Week 2 Summer of Colour

Pink + Pink + Orange

This week our colour theme from Kristin's Summer of Colour challenge is, as above; and how striking they are together, don't you think?

Again, I decided to use a handy index card, seeing as how the Index Card A Day (ICAD) challenge is in full swing, and on day 17, as we speak.

I used Guava pink Gelato on the text paper background, and for the lettering and doodles, I used a deep pink Stabilo Fineliner and an orange Stabilo Fineliner. 
I envisioned it as a lot more striking than it seems, but alas, it looks rather washed out in this photo. I promise, it is brighter irl. In fact, the Guava pink is rather a lovely colour. 
Thank you for the colour choice Kristin, they clash beautifully! :D

Now, as it is Wednesday, I also have an Anti Journal spread to show you.

I rather love how this looks. I used a home made quill pen and black acrylic paint, (because I didn't have any ink), that I thinned down with water to make it easier to use. 
I was inspired to this by Tammy Garcia's fabulous, and free Draw Your Words Workshop on her blog.
The actual page prompt on the left, was Shout Colourful Language, but I spread to both pages, and on the right at the bottom it says, Uglify Beauty,  Most of the black splodges were already there; I just added to them and enhanced them a little. 
Btw, under the feather is the letter G for GOLD, (just in case you thought I'd written 'old purple', lol) 
I'm looking forward to seeing what Karen and Carolyn have done in their journals this week too. Click on their names to jump over to their fabulous blogs, anytime you like., 

Thank you so much for popping in, I really appreciate your visit and your comments. 
Take Care. Be well.

  1. Looks like you had fun with your quill pen! Nice work for SOC, too. Hugs, Valerie

  2. Super piece for SOC ! Wow! And your anti journal spread is fab!

  3. You certainly are putting those ICADs to work for you, especially since you are using them for your SOC entries. I just finished mine, so I'm thrilled to be able to visit yours already. It is gorgeous, and I like your choice of materials for the challenge.

  4. I can't believe you're up to no. 17 in the ICAD challenge already. How time fly's. I had a similar experience with the SOC colours. I had difficulty choosing shades that looked different on camera when you could see the difference on paper.

  5. I would never have put those colours together but I think they look great!

    Clever you watering down the acrylic paint to use as ink in your journal - I love those blobs too! Great work, as always! Hugs, Anne xx

  6. nice ICAD and black and white journal pages!

  7. Love the idea of the card an d fun example!

  8. Love the anti journal spread you created! And your ICAD using this week's SOC colors is totally GORGEOUS! It really caught my eye. I love how you did your lettering here! Thanks for sharing it with all of us at SOC this week! HUGS!!!

  9. Fabulous use of this weeks SOC Anita #29 itsamistry Design Studio

  10. I've never used a quill pen. Great job using it.

  11. I really like the dangles on your SOC/ICAD! Your Anti Journal spread is fun!

  12. I like the idea of using guava color for a summery piece, since it's so tropical. Your index card is luscious.

  13. I love how you combined the challenges. Lovely work!

  14. Guava pink sounds amazing! The shades you've picked are so summery and warm! I love the anti journal page too :-D

  15. I agree pink and orange looks wonderful together! The pen and "ink" turned out great, it's been ages since I've done any. :)


Thank you for taking the time to comment, I appreciate every one of them ((hugs)) :-))
