Week 4 and I'm late!!

Ok it's late, first time ever for Summer of Color but, oh well sometimes life gets in the way of things and you just have to breath!!

The colors are a soft pink and grey and I wanted it to be soft and watery. The first one I did was on a canvas and really turned out quite bright so I sat it aside and started on a journal page instead.

 It has layers of water color and acrylic paint. I used some stamps with paint. I also used some water soluble crayons for the shadows but then I wanted it darker so I used charcoal pencil instead.

I used white paint for the dots around the butterflies which I used a Martha Stewart punch and an old book page for.

 I cut out the word from a vellum pack and some washi tape on the sides. It's soft and watery like I wanted. Thank you all so much for your comments I do love to read them!! xoxo

 On a side note I wanted to share a little artwork I did awhile back and didn't show you! I drew out the bird and feathers and the banner and then used watercolors to paint it and a stencil and acrylic paint. Hope you all had a safe and fun weekend!!

Beautiful use of the pink and grey. It looks very peaceful and calm. Love the butterflies, too.
