Daisy Yellow.

I am having a lot of fun playing along with the prompts posted by Tammy Garcia of Daisy Yellow.  I like doing mixed media but I find I need prompts to get me started. 

Tammy hosts lots of projects throughout the year and earlier I participaded in her Index Card a Day project.  Great Fun. This is an annual event with a huge following.

She also had Daily Paper Prompts and the one I am currently playing is Fun Colour Challenge  where each week she posts a list of colours and a list of prompts.  You may do as many or few as you like and this year we are doing them ATC size. And I am mounting them into a accordion book.

Week 1 I chose to do Citron / Forest, Vermillion / Doodle, Lemon / Flip Flops. and Peach / Album Cover. For backgrounds I chose to use Neocolor lls.

Week 2 I chose to do Tangerine / Quote, Lavender / Torn Paper, Charcoal / Tulip, Sky / Waves.  For backgrounds I used glass bead medium mixed with acrylic paint.

This is a project running currently over a number of weeks.  I am doing more with Daisy Yellow to the extent that I am battling to keep up with two other projects I took on this year namely Journal 52 and Documented Life Project.

Thanks for looking :)

Glass Beads Medium.

Ooh yummy!  Playing with glass beads.  Two lots of backgrounds for ATCs.  The large on will be a set of 4 I am doing for a Halloween swap for Willowing.  The smaller pieces are for Week 2 of the Fun Colour Challenge at Daisy Yellow.  I also had to mix the colours for this as I didn't have them....hope they are close.  They are Tangerine, Sky, Lavender and Charcoal.  Now to the next step.
