summer of color - week six

This week's color combo for Kristin's Summer of Color, voted in by participants, is sepia and sage green.  Here are my last two ATC's for this fun summer project:

y summer is going by so quickly and I have been busy with my church activities, my family and my yard work/flower garden.  Not much time to do artsy stuff, because I would rather be out and about!  However, I did get a couple of journal spreads done in my little moleskine.  Here is the first:

A quote by Emily Dickinson.  I used rubber stamps, a Hero Arts stencil and distress inks on this spread. 

And here is the second:

More stamps, stencils, die cuts and Stickles glitter. 

Hope you are enjoying your summer, too!

summer of color - week five

Just a quick post today for Kristin's Summer of Color. This week's colors (chosen by popular vote) are red and yellow.  I rarely use these two colors together, but had a bit of fun coming up with two more ATC's to add to my collection:

Stamps are from Magenta.  I think of these colors as a bit Asian so that is what inspired these ATC's.

Thanks for all of your sweet comments and, also for your inspiration during these colorful weeks!!

summer of color week four

It is hard to believe that this is the fourth week of Kristin's Summer of Color.  The colors that were voted in for this week are charcoal gray and pale pink.  I do not think of these colors for summer, but maybe that's isn't the intent of this challenge.  Perhaps it is just a way of getting us to think of using colors that we may not normally use.

Again, I chose to make two ATC's for this week. I will enjoy looking back at my collection of ATC's using the six different color combos.

Kinda' girly and romantic this time.  I found both of these images in an old Readers Digest song book.  The word phrases were cut from old books; something I do when I am watching TV and there are too many commercials!  I like to use them in ways that make sense or not; whatever strikes my fancy.

Have a great week!
