Hi you all, hope you are having a good week. My painting today is for the Summer of Colour - hosted by the sweet Kristin and for Paint Party Friday, hosted by Eva and Kristin. The colours for SOC this week are citron green and turquoise, and I made an African landscape with unusual colours.
I painted the background with thinned down acrylics to make the colours more transparent, sprayed with some watered down green, and then stamped and stenciled with DI peeled paint. I went round the outlines of my African scene with a felt tip pen, and used the same colour for the text, although it looks blue here, as the pens are rather transparent and show the colours underneath. The quote is from Nelson Mandela.
This journal spread was made over pages which had been used to take the remainder of my colours from last week, livened up with half a cup of coffee (ooooops!) and a bit of yellow. I had no theme or challenge in mind, and just let it run. I stamped, stenciled, collaged, doodled and had fun; this is the result:
This was fun to make, and thanks to Eva, Kristin and Kristin for organising these events.
Have a good week you all, take care, and thanks for coming by!
