The JAM prompt for the week was my favorite color. The challenge was saran wrap. This has changed as the years have passed, or maybe as I have gotten older. Currently my favorite color is purple.
I started this page by getting out all my purple paints. I used my gears stencil with some dark purple paint. I was concerned when I was done by how dark the purple was on the page. I decided to use some purple spray ink on the page to try to tone down the gears. I scrunched up saran wrap and let it dry to cause the slight crackle effect. Satisfied by how that looked I, added some diamonds to the page in a pale purple. Then as a final background touch I used my dots stencil with some sand and lavender colored paint.
I decided to add the word purple. I tried purple ink but this blended into the background too much, so I had to redo it with black ink. Not liking how the purple just sat in the center of the page, I added a white flower ribbon to both the top and bottom of the word. I used my stamps and silks acrylic glazes to color in the birds and flowers. As a final touch I used a butterfly punch to punch out some butterflies on purple paper and glued them to the bottom of the page.
