Painting dreams.....Yellow!

Painting dreams, well in this case exploring the colour yellow.
This is a mixed media page for the current  theme at ....
where Rike is hosting this month;s theme....... The Colour Yellow

The page began with torn book papers, washi tape and some Jane Davenport tissue images.
Sprinkles of brusho powders, some splats , there is  even a bit of random stamping , followed by some yellow water colour paint.   The words were computer generated.

Thank you for calling in to see what I have been creating,
 I hope you all have a good day.


  1. Cool page Yvonne - warm in colour though :)
    Love it - and the JD artsy lady tissue paper is great.
    Looks like its going to be a windy weekend (storm Erik?? ) keep warm and safe.

  4. You're scaring me, Yvonne - really getting into the yellow thing, lol! This is a wonderful page - lots of interest and the main images beautifully brought to the forefront with the circles around them. Beautiful.

  5. This just looks FANTASTIC dear Yvonne!
    I recognized that yellow is the new fashion colour for spring as I was shopping with my daughter recently. It would never look good on me. Your ladies look fantastic in yellow!!!

    Happy weekend and thank you very much for joining AJJ again! You
    know how much your wonderful support is appreciated!

    Big hugs, Susi

  6. Your page is gorgeous! I like the different shades of yellow and how you got the JD ladies into the foreground with these cool circles! And I like the quote!
    Thank you for linking this wonderful piece to AJJ!
    Wish you a happy weekend! Rike x

  7. Yes, I too was admiring the way the ladies are brought together in the circles. Nice work with all the yellow, in fact all yellow with black, that's so effective.

  8. This is gorgeous, Yvonne! I love it. Eileen xx

  9. This is really a gorgeous journal page, Yvonne. I love the sketchy ladies with the frame and the burst of yellow. This page just makes me happy!

  10. Bright and light...I am starting a journal book so hope they turn out as nice as this one.xx

  11. I really LIKE that background, Yvonne. I like how you layered the book pages over each other so none could really be read. Very clever. I also liked the yellow checkered strips you added. But the end result was simply stunning. This is a genuine beauty. Thanks for once again supporting Art Journal Journey by sharing your art with us,

  12. A fantastic page Yvonne, I love the composition and the way you have used the yellow xxx

  13. A beautiful display Yvonne, love that warm yellow washi and with Jane's girls it give the whole journal page such zest.
    Thank you for your kind words yesterday they mean a lot *Thank YOU*
    Wishing you a wonderful weekend of creativity.
    Hugs Tracey x

  14. I like how you used these abstract ladies. They looks great in the frame and that yellow tape makes a really great pop of color! perfect. Hope you have a great weekend Yvonne. Hugs-Erika

  15. Fabulous page Yvonne, great to see how you built it up and the end result looks fantastic! Wonderful use of yellow also, sunny but not too over powering, - fabulous!!!

  16. Another sunny beauty of a page! Wow, you must get a better selection of JD stuff over there than we do. Or else everything is always sold out here. I did manage to get a JD stamp of a girl with flowing hair and a unicorn die set. Can't wait to use that one. It will be my attempt at whimsical! xoxo

  17. What a so gorgeous Art journal page Yvonne !! Love how you have created it, with the beautiful washi tape, tissu and book page, then the colours, the layers, every detail is magnifique !! as always I adore your art.
    I wish you a very nice afternoon, and send you big hugs,

  18. Oh My! This is beautiful - I think I have to give in to some JD tissue!! Hugs, Chrisx
