Journal 52- Colour Swatch

I found this lovely image and corresponding colours swatch online, I found the image so inspirational that I decided to incorporate it into my journal page rather than the actual colour swatch

I just love these bright vibrant colour tones, and was able to compliment them with Dylusions ink sprays Pomegranate Seed, Ground Coffee, London blue, Dry Martini, Funky Fuchsia and vibrant turquoise.

The background was created with DecoArt modelling paste through CWS Zinnia, Mini Pointy Circle, Mini Blazonry and That Special Touch- Chicken Wire which reflects some of detail in the image too

The texture was highlighted with Americana Titanium white and Lemonade acrylic, applied by dry brushing

I really enjoyed this challenge, such a great starting point for any project


  1. Stunning background that perfectly compliments the photograph, brilliant!!
