Color Challenge

I recently ran across a few challenge sites, and I have been very inspired to play along with some of them! Honestly though, at first I didn't know if they would "let" me play since I'm not really a card maker. BUT, then I saw this amazing artist/crafter Cupcake's Creations participate in a few, with her art journal pages, and she inspired me to take the plunge and jump in!

So, here's the challenge at The Playdate Cafe for this week:

And here's my take on it (an art journal page)

In the past, I have never really started an art journal page with a specific color scheme in mind, but I LOVE how this turned out so I know I will be doing more in the future.

Products used include all sorts of paint, gesso, stencils, sprays,stamps, etc. My favorite stencil on this page, the hexagons, are actually the remnants from punching out game pieces for The Settlers of Catan. Oh how I love my husband's (and mine) pack-rat tendencies sometimes!

You are always welcome to make anything crafty to enter in our challenge!

What a cool collage/mixed media page you've made. And I like your upcycling of those game pieces!

Thanks for playing with us at The Play Date Cafe!
