"Pink with Envy"
8 x 10 Watercolor Journal Page
Wow . . .
What an incredible Blue week! I'm thrilled with the response we had with our first color prompt and am throughly enjoying the connection and community we're building here. Thank you for your time, enthusiasm and for sharing this colorful journey with me. . .
A little bit about Linking, Commenting & Giveaways:
Thank you for linking your color-specific artwork in the widget below. In order to qualify for the weekly giveaway, you must also leave a comment in the comment section directly below the current post. Starting this week, if you participate in the bonus challenge, you will be able to enter your name twice. The best way for me to get an accurate count for the Random Number Generator (and to save you from having to link more than once) is to take your names from the comment section. With that in mind (and although it goes against my very nature to do it ;), I have deleted any duplicate or additional comments from last week's blue pool in order to get an accurate count. As of this week, (A) please link your work in the widget below so that others can find you, (B) leave one comment if you created a Green piece and (C) leave two comments if you completed the bonus challenge.
If you just found us, please feel free to join in the fun! Don't worry if you missed a week, you can pop in anytime. Also, there's an amazing community of artists gathering on the The Summer of Color Facebook page and in our Flickr pool. Check it out . . .
So who won the Blue Giveaway?
Please email me your address and I'll get it right out to you . . .
Now, on to GREEN week . . .
This week's color challenge is Green. The Bonus! Challenge is to somehow incorporate the color Citron into your piece. Please remember to leave an additional comment should you complete both. I so look forward to seeing what you do!
And what is this week's Giveaway?
An elegant floral picture frame with vintage sheet music, Liquitex acrylic paint in Brilliant Yellow Green, a set of two Moleskine ruled notebooks, Craft Smart polymer clay and a sprinkling of green, iridescent and clear Swarovski crystals and beads.
Okay. Please feel free to link your GREEN work here:

Next week's Bonus! Challenge is to incorporate wax into your piece. Beeswax, candle wax, wax crayon . . . any kinda wax will do . . . Have Fun!

Love your funny painting. Had fun painting with my green, too, it will be fun seeing what everybody else makes, too! Great idea, hugs, Valerie
GREEN was funny! Can't wait to mess with PINK!
Love your journal page. The background looks like broken eggshells, how have you managed that? I like the twist of the pink and also the gold and her expression is perfect.
Congratulations to Jess for winning and to you Kristin for hosting such a great summer party.
I also have incorporated Citrus green in my background.
I adore your watercolor journal page, you paint such gorgeous eyes :)
Now, I'm not usually a 'green' person, but I had a lot of fun playing with green this week! ;)
Looking forward to pink, which should be alot easier as it is one of my fave colours!!
What a lovely piece you created this week! It's fun and colourful and LUSH!
I'm really enjoying this challenge. I've done a lady again this week, and am toying with keeping the theme throughout... Hmm... decisions decisions!
I completely forgot about the bonus challenge - doh!
Having such fun! Adored going through everyone's projects and seeing such diversity of artwork. Pink...I know just what my inspiration is! Thank you Kristin for such a creative challenge!
Gorgeous journal page, Kristin! :) Thanks for the inspirational colors each week. I love pink so this one is gonna be easy. :)
A second comment for citron? On the leafy bits of border at the sides and bottom, the lighter leaves show citron beneath with a wash of green on top.
so lovely kristin...glitter of course and her hair is delicious!!!!i had a ball with green and still in the middle of doing a green water pencil girl...lol...i believe I had citron green in too after googling it...lol...i had a ball visiting everyones blogs, tho some i wasn't sure of as there were no blue arts or links...so...maybe they did the wrong linkups...???wow...pink...mmm...now what can i make thats pink for my house...hee hee hee...have a great week...xxx
citron...citrus...whatever that colour is called...delete if you don't see it in my 3 thingies...xxx
Apolgies - I linked to the wrong blog the first time. It wasn't intentional!
Look at that neck! Fab fun painting - in watercolour at that, one of the hardest mediums in my opinion. I had fun creating my covered box and coordinating card.

Pink is going to be fun :)

Having a ball with your colour choices.

