Color x Two.....

A Colorful Workshop and Color This Quote = one finished project!

Last time I showed you some of the prints I made in Carolyn Dube's A Colorful Workshop: Gelli Printing. Today I'm taking one of those prints and making a Art Journal page for the Color This Quote May Challenge over at Artist's In Blogland. The quote this month is:

"Every act of creation is first an act of destruction."  Pablo Picasso

Here is the Gelli background I did that you saw last time:

 I think this background is looks like a bit of destruction....

 Here is what I did with it for the challenge:


  1. Tremendous page you've created! You've taken a fantastic print and added touches( like the black around her and the circles) that make it phenomenal!

  2. Love this! Great combination of a silhouette and words in circles. :)

  3. love how you took your gelli print and called out some areas and to make a spectacular illustration of that quote!

  4. I so need a gelli plate. I like your word treatment on this page as well, and the pink adds a great punch of colour!

  5. The weathered look of the pages is marvelous that destruction and then the circular letters of life going round and round and creating and this so much. xox

  6. I like all the extra details you added, especially the pink.

  7. Verrrrrrrry cool. Love those words in the circles!

  8. Beautiful, I love how you created the words!

  9. I'm so loving circles these days and I love your word-filled ones.
