Happy Saturday!

Thought I would share the finished Wild and Reckless journal pages for the Summer of Color Challenge last week...yes I am a week behind but I am plodding along "gittin er done!"  Usually the Blue Collar Comedy show drives me nuts but for some reason that phrase has stuck with me. 

Remember this picture from my desk on Wednesday?  It was my journal pages that I had sprayed with Dylusions spray inks.  OMG! I love the saturated color you get out of those little bottles and I love the way the color sprays out!

I love these colors!  I decided though that they were not melding together enough to suit me so I spritz with the minimister both pages and it was like magic how they ran together and blended!

Once the pages had dried a bit I pulled out the stencils, stamps, and the Archival black ink and went to town.  I also used some of the Brilliance pigment and the Stampin'Up! ink pads in colors that matched up with the Dylusions sprays and used the blending tool to stencil on the pages.  The colors being so saturated and dark needed lightening up so I used the Tim Holtz paper tapes, a little bling and Ideology to make it pop. 

What do you think?  Like the colors? 

The last weeks colors for Summer of Color are simple...Watermelon Ice.

 I am seeing summer!  Stay tuned another work in progress!


  1. Wow Vickie, your journal pages look awesome, the colors blended so pretty, I bet you loved watching that happen! I know I do, lol waving hi from the hills of North Carolina :)
