A Bit of Zing

I've been trying to get a bit more colourful in my art which is why I invested in some of the more zingy colours of fresco's.. I tend to gravitate toward colours I like and am comfortable with like browns and blues so seeing Michelle's bright journal page I decided to do one of my own.
I also wanted to play with my new JoFy stamps..
I like the flower concept but wanted to see what other ways I could use the stamps.
I did a bit of paint scraping, I bit of spraying through a stencil and then the stamping.
I'm not totally convinced I like the colour choice of 'zesty zing' 'smoked paprika' and 'baltic blue' but hay ho it's a learning curve.
I'm sneaking this piece in last minute for the PA Challenge.

I love the vivid colours, and I think they zing off each other beautifully... the circle motif is really cool too!

Nicky I love these colours together, and I really like the way you have interpreted the stamps. Me having a science geeky side it reminds me about chemistry compounds. I think it's marvellous. Michelle x
