Hello artistic friends.

 I am so excited to participate in the...
 SUMMER OF COLOR challenge. 

 Each week we will be given different colors to use. 

It is called Color By Number for instance... this week: 
1 Blue + 1 Blue + 1 Green = CREATION!!

Click HERE for Twinkle,Twinkle Like A Star blogspot

I used Dylusions Paints:

London Blue, Vibrant Turquoise and Fresh Lime.

As well as black and white!

Silks Acrylics were used - in the same tones of blue and

 green - to add some shimmer! 

The outlines were done with a black Pit Pen.

I got to thinking afterwards that some folks may not consider Turquoise - blue but I always have so hope it works ok!

So fun to see what all the other folks have done with the 3 colors.  There are lots of participants. I am looking forward to next week.  It's always most fun to just do free play with colors! 
Hugs. j

This is fantastic, Joi! I love the colours, and that sentiment is really, really nice ... ♥
I bet the Silks have an amazing shimmer in person, often hard to show on photos.

Jennifer Rose said...

lots of movement on the page, well done with the rain.
Turquoise can go either way, think its to due with the shade and how people see the colour :) usually blue to me

Well - you'll already know that I love the blue-green combo - and the shimmer is so cool - what a fabulous page! We've had plenty of that rain, so it's looking pretty green and lush here, but I could do with some sunshine now.
