I joined a challenge a few weeks late, called The Summer of Color 2013. Check it out here:
Each week, participants vote for the color combination to work with for the next week. For week 3 it was purple and lime green, so I used my wild iris photo here:
Not really lime green….but close enough I figured.
Week 4 was pale pink and charcoal grey so I raided my fabric stash to make this little 5″ by 5″ collage:
My inspiration for this collage was for a pincushion from but since I use a magnetic pin cushion, I didn’t think I would ever make this(though it is so cute as a pincushion). You can get the pincushion tutorial here: http://ellisonlane.blogspot.ca/2011/05/scrappy-pincushion-tutorial-lapel-stick.html
It was so much fun doing this collage that I am going to go back and do weeks 1(citron green and turquoise) and 2(orange and hot pink). It will be interesting to see if I can find these colours. Maybe I will have to do some gelli-printing on fabric!!! Plus I want to redo week 3(purple and lime green). Not sure what I will do with them, nor am I sure if they will all be rectangles….maybe circles, spirals…….we shall see.
Actually a gelli print of mine that I did awhile ago could fit week 2, although it is a very different format from the fabric collage. I was playing with a mask of Stewie, and I should go back and work on this print some more:
