That said, on to Gemma's art journal.... Her colors of choice were purples with splashes of magenta, orange and lime. And I will apologize in advance for the color quality of my pictures- my deep blue-violets show as blues here...and my yellow orange that shades to red orange with a smidge of salmon- just looks yellow. For the lime, I created a mist (invisible here ;)) in the distance and also used it for lettering.....ah well, I was in a hurry to get it in the post and didn't check my pictures until after it had been sent on it's way. At least you can get an idea of what it looks like!
I wanted to create a magical, almost mysterious quality, so of course; I had to have misty, moonlit woods. And when there's a chance of falling stars, you MUST carry an umbrella- right? I also played with her skirt to give a suggestion of tree branches, not for any real reason other than it felt like the right thing to do.....it really doesn't show here, but the "with a chance of stars" is outlined with orange
and yellow oranges, giving a doubled up effect.re-checking, I found that it belongs to Sarah Williams.
So there you have it, my spread for Gemma's beautiful book- I hope she likes it!
