Yellow and red!

Yellow and candy apple red! Love this color combo, even though my background turned out quite orange . I did use the dylusions ink in yellow and red for the background and added some scrapes of red and yellow and even a little white with an old iTunes card.

I painted the girls dress yellow and added the words with a Pitt pen and white dots with a white Gellyroll pen.

 I used a plate to trace a circle around the girl and added the words and then the circles and filled them in with a white marker. I then added the rays and yellow dots with paint.

I added the yellow dots with paint on her color as well. I did use some water crayon on her face to give her more color and made a darn smudge on her forehead ! Need to clean my fingers more I guess lol! Thank you all for the comments love them all so much !

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!!
