More mixed media challenge: yellow

It's time for a new More mixed media challenge and this time we are asking you to use yellow. Now our 4th challenge for you is any shades of "Yellow". We would like to see some where on your project a shade of Yellow for this challenge so it could be the main focal colour or just a splash its up to you.

Please click on the link to see the wonderful mixed media creations by the rest of the team and we would love to see your entries there.

I created a journal place using gelli plate prints made with a mix of different acrylic yellow paints with a Clarity stencil with the piece on the right was made by rolling the brayer over the card that was on the gellli plate, thus getting all the different yellows. Stencilled the piece of IndigoBlue Vintage memories mixed media card stack, adding Prima flowers, DCWV chipboard and bows and twine from stash, all mounted on to a piece of embossed card (on reflection, I think it would have been better to have left this off).

It's some time since I used my gelli plate (used the A4 size this time instead of the small square one) and had fun using it once again.
