Blorange

Blorange... sounds like a cross between a Bond villain and a Dutch beer, but is actually a colour - albeit a made up one!

Confused? You should be. Blame the lovely Tracey Fletcher-King and Jen Maclean - their combined efforts led to the colour challenge mixing blue and orange. So I did. I mixed it on paper, and on my hands which now have a fantasy/sci fi aspect to them - can't quite decide if it's alien or elfin! There's also some on my clothes and a tiny splash on the carpet. In fact, there are so many 'tiny splashes on the carpet' that soon I'll have a whole newly designed floor covering - to match the paint spattered walls..

Anyway, I am unable to show you the result in its entirety due to it being my man's birthday card and I don't want him to see it in advance! I like chopping my art up though - adds to the intrigue!

  4. Blorange came about because I couldn't decide whether blue or orange were my favourite colour... so blorange it is... and I am thrilled it is gracing the man's birthday card... he probably deserves a birthday card if he reads the blog... I could reveal Sinus'next 20 birthday cards and there would be a good chance he wouldn't see them... he only reads them if phantom tells him to and she would keep the escret... have a great evening...xx

  14. Just a snippet to keep us intrigued ;D
    It looks fabulous even if it will now mean either splashing more on the floor to even it out of replacing it!
    I usually have the same alien/elfin fingers when I dabble with my silk paints. There's no way I could be sneaky...I always have the tell tale signs. :-/
    Have a wonderful week!
