Mixed Media Makeover - Here Come the Girls!

Hi Everyone,

The six weeks of Summer of Color 4 was another colourful rollercoaster full of fun and inspiration and it just flew by - I had a great time trying out all the delicious combinations the lovely Kristin came up with for us this year.


Each week we had two colours to conjure with, plus a "smudge, splash or pop" of an accent colour. It was a great opportunity to practice with different media and techniques in my art journal pages and I also enjoyed a new experiment - Snail Art!

Here is the final line-up of my Gorgeous Girls after their mixed media makeovers ...


From right to left we have ...
  • Week One was the delectable Doris de Vine, resplendent in Aqua and Yellow stripes, wearing her heart on her sleeve and a dash of Hot Pink lipstick.
  • Week Two was cool Coral Fandango, sporting a fun Teal and Coral outfit with White spots to match her eyes.
  • Week Three was the lovely Lottie Lush, looking slinky in spangled Lavender and Grey with a stripe of Plum.
  • Week Four was Rosie Bucket (pronounced boo-KAY if you please), showing off a fabulous floral number in Pink and Apple with a touch of Dark Green.
  • Week Five was Mee-Shell MaBelle, wearing a Royal Blue shell suit with a Red striped body and a touch of Light Blue twine tied in a jaunty bow.
  • Week Six was the beautiful Betty Blush, modelling the latest ombre style in Raspberry and Mandarin with Yellow highlights to bring out her eyes.
Aren't they glamourous?! But the girls have never forgotten their humble beginnings, and this week they were keen to go back to their roots ...


This is part of my little herb garden, where six empty shells were discovered just a few weeks ago. First, I had to rebuild them - I had the technology ...


Each one was given a unique new body made of DAS air-hardening clay ...


... this one was destined to become Rosie Bucket. Here are all the girls in their natural state, waiting for their mixed media makeovers ...


... and one more look at the final line-up ...


You can see how much fun I had with this I think! Check out all the other creativity inspired by SOC4 over at Twinkle Twinkle or on the Facebook page
