Rainbows.....Journal HeART week 19

Good moaning bloggers!!

Oh what a delightful few days of weather we have had 'up north this week!! NOT!!! 
However it has given me the inspiration for this week's prompt.....
that wonderful phenomenon RAINBOWS

As you may have realised by now any excuse for me to break out the colour pot and brighten the day....

So I used lots of translucent paints to create a base layer of red, yellow and orange (ok ok I did sneak a bit of pink in as it was left over from another project :-P) all applied with baby wipes until I was happy with the vibrancy. I love translucents as they add tone without making a page look "heavy" or dull.

Then I added a small amount of blue and electric green before adding the opaque pale violet through a prima stencil

I then took this fab stencil from Donna Downey and added a light whitewash and the indigo colour to make her stand off the page some more.

To finish I added the wording freehand using white detail to make it pop.

I was so happy with this page I decided to repeat it as an inspirational canvas for my new ETSY shop.....FaireFoxArt

So there it is take RAINBOWS as your inspiration, 
whether its using the colours as I did or the shapes as I have done in this earlier page....

Happy Journalling and see you all next week!!

Crafty Cheers for now
