The color yellow..

Oh my goodness I want to thank everyone for their wonderful comments! Plus my new followers as well! I am so loving this, I get to see so much beautiful art from some wonderful people! This is my version of yellow. I started with some pastels in yellow and a little green and , really just smeared it on! I sprayed a fixative on it so it would stay. I then added some layers of acrylic paint and some stamps. I used some of my fav paint pens again!

I used some Mod Podge dimensional magic on the fish, the worm and the lemon. Kinda hard to tell in the pics though.





I added some snaps for my metal, oh I also used some metallic paints in the background too. These little snaps reminded me of life preservers. ;) I added some bits and pieces around the edges and added some charcoal pencil, really I use the sticks, I don't like the pencils very much, around the edges of the images.







I do love the way he turned out! I love yellow it's so sunny and cheery and I can't help but smile when I see it.






So the point of this one is to Just be you!!! So I'm gonna go look at all the other yellow art out there! Thanks for looking and hope you all have a great day!!

This is so clever! and I love the whole concept!!
When I use charcoal I also use the sticks rather than the pencils.
It seems that the messier the better!
