Just One Colour - AJ


Over at Art Journey this month they are asking for 'just one colour' to be used in our creations.  So I challenged myself to use blues.  I used denim, faded jeans and broken china distress stains for the background.  I used Stazon Hydrangea blue for their trousers, Adirondack Denim for their shirts and Salty Ocean Distress Ink for their heads!!!  


Then I decided to try orange.  I used Dylusion ink sprays, squeezed orange and orange with a splash of mica which is one from the pre-Ranger Dylusion set.  I used a mixture of spiced marmalade and dried marigold distress inks for the middle of the main image.  I went around the outside frame with Stazon pumpkin.  Once stamped I added orange distress stickles to further outline the frame.


Then of course I had to try a green one.  The background is a mixture of shabby shutters, peeled paint, crushed olive and bundled sage distress stains.  The main image is stamped in meadow Adirondack ink.

Boy have you been creating some fab tags recently. Loved the leaf ones and now these! It is so hard to get a project to work only using one colour and you've done it so well three times. Hugs, Buttons x

Blue's so hard (for me) but your blue tag is my favourite of the three.

Neet said...

Love them but especially the blue one - you got such a range of blues in there yet the image still stands out so well.
Was surprised you chose green - not!
Hugs, Neet xx
