This weeks challenge over at SOC week 2 was a little daunting for me.
The colour options were, Teal, Coral and a pop of Bright White.
I had no idea where to start.
I didn't have Coral so I had to mix the colour which actually didn't turn out to bad.
The colour was brayered onto a an A3 piece of card and lines were added with the edge of an old plastic credit card, (Yes, they have an after life). LOL.
Still Stumped with what to create and not wanting to bore people with yet another canvas, I made up my mind to do a background for my July Art Calendar Journal Page.
So next up I stencilled black paint through an assortment of masks.
Followed by white, slightly off from the black image to create a sort of shadow effect, the leaves were left black as I felt it need a bit of well, black to lift it. (Hope this was OK).
Next came a few shades of teal which appear really pale on the photos, this was applied directly on the top of the white to give a more realistic or pure colour.
White paint was used on a script stamp and stamped through the masks to add detail to the flowers.
A few dandelion heads and small circles were stamped around the page too.
I haven't yet put the journaling squares in place as I like to appreciate the background first.
So hope you like it so far.
Bye for now
