Colour Q

I don't think I've played with Colour Q since early July.  I like that they get their color inspirations from things like catalogs... I get inspired in that way, too.

Here's my tag:

This is the palette and image:

  • The tag is by 7 Gypsies.  I wiped up some excess black and white Liquitex gesso from my mat... actually did two tags because I had overestimated my gesso needs whilst painting a skull!
  • The feather is from The Paper Studio
  • The trim is ever so fun-- I believe it is from a BasicGrey ribbon pack from years ago... like at least five.  It actually is four rows of studs but that was too much, so I snipped off the last row
  • The skeleton is by Tim
  • The ribbon at the top is from my stash.
  • The sentiment was typed with my typewriter and edged with Black Soot and Evergreen Bough DI
Fun and edgy, huh!

  3. At first sight I thought you'd made a collage background of papers, but there's only paint, I don't know how you get them on like this, it's messy but in a cool, orderly way. If that makes sense. Not messy and messed up, lol, believe me I have my share of messed up backgrounds.
