Arty Girlz weekly challenge #57 Blue & orange colour combo

The challenge for this week on Arty Girlz is to use the colour combo blue and orange.



I made a mixed media piece on a canvas board.

I painted the background blue added text from an old book which i painted orange and tore around the edges to this i added the image of BOB. then with the left over pieces of text i added that to the bottom. stamped the word Paris and Eiffel tower (stamps are from katzel krafts) when everything was stuck into place I used and old credit card dripped in white paint to make the white lines then painted a piece of bubble wrap white and pressed that into the surface. lastly I melted a blue waxed crayon and dripped spots randomly all over. Its a bit different and random just like me LOL.

I loved the contrast in shades of orange and blue this morning on the challenge site. You used the deeper shades and it changed the mood of the piece dramatically. Very powerful.
