Fun in the sun...

.... the sun this weekend was too nice to miss but I had some colour ideas I wanted to explore so I took everything I needed outside... I sat in the sun and while the freckles where topping up I painted flowers in my sketchbook - trying out different colour combinations...
Its all fairly simple stuff but I got a lot out of it....

My 'go to' colours for this stamp design are Blood Orange, Haystack & Pumpkin Soup...

.... but I wanted to see what other colour combo's worked...and I cross out the ones that 'don't'..

I LOVE Squid Ink - its like a dark aged lavender - Love it!
... and love these two colours also - purple with orange (Eggplant, Blood Orange, Haystack)!! what's not to love! lol

so there it is - a not-seen-in-public-very-often page out of my sketchbook!  I hope its inspired you to try different colour combinations with the JOFY flower stamps..


  1. Fab peek at your sketchbook, loving those JOFY's! What brand of paints are you using with such lovely fun colours?


  2. Never mind - just answered my own question with a quick search of the PA Fresco paints.


  3. OOh yes!!!Might also try these ones with my Promarkers. Lots of creative time coming up!
