Summer of Colo(u)r week 2

This week's ice cream flavour for Summer of Color has been Mint Chocolate Chip.

And here is my journal page:

I tore a piece from an old map which was mostly mint green and stuck it on the page.  I put some Dylusions Melted Chocolate Ink over the top as well as some modelling paste through a Julie Fei-Fan Balzer stencil.   I also used some gesso, some white and some black acrylic paint before stamping with Archival Aquamarine ink.

I feel there's something missing so it's perhaps not finished but I can come back to it any time.

Thanks for stopping by.



  1. Love the feel of this - I love your stencil choice- it is one of my dirtiest stencils because I use it often!

  2. I love maps on journal pages. You did a wonderful job with your page.

  3. Nice page...im sure something will come to you as to what to put on it if need be...xxx

  4. Its turned out great hasnt it - I am sure inspiration will strike you soon and you will get it finished!

  5. REally nice! I might be tempted to take a pencil eraser (a small round one), dip it in chocolate brown paint and place a few dots here and there. I think the size and shape would be right to balance the elements in your design.

  6. That stencil was ideal. Love this.

  7. I love this - the maps really work for me (I used some on my piece this week - they were about the only things in my stash in the right colour for this weeks challenge!). I love your stenciling and use of textures - a beautiful piece of work.

  8. I love all the elements, the map, the stencils, the colors. Beautiful.
