Channeling Color This Week!

This is my Paper:08 this week! Oh man...this is the quickest I've ever completed one. THE DAY OF! We were supposed to channel color and describe our relationship with color. Perhaps photograph the colors in our day and life. My take on it was to choose my most dominant and powerful color in my work. Red! Which also happens to be my favorite color as well. I'm super extra proud of this one because I'm not normally into the raw repitition of ephemera...but i did it! I love trying to things!







(paper Christmas ribbon, magazine cut outs, Make It Possible Hobby Lobby glitter letters and backing, transparent scrapbook layover, scrap pack salmon paper, generic string tags, Target background paper, JoAnn's ruby jewels, Marcella heart sticker, Christmas bow, vintage button, pink rick rack, metallic stars, and date stamp)
















I did these beauties over the weekend with Rachel! They belong to my ever-growing altered book. The love page was originally supposed to be my egyptian page, but it looked more inviting than looming so i added hearts and a love note form my boyfriend. :)


The blue page is made by sanding an image of the shoes and crayon and folding the page over to make a triangle. I like this just because its different.



(dye cut images, magazine words, joAnn's sticker words, cut outs from an old dictionary, acrylic paints, flowers from old mystery scrapbook paper.)

Red is my favorite color too! I love your pages, esp. the love page with the little note. I need to learn how to do collage -- your work is beautiful!

Kristi said...

BTW, how did you get the gold finish look on the love page?

Hey kristi! I really hope you look back on this comment page because I tried to comment back on your page, but your blog site address is not listed on your profile! Oh no! (And i really wanted to check out your blog too :() But anyway The gold finish on the love page is actually Gold Paint! I bought it at Wal-Mart for like $1! Its just acrylic paint from the craft aisle that's metallic! They have silver and bronze too. Basically i just poured a tiny bit on a paper plate, then crinkled up a page from a magazine and dabbed it all over the page to give it a gold leafing look. I think it really does the trick! Let me know if you see this and what your blog address is!

Hey -
Thanks for the info on the gold metallic paint -- I'm off to WalMart in the morning! I've got to fiddle with the profile -- not sure why it's not listing my blog address. Here it is: www.kristilwb.blogspot.com. Thanks for commenting!
