Summer of Colour - PINK: Art Journal Entry



Just a short post to link up for this week's Summer of Colour. This week's theme is Pink (my favourite!)




I used a bunch of stuff in this one. Caran D'ache Neocolor II and Reeves wax pastels, water colour crayons, India Ink (and a dip pen, hence the smears and drips), chalk pastels ... I think at one point I also used some Inktense blocks to up the intensity. Just fooling around, I found that when I heated up my paper, the wax pastels go onto the paper in a very dense layer. Nice.

Thanks for looking!!

  3. I love the little bits of wisdom you put on your petals. Especially "don't compare." I need to remind myself of that one a lot!
