That is the color combination to use this week number 3 for Kristin's Summer Of Color Challenge. And let me say -this was a huge challenge for me because I am not a fan of purple. Matter of fact, I was lucky to have 2 different purple paints to use or I would have been making a trip to AC Moore!
The colors I worked with are: Golden Fluid Acrylic Paint-Permanent Violet Dark, Americana Acrylic Paint- Lavender, and Anita's Acrylic Paint-Banana Yellow.
And here is my journal page:
I am actually quite surprised it turned out so well! To get the brownish looking shading I mixed a bit of the yellow and dark purple. Other supplies: graphite pencil, gesso, Stabilo All pencil, rubber stamp (Tang Dynasty Writing- A Stamp In The Hand), Jet Black Staz-On Ink, sentiment (ARTchix Studio collage sheet), star stencil, glitter glue.
And now to something less colorful, but exciting as well. Earlier this week I received my complimentary issue of Somerset Studio July/Aug. because I had some art published for the black and white call for art challenge! Being such a lover of color this was another challenge for certain, but you know, once I started I couldn't stop! They have several more pieces of mine, so fingers crossed they'll appear in a future issue:)
These are the pieces in the magazine:
These canvases were totally inspired by Serena Barton whose style of wabi-sabi art I so love! I am only sorry that they omitted the credit I gave her for these pieces :(
To those of you visiting here-anyone else published in this issue? And also, to those of you who have been contemplating sending in some art, just DO IT!! It is impossible to predict what may get chosen so create from your heart and get to the post office!
In addition to Summer Of Color I will be visiting where I am also linking to: Art Journal Journey; Art Journal Every Day; Art It Friday-Show Your Face; and Paint Party Friday. Keep inspiring, and keep being inspired!
