Arty Girlz challenge # 62 your favourite colours

This weeks challenge over on Arty Girlz is to use your YOUR favourite colour/s on your creation. As always its up to you what style of art work you create as Julie and I hope to encourage all types of crofter's and artists to join in with our challenges. so pop on over there and have a go and join in .

This is mine its an 8x8 canvas board. My favourite colours are purple's and lilac's going in to blues. I used acrylic paint for the background I found an image of wing's on the Internet a while back and traced them on to acetate and cut them out to make a stencil. I had the heart negative already. I used purple acrylic paint over the stencils then used gel pen in black to add depth to the heart and wings. oh and a bit of Gesso here and there

It's not finished yet not sure what I'm gonna do but it just don't feel finished if you know what i mean.


I really do love hearts with wings and would love a Tattoo with a winged heart but we'll see ;-)

The picture isn't doing the colours any justice at all the heart and wings are a lovely deep purple colour but look blueish in the pic.
