work:

Step 1 was done using reinkers that I added to spray bottles of water and misted my page.



Step 2 I gathered some of my Crafters Workshop Templates and the inkpads and blending tools and went to town moving them all over the page randomly.


For Step 3 I searched for a quote I liked and added that to the page using my favorite black Pitt pen and an assortment of letter stickers.


and now to add some finishing touches and texture and embellishing!  

Step 4 I added dimensional pearls and stickles and drizzled reinkers.  Next I took the Donna Salazar crackle stamp with black archival ink and stamped randomly all over the page.  Finally I added some Sassafrass chipboard button flowers and some fabic flowers that I inked to match with coordinating button centers.

I am also entering this into the Colorful Creations Say It With Words challenge using the word 'happiness'.

Thanks for stopping by.  Keep your eyes open for the canvases to follow soon...
