Green is my Fav!

Hello all you creative geniuses!  And I'm not kidding!  After viewing so much of your work for blue week on the Summer of Color, I am dazed and amazed at the flow of creativity out there!

I want to thank all of you who came to view my blog and my work and to those of you who are now following.  I hope you enjoy your visit here.  I've been unusually busy these last couple of weeks and I am struggling to keep up with everyone so hang tight and I'll get to your blog eventually - lol!

I would have to say that all shades of green are probably my favorite color.  I wish I had had more time to work on this week's challenge!  So, here is my entry for GREEN week.


I continued on a theme I had started called "I Heart Art".  The substrate is inexpensive watercolor paper and I used a combination of watercolor and acrylic paints.  All the spraying of stencils was done with glimmer mist.  I collaged pieces of torn book pages and a little script from scrapbook paper and then added a touch of glitter.  From some painted grocery brown bags I cut out green hearts to add to the mix.  Lastly I scribbled and wrote on it with a black ink dip pen.  And there you have it...

Full speed ahead for the next week's Summer of Color challenge!

Music in the studio this week was Sheryl Crow's Wildflower and pandora radio...

Forever in art,  Jessi

Hi Jessi! Great piece! Love the layersssss. I took a closer look and WOW! Alphabet stencils are my favorite. I love layered backgrouds as you already know...I love how you kept the same color theme through out. Not as easy as it looks.

This is so lovely! I love all the layers and I bet this is one of those pieces that look even better in the flesh. I love using dip pens and try to use them wherever I can. Congrats on winning the blue week.

Thank you for your lovely words on my green entry. Drawing over acryics I generally use either a Pilot drawing pen or Sharpie fine liner pen.
