Today I am sharing with you my second to last colour in the colour blast 2017 series. You can see the rest here!

Color Blast 2017:

Julia - Orange
Vanessa - Grey
Lauren Brown - Green
Lauren Blood - Purple
Moriah - Crimson
Sarah - Mint
Riet - Yellow

This is the purple journal, belonging to and started by Lauren. Purple is one of my favourite colours, I often have purple hair and find myself attracted to many purple things so I was happy to work solely with the colour.


A deceleration of my love for purple - i think it is probably my aura colour. That or some sort of berry red... 


My ink splatter on the left


I played on this fun circle cut out using my tombows and paint chips from Valspar


Garden vines



Not sure who did this woman - I think maybe Sarah? But I added her pink lips, hair and expressive lines


Another Valspar paint chip addition! This time paired with collaged scraps and felt tips shapes


Felt tips and Ink stripes (learn more patterns and techniques like this in my class!)


A collection of those same scraps.

Purple is now in London with Lauren Pearl for it's final pages to be made!

COLOR BLAST | PURPLE

This is our last week in the season of fairy tales! 

This has been such a fun 6 week theme, I'm sad to see it go... but I do have a book to finish so I'll probably keep working away in the fairy tale world in my own time
-



I love him
- label maker, posca pens, collage, washi tape, ink

The attraction you feel to the things that are bad for you (wolves)



Blur

These birds popped up in every page this week. I like their omen like feeling; they're signalling that it's time for our fairy tale to end



Ravens
- collage, ink, posca pens

Change is coming, the crown isn't safe



Daydream
- collage, ink, pen, posca pen

Hiding behind red apples


I am golden

The raw need from Cinderella - that slipper is mine! 



Cut the queens throat

SUMMER COLLAB JOURNALS | SHAPES + STRIPES

I have had a bit of a busy week but managed to create these pages in a slither of time. 
Sometimes rushed pages are the best - and these didn't disappoint! 


Made You Look
- collage, washi tape, gold ink

The poison apple is given by sleeping beauty rather than received


Diamonds and Toads
- collage, pen

Exploring your own dark side and inner big bad wolf


Home

Playing with cut pages and new perspectives in the book. This is very fairy tale and something I would like to become braver with! Vanessa shared a tutorial on the Get Messy blog about cut in's for this season specifically so next week could be the time to try it properly. 

My witch is coming into her own here.. she's not as evil as you think; just after Red Riding's Hood's heart



The Tree
- collage, embroidery, pen

My fox always shows up whenever there are woods


Next week is our last official week exploring fairy tales, but I feel it's going to be hard for me to let this season go, I've really loved it so.
