Sock Monkey














The color combination today was very difficult for me, Brilliant Blue, Pumpkin Pie, and Garden Green. Truly 3 colors I almost never use, particularly the Brilliant Blue. These colors were in the retired Jersey Shore paper so I went with that as my starting point to make it a little easier.
The monkey was colored in the Pumpkin Pie with aquapainter and ink pad and then paper pieced and cut out. I also used the Bold Brights buttons which will be retiring at the end of this catalog and some linen thread. Top Note die used for main image panel.

Great job with a difficult color challenge, Joanne. That paper was an excellent choice to keep the blue toned down.

How neat that you had patterned paper already with those colors in it. And that you were able to combine the color challenge with the Mojo challenge.

Very cute! I love all the little dots around the top note. I never thought of putting a strip panel ove the top note - great idea!
