It's Week 3 for Kristin's Summer Of Color Challenge. These are the colors she chose:
Lavender & Grey
with a Smudge, Splash or Pop of Plum
These are definitely NOT colors I like to use but I DO love a challenge:) The inspiration for my journal page also came from this link on Susi's blog ( thank you!).
Linking my journal page to SOC, Mix It Monthly ( theme is "home"), Art Journal Journey (theme is "houses"), Simon Monday Challenge Blog (theme is "I Ought To Use This More")-I used some very old scrapbook papers, Art Journal Every Day, and of course- Paint Party Friday!
I also created a card inspired by this new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches :
Products: red note card (Halcraft USA); white, red, navy card stock (the Paper Studio); patterned paper (DCWV); silver paper (Canson); clear stamp (Think Big Favorites#4-Papertrey Ink); Le Plume marker no. 3 blue, corner rounder, lg. star punch (Marvy Uchida); small star punch; tiny star gems (Nail jewels-Dollar Store).
I'm also linking my card to the Simon Wednesday Challenge (theme is "anything goes"). Thanks to all the awesome hosts and DT members of the challenges! See you soon...

You made a super job on your journal page, they were difficult colours for me too, I like them but I wouldn't choose to use them or wear them. Well doneReplyDelete
Lovely use of the colours this week-what a gorgeous scene. Your 4 th July card is lovely-who knows maybe after September this year Scotland will be able to celebrate its own independence day!ReplyDelete

HI Linda...what a gorgeous, decorative and artistic piece...spectacular for soc colors...and it is enchanting and magical..LOVE that deep rich purply door..like a fairy door or some magical fairytale house! Shine on!ReplyDelete
You did a great job with the colors, and I fell in love with the door. It's just so beautiful. Well done.ReplyDelete
Your little house is darling. I can imagine opening the door and smelling fresh bread baking. Very nice use of the colors.ReplyDelete
Wonderful work! ValerieReplyDelete
I adore the house that you made and even though you say this is not a color palette you often use, you definitely nailed it! I thought the colors were whimsical and vibrant and I love the flowers you added to the front. I also thought it was so clever to use up some scrapbook paper scraps to create your house. You added so many unique and eclectic elements, yet they all work perfectly together. The door is fabulous and it's a very happy and sophisticated piece. I'm so glad that you shared it with us here at the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog!ReplyDelete
Nice - I LOVE the door - great pop of plum!!!!ReplyDelete
This is very nice. I like that you mixed your own paint to get the colors.ReplyDelete
