Thank you to everybody who stopped by last week and left those wonderful comments. I think I succeeded in visiting everybody (I hope) last week; it was interesting and also inspiring to see so many different work spaces and what everybody is working on. I saw quite some Christmas stuff, you're way ahead of me!
Well, it's Halloween for me. Blame it on Louise Gale and her Creative Color Challenge - the last one, actually. Guess what this week's color is?
Purple intimidates me. It is such a strong color, it seems to shout "Here I am!" loud and clear.
So I decided to give it a playful touch, and since Halloween is my favorite holiday (this is the child in me, I know) it turned into something ghoulish. What you see is probably not the end result, I still want to spark it up a little bit. However, in creating the background I followed Mon's inspiration - gluing torn paper down, paint over it with one color (lavender), then paint with another color (purple) - the second color I actually smudged on with a paper towel. After that I started playing with those foam stamps, oh what fun I had. Now I need to work on jazzing it up a bit.
If anyone of you wants to know: I didn't do anything on the orange piece of last week, but I finished the sea-green canvas, "The Voice of the Sea". You can see it here.
I more and more enjoy our WOYWWs. It is so nice to meet you all. Still wondering about it? Find out more over at Julia's Stamping Ground or just hit the WOYWW-button on the sidebar.
