Citrus Mixed Media Art Journal

Hey, friends, I hope you all enjoyed your weekend. We are having a cold and fresh challenge for the summer this week at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge - Twisted Citron. It's about all things citrus, neon, and fresh! From oranges to bright fresh color, we want to see how you’ll use citrus with your own twist.

Citrus colors remind me of drinking a glass of cold lemonade or a cup of grapefruit smoothie in the hot summer.

My favorite summer drinks are a reflection of summer itself: bright, fun and refreshing. To create the bright citrus color scheme on this art journal page, I applied different shades of Izink ink on the background. Then I stamped and embossed sentiments on the page.

The cup image was stamped with Tim Holtz Stamp and Memento Black Ink, and it's colored using Sakura Koi watercolor. Instead of iced coffee, it's grapefruit smoothie in the cup.

The flowers are Prima Flower metal embellishments colored using Distress Paints and distressed using a Art Dauber. I pasted the flowers using Tombow Glue.

I added more Tim Holtz metal embellishments and rub-ons to finish off this page. I hope this page inspired you to create something for this week's challenge.

  14. You always have such fun and clever elements with every creation you make! In this one, I especially like how you labeled the drink with, "Peace." So whimsical and thought-provoking at the same time!
