Mixed Media Monday - Fashion

We have a wonderful new guest host on Mixed Media Monday this week - Debbi, another Aussie! Debbi has chosen "fashion" as her challenge to us. In the latest Somerset Studio mag. there is a spread that keeps catching my eye - it's one that uses a colour pallet of aqua, tangerine, berry and black. I simply had to give that colour pallet a try, so I chose the fashion challenge as my opportunity. The piece is done on a canvas board that is approximately 5 x 7 inches, or 12.5 x 18 cm. The background is done in acrylic paints, the word "chic" is done with water soluble crayons and the swirls are rubons. It was a fun challenge, thanks, Debbi!

I love this, great use of the colors and can see the temptation of them. Image is purrrfect for it. Great job, very alluring.

Even though it is not quite Monday here yet (but it is Monday somewhere so had to come,post and play). Such a great theme, could not stay away.

Fabulous piece Diane - I love bright colours as much as I love vintage and this combination has the "wow" factor. A really beautifully balanced design too.
