Green, Green, Pink
Hard to believe there is only one week left of the six weeks of the Summer Of Color Challenge!! Kristin has done an absolutely amazing job of posting, participating and visiting each and every link-over 100 every week !!!
Before I share my completed piece I want to show you a photo of two art postcards I received from a SOC participant:
Miriam graciously offers a few copies of her art to the first few who ask-and she sends anywhere! Well, I love her abstract pieces (this photo just doesn't do justice) and I boldly asked not once but twice -and she sweetly obliged! Thank you Miriam- I love these cards!!
Here is my entry for this week:
My color choices: Americana Baby Pink and Yellow Green acrylic paints and Folk Art Kelly green acrylic paint.
Other products-black, white gesso, Stabilo All pencil, graphite pencil, script stamp, Staz-On Jet Black ink, Caran D'Ache watersoluble crayon in Emerald Green, ARTchix Studio collage sheet sentiment.
I thought I was doing OK -and then I gave her eyelashes-and was NOT happy. I debated a do over of the eyes and set it aside. And then I went in search of one of the sentiments I've been using from the same collage sheet each week. My eyes rested on this one and I knew it was the one. I also knew I wasn't going to redo her eyes to try to make them "better" or more "perfect".
Today is my mother's 73rd birthday so I made her this card:
Bonne fête MéMé-je t'aime beaucoup!!
Since she will be away all day with friends I will host a dinner for her this Sunday and am surprising her with her very favorite French dessert- a homemade baba au rhum! I'm safe to share because she does not own a computer:)
