Summer of Color 2: Week 5 Wild 'N Reckless


"Wild 'N Reckless" (sherbet below)
made me think of the "organized chaos"
that frequents my thoughts and my piles at home.


So, that inspired crazy inks for the background,
used with stencils I love,
and some washi tapes.


Then, I used a favorite contemplative face stamp
with Staz-On black ink.


Here's a close-up of the Chaotic writing:


I had to share with you my Passion Plant, below, too!

Have a wonderful day!
And thanks again to Kristin from Twinkle, Twinkle
for the Ice Cream Inspiration~
See many more here.

by life around you

Kathy, I love the background. That turquoise is one of my favorite colors in the world.

Introverted Art said...

I am sorry, my computer froze and I guess I got "push button happy" ;-)

Createology said...

These are my colors. Your page turned out spectacular. I do not know passion plant however it is beautiful. Now we need some ice cream...Summer Smiles.

Jenny said...

Oh Kathy... your page is stunning... I love that your beautiful stencil became the hair of your lovely lady... and I love that you then wrote within it... just gorgeous... and your Passion Plant is divine...

Hugs

Am I right, that you have used spray inks for your background? Mine was actually made using distress inkpads and cut'n'dry as I haven't even tried my spray inks yet (too scared!!) You have lovely stencil work for the chaotic wording to follow and the doodling is great too. Never seen any Washi tape in real life and am getting more and more curious. Reminds me of the time I didn't know what Vellum was so just ordered some on-line to find out - LOL - BJ

denthe said...

I love that background! Are that elastic bands? The doodling is great too. Beautiful page!

Jane said...

This is so fantastic! I love the colors and the words weaving around everything... AWESOME!!

jgr said...

Beautiful!! I love how you made the pages look both wild and subtle-very cool!

Introverted Art said...

Kathy, your words were so true. As a Capricorn I too am very realistic about everything, my hubby says I am a pessimist ;-) I feel I am going through the struggle you last year, you love what you do but everything else is too much

Sabrina said...

I love your inks, I've never tried that before but I'm loving the effect. I also like how you added the tangle to create the negative space of the cloud. I have a lot of mental chaos, but I don't think I can call mine "controlled"! Beautiful piece!

AnnieC said...

I love this - just the kind of thing I aspire to but it never comes out this way! Annie :)

Joanna said...

This is a beautiful page - the colours work so well here, and I like how you've used the sprays, masks and tape. Lovely.

Shahrul Niza said...

Gorgeous misting & stencil artwork, Kathy!. LOVE the doodling around her hair and the washi tapes are so pretty too. Hugs.

Lynn Fisher said...

Wonderful job with the journal page and your interpretion of the colors!
Beautiful flower as well...I hope it has cooled down a bit there?

Tracey Fletcher King said...

Passionfruit flowers are just gorgeous aren't they... I love them almost as much as I love the fruit... and your page which is fabulous... you do really beautiful work...xx

DancingMooney ♥ said...

Organized chaos, I can so relate! I love your piece, and I love the color inspiration from the sherbert too, it's gorgeous!!

Terri Neggers said...

It's so soft and dreamy, great use of the colors, with the contrast of the black. Love it!

cat @ sea.sky.stone. said...

Beautiful! And I'm jealous that *your* chaos is organized ;)

Carolyn Dube said...

Me too! Plenty of chaos in my head! I love how you built this piece up. Your drawings on the edges and the words just pull it together so nicely!!!

sugar Creek said...

OOh love it!

Tracy said...

I like the way you made the writing follow the pattern of the inks. Lovely subtle colours.
