Ink play with color insperation from Hacking the Color Wheel #hackingthecolorwheel

I hope each of you had a wonderful 4th of July! I spent my day working on a “mood” color swatch journal.  I actually made the journal. I have not put the cover on it yet. But, I have the pages bound together. And journal a little.  I am taking an art journaling class that is all about the Color Wheel. The class has been lots of fun! And I am learning so much. #hackingthecolorwheel. Today’s card is the result of my first page color combination in the journal.  This color combination is from a magazine page the teacher was using.  Hacking the Color Wheel is tought by Kiala Girehand and a whole host of other artist. This lesson was taught by Sherry Canino.  You can check out class info at Kiale Girehand 

Color inspiration in art journal

  • I love how combining ink colors we can make new shades that blend with existing colors
  • I’m not a big muted color fan. But, the green grey created by mixing smoky slate and crushed curry
  • Colors can create a certain mood. The magazine page that this combination was pulled from was a yoga pose in front of mountains. With splashes of bright color. The mood energizing..

  • The card base is ink smeared on a block with very little water. Then sliding the block across watercolor paper to create a textured pattern.
  • I cut off most of the Smoky Slate. But, you get a few hints of it in the green created when it mixed with Crushed Curry
  • The Berry Burst stands out as the star of the show!!!!
  • this card is 5 1/2 by 5 1/2. (cut paper so that it is 11 by 5 1/2 and then score at 5 1/2 inches on the 11 inch side) The berry burst layer is 5 by 5. And the inked layer is 1/8th inch less
  • I adore using the Just add Text stamp set!  It is perfect for all the beautiful backgrounds you make!!!
