DLP Week 4

This week's DLP challenge was using Writing as a back ground and a journal prompt of 'Words with Friends'. Several ides drifted through my mind but none really stuck and then this song came into my mind and I decided that these words were all I needed.
I used my gelatos on a gessoed page for the background. They didn't blend quite as well as I would have wanted and I found writing on them really difficult.
For the white lines I used my white paint pen and then used sharpies to make the dots.
For the border I cut strips form a piece of paper.
I'll leave you to work out who my best friend is.

Week 3

This week's DLP challenge was right up my street with the prompt of 'colour wheel'.   I love colour.  I had a sheet of wrapping paper which was covered in brightly coloured jelly beans and immediately stuck it onto my page.  Trying to find somthing to put on it just didn't work so I covered it over with a piece of black material.  The bean pattern just showed through to give it some depth but not enough to detract from the black.
Using black ink I then stamped and embossed hearts onto brightly coloured paper.  Cut them out and made them into a flower.  An old fridge magnet sitting on my desk described just how colour makes me feel so it was stuck in the middle of the flower.
I then cut black borders and backed them with the same paper I had stamped the hearts onto.  For my wording I used acrylic paint on some grungeboard letters and then made dots around the edge using my white paint pen.
