A new journal - using Lutrador

Today I worked some more with Lutrador which has some wonderful qualities. The upper photo shows the underlying fabric base which peeps through the Lutrador in the most wonderful way. The lower photo shows painted and stamped Lutrador applied to the base of a journal cover.

Triad Color Scheme using Water Soluble Wax Pastels

Happily, I completed a Fast Friday Fabric Challenge in less than a week. This month's color challenge was to use a triadic color scheme -green, purple, orange. The composition challenge was to use pattern and/or texture - grid pattern created by the black outlined blocks and alternating horizontal and vertical strokes of the watersoluble wax pastels and quilting of the horizontal grids and the flower.
This is not a color scheme or a style I would typically use. Fun is the right word to describe its creation.