Loved the green challenge..your piece is lovely..I had alot of fun with it....didn't turn out quite as I had planned but...lol. Thanks.. looking forward to pink!!
Here's my green piece, on my blog. Again, I've messed up the links on Mr. Linky, so I've reposted the correct link there. I'll learn how to do this eventually--it's good that I have the whole summer!
I'm pretty sure I have citron in my piece--I think I have just about every shade of green, and I did try for citron too!
fun, fun, fun challenge....next week is pink and do i dare do a pink haired portrait....
Not sure whether I quite managed the Citron.
I had fun with this. I've learned I love working with little bits of paper!
I had a HECKUVA time with green this week. Who knew.
PINK. I love pink.
This should be fun!
I love the humor in your green piece! Mine is up on my blog.
I also managed to get some citron in my birds. Love that color! It's so fresh.
I am leaving a second comment because I added a piece of a picture of a bracelet made of gold, diamonds and citrine!
Love your work Kristin! Your style captivates me! I also love the name of your piece here :D Brilliant!! Have a great week :) Can't wait to get started on *pink*!
This is fun. Thanks! You work is beautiful!
Hello girlfriend!! I would love me some green striking green eye's like that of your painting!!
I LOVE GREEN girl..so this was fab for me.
I added my linky to my art piece.
Thanks for hosting ... and I'd soooooo LOVE a real moleskin..I don't have one and I'd really LOVE one.
I did the bonus challenge as well for color
your friend: Amy
Fun painting! The gold glitter outline is a lovely touch.
My fairy ACEO is still in sketch mode - but I gave her green eyes in honor of this week's challenge. :D
Green is my color and pink belongs to my little Kate. My art will have to be all about Kate.
Love your art work! I posted my Green! Loving all this fun!
Yé....so cute your green girlie...I adore her eyes, and the glitter too...did you use washi tape for her mouth and neck...It is adorable...I like your idea!!!

