SOC Week 3

 
 
 
 
Purple + purple + yellow...
wow!  Purple is one of those colours that is usually the last on the list,
almost to the 'steer clear of' list!
LOL, so this would be a challenge, and it worked! (weeell, it worked for me)
Another little quote page done for Hannah!
 


 
This time I've used Twinkling H20's and a aquabrush...
They leave a gorgeous 'shimmer' on the page (impossible to see from the photos)



 
More H20's are definitely in my plans!

Beautiful!
Such a nice idea to make these pages about "reading" in an altered book. Also like the quote!
Added your blog to my favourites ;-)

Sharon Fritchman said...

Absolutely wonderful! I just love your art journal pages that you made using this week's SOC colors! The quote is so perfect!!!! Thank you for sharing your talents with all of us! HUGS!!!

Lizzy Hill said...

I'd be running a mile from this colour combo, I must say. Almost as scary as red and green, to me! You ROCKED it! Looks great:) Nice quote ,too!!!

Deb said...

Another fabulous page/quote for your little books. This looks wonderful, Mandy.

I love this color combo. In our backyard there are a lot of purples and yellows. Great work.

Linda Kunsman said...

beautiful piece-and yes, although Twinks are so hard to capture in a photo I can imagine the shimmer because I own a bunch of them too:) SOC #54

Just beautiful!

Rolina said...

Oh, I do that when I read something special in a book!

Love your page, you handled the colours very well indeed.

Julia - Vintage with Laces said...

You've created beautiful pages again!

Sherry's Cabin said...

Yes, it worked quite well! I love it! I want to try an altered book, but I just haven't had the courage to "destroy" a book to give it new life. I think you may have inspired me to make this the day to try!
God bless,
Sherry

Neena said...

Love the quote. Twinks are fun. I need to get mine out and play.

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

I'm a BIG fan of H2Os also, so I knew the sparkle you described. This is a wonderful entry, especially since the words of the book show through. Of course, I simply adore how well you draw. This is fantastic.
