This is my
First of all, I must catch up
with the colour
More orange in reality than it appears in the scan,
these pages have a ripped paper background, gesso'd and painted,
and then sprayed with copper spray for richness.
Kristin suggested using a quote or saying in this week's artwork
and I particularly like this by the late, great
'Life is what happens to you
while you're busy
making other plans'
I love the photo, bought in an Ebay job lot,
and the expression on the lady's face seems to be saying,
"Oh my goodness, how did this happen?!"
Next, it's time to finish up.
Kristin gave us a free rein to end this year's
Summer of Colour.
I pinched Lisa's idea (and if you haven't seen her artwork,
click on her name and have a look at her brilliant pages)
and used many colours for my final
I made a patchwork of inch squares cut from vintage papers
which I gesso'd and then used water soluble crayons.
I gesso'd lightly again to mute the colours.
The cute image of the tiny tots (with evacuee labels)
was from a book - how sweet are their little hats?!
Finally, Kristin thought we might like to
present a round up of the artwork produced over the past few weeks.

I will really miss Kristin's weekly challenge :o(
I have so enjoyed taking part,
'meeting' other bloggers
and seeing so much brilliant artwork.
The good news is that Kristin will be running a
Summer of Colour 2012!