Oh too cute. Love your green girl page. Ok...pink is going to be fun. Thaks for another fun week. :) Nan
Waving!! I made a citron butterfly on mine!
I've linked to my post that has 2 out of 3 pieces of work on - 3rd is yet to be done.
Love your work. You're very talented and inspiring xx
me again - both pieces of work I've linked to have both green and citron on them xx
My green project is finished. I love green in all shades!
I have also added a bit of citron to my project in the form of buttons.
I loved this week, so many shades of green!
I also added a touch of citron (citrine)on the heart!
Love your journal page, you have a wonderful way of working. Looking forward to pink next week, my favourite colour : )
What a wonderful painting, it would be great for a childrens book or card!!!
I added 2 links, the first(naturally) I did wrong, but the 2nd is correct. I do this a lot lately, need to think more first!
I must admit I struggled with green but I did manage to come up with something! LOL! Thank you for making me work outside of my comfort zone. This WAS a challenge. Can't wait to see what everyone else came up with.
I do believe I managed to sneak in some citron in my piece, as well. :)
Your green girl is GORGEOUS, Kristin! Love the pink cheeks and tape over her mouth, they really pop against the green. Groovy hair too!
I'm really enjoying the Summer of Colour (sorry, Color!) and I'm looking forward to getting started on 'Pink'.
In my green piece the keyhole, background and her undies are citron (although they look rather pale in the photo!).
I love your Green Goddess; love her eyes and hair!!! Gorgeous~ Green and turquoise are my fav colors~
Pink with envy is much more flattering. Have added my entry on your widget. As always couldn't decide what to do, so a little of everything.
Oops! Did I forget to mention the 'citron'in the painting?
Okay, so I totally commented on the wrong one, so sorry! I should pay more attention.
Thank you so much for doing this. I have yet to get my blue posted, but will probably post it this week, maybe with my green. I'm a bit lacking at the moment.
Congrats to the winner of last week's prize! Hooray for you! I am excited to go around and check out new blogs and meet more artsy people.
Have a happy day!
I love your green girl Kristin!! I am looking forward to traveling around to see what other creative things all these lovely ladies have made. So fun!! Ohhh and I love pink - so girly!!
.. I'm really loving this challenge I linked it ..thank you
Kristen, I adore your "Pink with Envy" piece! It's so cute and I just love the glitter! Yay, I won! Thank you so much!!! I will e-mail you shortly with my info.
Many hugs, Jessi xox
Ah yes, there is citron in my piece! Can't wait to start on pink week! Jessi xox
I posted my take on Green!! I LOVED doing this challenge, one of my Fav colors using one of my Fav things!!
I do believe there is Citron in my piece, and actually quite abit (not intentional, just worked that way. Looking forward to PINK, don't use much of that color so should be interesting, never mind the wax!! lol!
My favourite colour is green, I loved this challenge. Thanks for picking this colour so early. Hope you have a chance to see my card.
Now off to comment a second time.
Love the next challenge pink and use wax, hmmmmm
I have also used Citron in my painted houses so hope you can see it, if not click on the pic and a larger version will show you I did use it and the paper has citron and green in it as well.
Happy creating everyone, this is so much fun.
PS love your take on your project Kristin
Kristin, your journal page is gorgeous... I love its whimsical feel...
Have just posted my art journal page...
i'm having a great time with this, Kristin. thank you for accepting poetry.
I love the variety of styles and media that I'm seeing from all these wonderful participants. It's SO inspiring! And next week should be interesting since I rarely do anything in pink......hmmmmm I'll have to think a bit. :)
I love all the variations on the green theme that everyone came up with this week. I love the color green. I enjoy looking at what everyone comes up with even though I don't comment on everyone's posts.
Green is such a soothing color to me and little did I know I would be using it in my Art Journal this week fighting off one of my killer migraines. It was very theraputic.
Looking forward to the pink challenge. I can see a Girl calling my name!!
Love your journal page Kristin...very bright and cheerie!!
I'm loving this challenge - posted my piece in green today - number 65 on the linky
I also used citron on my piece so can enter twice, I'm number 65 on the linky
Love your green girl above...I love the color green....can´t wait to see the pink week,,,the blog will explode:)I also added citron....thanks for a fun challenge.
Here I am again for the Citron addition to my bookmark.........I am number 67.
wanted to capture the forest green in my piece..like this colour challenge
I've had great fun with green and anticipating a challenge next week as I don't do pink!
Oh and I am reasonably sure that one of the shades of green I used will qualify as citron. I hope so anyway.
just joining in this week! what a great challenge!
some citron "happened" as i played with the layers! how fortuitous!
my comments are 92 &93 and my linky is 70...
I'm linky #72. :) This is SO much fun, Kristen!
I added citron to my piece, too :)
I've just linked my art journal piece
and I got citron into this piece too
Enjoyed starting my art journal with Green, although missed out the Citron.
There! I made it this week too! Green just happen to be my favorite color, so this was fun! :-)
And - yes, I believe I managed to get some citron-color in there too! ;-)
Your art is so gorgeous, love it!
HELLO! I love your piece here, but it makes me sad too. I must say, I think your eyes are the best!
So, I loaded up my Green!
added citron for me too!
Finally got my green card finished. i just love this TPS image! One of the pencils that i won from you in the first week seemed like the perfect color of green for this girl and it is about as close to Citron as i was going to get :) I am loving these color challenges!
I'm a little late to the party this week, but still having a great time. Thanks again for a wonderful challenge!
enJOY a lovely weekend,
hi kristin, had a great time last week, did a photo, but this week i'll push my luck a by try a drawing
Morning.. I forgot to say I used citron in mine as well... have a great day....
had a change of mind, i wiil continue to do photography, rather than a drawing, i will try to post it tommorrow
A little late but my green pieces are finally up. I'm having so much fun with these challenges, and excited for pink!
I'm also thinking of keeping to ATCs for all 10 weeks, I forgot how fun working small is!
I'm a little late but I posted my green entry.
I entered my Green themed art journaling. Thanks so much for hosting this fun challenge!
Alrighty! I've finished my GREEN piece. I'd like your feedback on this piece.
Your piece is very cute, I like the, what looks like crayon wrappers, used on her. I finally got my green piece up too! and Thank you for all your kind words and encouragement to me :)
I also included citron in my mixed media piece :)
Finally got my green pc. finished. Better late than not at all.
Ah yes I had citron in my painting too!
I managed to add citron in work but I don't have a clue how am I going to introduce wax in my next bracelet!!
hi kristin, my post is finally up, sorry about the day, thatnks for all the lovely comments
I love your green piece - I really like the caryon labels you used - really creative!
Love the mouth. Your girl makes me smile. Great colors too.
I Have added my green one,really enjoyed making it. Off to think of pink!
Your journal page is delicious! So great!! I bet everyone is having fun, fun, fun with this event. I sure am. It's forcing me to try new ideas and new techniques. I hope by the end of this event I will be slightly more comfortable with acrylics. So far I have made some lovely surprises that I had no idea could be done. Now the test will be if I can duplicate the same effect (ho hum)! Thanks for putting this together for us Kristin *smiles* Norma
Hi Kristin, I am not certain if I am reading things correctly but if so...count this as my bonus challenge (citron) entry for the draw. This would be my second comment, in other words. *smiles* Norma
On to PINK!!!
I had a lot of fun with this piece, this event has been awesome so far and can't wait to attack pink. Off to post on flickr!
I was so excited and rushing, I literally posted in last week's comments! Sorry!! I hope I make it lol
Hi!! I'm late, but my green post is now up!! Just wanted to say hi!!
I made two hand-embroidered tags - one is a horse and the other is a tree that are done in various shades of green. Enjoyed doing these tags...they've been on my "to do" for some time now.
Obsessed with this! So cool!
