Summer of Color Week 5

Blimey! Can't believe that this is the penultimate week of Summer of Color 2013 - pop over to Twinkle Twinkle if you don't know what I'm on about and see for yourself.
Every week the wonderful Kristin gives us a new combination of colours to play with - this week it was Candy Apple Red and Yellow!

You can create anything you like using these colours, link up at Twinkle Twinkle, and then check out all the amazing creations other people have come up with - it can be anything from pennants to paintings, tags to tattoos and I'm always impressed and inspired.

Mine is an altered book art journal - somethinkg I've been meaning to do for ages. Here's my take on Candy Apple Red and Yellow

Bit weird, and not quite what I had in mind, but one of the best things about this project has been that I have been able to just let play with the colours and different media and see what happens - lots of fun and a great learning curve.
This time I started with a couple of coats of gesso, then masked off my apple shape and ran amok with acrylic inks, tore some "bites" and grungified a bit with Distress Inks, added some bright white acrylic paint and finally doodled with black fineliner.

Here are my previous weeks' pages, in no particular order

Citron Green and Turquoise

Lime Green and Purple

Hot Pink and Orange

Pale Pink and Charcoal
Can't wait to see what everyone else has done now!

Thanks for looking, see you again soon

What a lovely, delicious bite!!!. LOVE the shadowed, burnt edges on the page :). Very clever with the script/print exposed in the bitten area, so cute!
