Summer of Color...Green Citron & Turquoise...Updated!


I am doing the Summer of Color 2013 challenge and Week One is Citron Green and Turquoise! Wowza, what a fun color theme!! I made a quick art journal background using gelli prints, acrylic paints, gesso and colored napkins applied with matte medium.

Updated! I used a face stencil by Jane Davenport and took the journal spread further with more layers of acrylic paints, inks and pens. I will add some writing once it all dries. Love this color combo!
