ARTchix Weekly Challenge 7/7/09 ~ play with pink & blue

Note on July 9 - These twinchies were chosen as one of Helga's favorites for this challenge and I have won the new Chixies Art Blast Collection! Thanks so much, Helga!
For Helga's weekly challenge on her blog I played with the colors pink & blue! Amazingly, in the monthly color combo I participate in with 4 friends, we have yet to work with this particular combination . . .

I decided to make 'Twinchies', which are 2"x 2" squares, as I already had some watercolor cards cut in that size . . .

I used various words (fortunes) and images from the ARTchix Imagine collage sheet, a sticker from the Chixies True Colors Sticker collection (spoil me muse -i love art) and wonderful words that I love from the Her Words collage sheet. I painted the watercolor squares first with Twinkling H2Os water colors in watery shades of pink & blue, added a bit of blue checked scrapbook paper and finished them all with a blue glitter pen. This was just what I needed to do today. Thanks for the challenge, Helga!

  2. That is how I always start, Cindy . . . by getting out a bunch of different things on the theme! Then I just dive in and try things out. I am sure you will have something cool put together before long : ^ ) lenna
