Hi everyone. Thanks to all of you who joined us for our last spring themed challenge at Try It On Tuesday There were so many wonderful entries.
It is time for a new challenge once again. For the next 2 weeks we are asking you to Make a Rainbow.
I made a rainbow of some hand doodled tulips in a hand drawn acetate vase. This little bird is also bringing us another flower. This one is a color wheel, which also has a rainbow of colors on it.
I played around with several things on this journal page. I tried sponging white gesso over a blue painted sky to get some details and texture. I also played around creating an acetate vase for the tulips. And the biggest thing I needed to play around with was the table where the vase is placed. I shouldn't have picked blue for the background, but I stamped on it and added bits of printed tissue paper to create more texture and depth. It also helped distinguish it from the sky. I'm not sure that the bottom background works as well as I would like it to, but it works enough that I can live with it. I also took the challenge a bit on the literal side, and that is why my tulips are outside, where a rainbow might fill the sky.
Finally I stitched my whole page onto to some polka dot paper to finish it off with a little frame.
Be sure to check out all the colorful designs the other design team members have created.
I am also linking my journal page up to Art Journal Journey. This month we are honoring Eileen and her Inspired By theme, and Chris of Pear Shaped Crafting and myself are hosting. I was inspired by spring flowers and rainbows.
I hope to see your rainbow art over at Try It On Tuesday. Remember the challenge runs for 2 weeks and is open to all forms of art.
Thanks for visiting.
Oh my gosh Erika... one of my faves of yours! LOVE that rainbow color wheel! Fantastic background! Have a super week! ((HUGS)) Helen
Such a gorgeous page! I love how you captured those rainbow colours on the tulips and the blue background is beautiful - perfect 😀. Have a wonderful week and sending you happy and creative wishes! Hugs, Jo x
p.s. sorry I haven't visited for a while, I hurt my wrist so was unable to type, all ok now so just need to play catch up ...lol 😉. x
A lovely happy page and the rainbow tulips work so well against the pale blue sky, and the little bird is so sweet bringing another colourful flower.
Have a great week.
Beautiful bouquet of tulips in the color of a rainbow. Of course the bird couldn’t choose a single color so he chose a flower of all the colors. Isn’t he smart. I love knowing how you created your background from the sky to the table. It’s always a challenge to change a background start to something you like better. I like how you made the changes. I’m always learning some new way to create in AJJ.
Beautiful tulips and you can never go wrong with blue
Hi Erika! I LOVE your beautiful journal page, the tulips are fantastic. Have a great day, hugs Valerie
Your rainbow of flowers is beautiful. I was especially impressed with the vase and how you used German scrap at the top. I also loved your color wheel. Such a lovely, lovely entry and also perfect for honoring Eileen at Art Journal Journey, too dear.
Your rainbow page is gorgeous, love all in it. It's beautiful and uplifting.
So have a happy day, my friend xx
Wow! I love your rainbow coloured tulips Erika, and the little scalloped edging at the top! A gorgeous page!
Your rainbow tulips look fantastic Erika. its a beautiful page How good it would be to catch a rainbow they always look so magical.
Wonderful tulips! Love the bird too. Your take on the rainbow is wonderful and even the color wheel is a thoughtful addition. Fun stuff. I am going to try the rainbow theme. Hugz
This one is really sweet, Erika. I love art with birds and the colors are lovely.
I love the tulip colors and the little bird's gift :) I think the blues work well as you composed this.
I have to agree with what everyone else has said!
Wonderful tulips, such brilliant colours :)
All the best Jan
Another lovely page Erika. I do like your tulips and what a fabulous idea to have the little bird bring in another flower in the form of the colour wheel. Inspiration indeed.
Hugs, Neet xx
Your little bird is so kind to bring you the colour wheel - he spotted that it goes so well with your beautiful tulips! I love this blue background, the tulips putting their heads up to the sky are just perfect! Hugs, Chrisx
Fantastic, so many rainbow tulips, I love it!
Now my Mom would love a vase full of rainbow coloured Tulips what a pretty sight that would be. Using the colour wheel is a great little addition Erika, wonderful theme @ TioT as always. Hugs Tracey xx
