Pink and Apple Green, with a smudge, splash or a pop of dark green.
Such luscious, girly-girl colors for this week at Summer of Color.
Pinks and greens together, always make me think of flowers, so it's no surprise that flowers are included in what I did this week.
The first thing I did was search out some scraps of pink and green felt, a couple of buttons, beads, and pink, and green embroidery floss which I used to make this sweet pink flower.
Isn't it cute?! I've attached a clip to the back and it's destined to make it's way to our little niece, Isabella, to attach to her headbands and hats, or use as decor.
I got the idea for these flowers from Bronwyn Hayes of Red Brolly. Last year, I won a copy ( I actually won something!) of the May 2013 issue of Homespun Magazine, from Bronwyn. In that issue was Bronwyn's tutorial and templates for her felt flowers. Instant love! She also has a tutorial on Red Brolly, which you can find HERE.
Next, a mixed media piece, done on 9 x 12 mixed media paper, with gesso, gel medium, inks, acrylics, various papers and Faber-Castell gel sticks.
The green exploded all over the pink background. I'm pretty happy with the way it turned out, after many many layers of paint.
