Summer of Color, Week 4: Pink, Apple Green & Dark Green

Hi! Today I'm posting a small canvas I made with the fourth week's palette of the Summer of Color Challenge: Pink, Apple Green and Dark Green. I haven't done canvases a lot but this was really fun! I confess I used some pre-made parts this week. I had started to collage the background long ago and given it some colour, too, but not the final touches. The rabbits, too, I had made earlier. They are chipboard or wood covered with several layers of structure paste, acrylic paints and texture stamped on the not yet dry paste. The flowers are punched with Fiskars Flower Lever Punch (Small).



Moi! Viikon värit Summer of Color -haasteessa ovat pinkki, omenanvihreä ja tummanvihreä. Niistä syntyi kesäinen pieni kanvastaulu, jota oli oikein hauska tehdä! Käytin työssä myös aiemmin aloitettuja osia; kanvastaustan kollaasi olin aloittanut jo paljon aiemmin ja samoin jänöpupuset olivat aiempaa tekoa. Ne on tehty ostetun puu/pahvikuvion päälle rakennepastaa ja akryylimaaleja kerrostamalla ja kosteaan rakennepastaan leimailemalla. Kukat leikkasin Fiskarsin kuvioleikkurilla (pieni kukka).



Here's my inspiration, a little uninvited guest that's been visiting our garden! Photo was taken a few weeks ago. / Tällaista pientä kutsumatonta vierasta vihreyden keskellä muistelin, kun tätä taulua tein!

  3. Awww so sweet. Lovely 3d elements and such a strong crisp green. That little bunny hiding in the garden is so cute. Thanks salla for all your wonderful comments recently. Btw I get my citrosolv through ebay. I can't find it locally so maybe its worth having a look.
