SOC4 Week Four - Catwalk Snails!

Hi Everyone,


Week Four of the Summer of Color 4 has flown by and yet again I am linking up my project at the eleventh hour!

Here's the delicious concoction which the lovely Kristin came up with for us this week ...


Pink and Apple Green, with a smudge, splash or pop of dark green ... and here's my page for this week, featuring a quote from Marie Curie ...


I drew the little girl first, then covered her with masking fluid before working on the background, using stencils and stamps to build up layers of colour and pattern with inks, mists, paints and gelatos. The floral pattern was torn from a napkin and adhered to the page with matt medium. 

Once the background was done, I removed the masking fluid and then coloured in the little girl with blendable pencils. Finally I wrote the quote with a Sakura Glaze pen in a dark green and filled in the loops with an acrylic paint pen. 


So here's all the stuff I used - but wait! Who's that glamourous girly gliding across my page??? Let's have a closer look ...



Meet Rosie Bucket (pronounced boo-kay if you please) - the latest snail to get a Mixed Media Makeover and join my little Snail Trail ...

  • The lovely Lottie Lush on the left is wearing slinky spangled Lavender with Grey and a splash of Plum.
  • Next is cool Coral Fandango, sporting Teal and Coral with White spots.
  • Leader of the pack is Doris de Vine, dressed in Aqua and Yellow stripes. Doris wears her heart on her sleeve, with a dash of Hot Pink lipstick to match. 
  • Last but not least, comes Rosie Bucket showing off her fabulous floral confection in Pink and Apple Green with a touch of Dark Green.

The girls can't wait to see who is going to join them next week - watch this space! 

Make sure you pop over to Twinkle, Twinkle or check out the Facebook group to see how everyone else has been inspired by this brilliant challenge - and why not have a go yourself if you haven't already? It's great fun AND there is a lovely prize to win every week :o)

Thanks for visiting today, see you again soon.

Ah, you made me smile with this one. We always called my Mum Hyacinth Bucket, much to her annoyance, after the character in Keeping Up Appearances ;)

Love your journal page too - your girl is fab!
