The theme for January is – The blank page and how to face it!
Week 3 – DLP January 17th, 2015
Art Challenge: The Color Wheel
I found I could say things with color and shapes that I couldn’t say any other way . . .
– Georgia O’Keeffe
This prompt was so much fun for me because I LOVE LOVE LOVE COLORS!!! Of course I had a billion more things planned that I didn’t finish because I was playing in my art journal all weekend with colors! My favorite colors are Dylusions ink sprays.
To get started with the prompt I first played with the warm colors…
I had fun stamping Dina Wakley’s new stamp set on the background.
Then I played around with cool colors….
I made so many swatches of color that I decided to create a rainbow of colors separating the warm colors from the cool colors. I just recently learned why it’s not good to mix warm and cool colors at the same time… Because they make mud! You might already know this color concept but if this is new to you…. it’s an awesome revelation! Especially if you are like me and love colors!
Then I decided that I better get down to business and finish my art journal page with the quote so I grabbed one of my favorite stencils, Dyan’s new star stencil and some of the new Dylusions paints.
– Dylusions Paints Bubblegum Pink, Vibrant Turquoise, Crushed Grape
