HELLO WEEK 2 of SOC!! I was so excited about the new colors for this second week over at http://twinkletwinklelikeastar.blogspot.com/ hosted by the very sweet and awesome Kristin. This challenge is bringing me back to painting, dreaming of colors and playing with colors wherever I go now. At the same time though my creative mojo was also overwhelmed and wanting to make the perfect thing with these colors. My goal is to make 3 cards each week and no matter what I tried they weren't working out. So I decided to play around in a different way and using what's close to me... my camera. I'm going to walk you thru some color inspiration I found in my scrap space and around my house and then finally to what I was able to make. This might be what I do every week just to make this more fun, while doing this I even found things for last weeks colors but didn't add them.
I forgot to mention the colors even though you could guess from the first picture. The most voted for colors this week are ORANGE & HOT PINK!! Don't they look so yummy together!!
Now I was ready to play again and made a couple things in no time at all. Didn't realize how many things I have in these colors around the house. I must say that orange is my preference over pink but together they make me happy. Our full bath is actually red/orange/pink and is a mess right now so I couldn't get any pictures or at a good angle to show you all these colors but it's bright and happy in there. First thing I did was throw some paint on paper and added some doodles with sharpies. My plan is to cut them up into hearts or flowers later on, it was fun just to play and paint with them.
I made a collage with all the papers in these colors, have been doing this a lot lately and enjoy them.
I knew I wanted circles on a card so that's what I did
I love this one, messy and fun
Thanks Kristin for another inspired week in colors, can't wait to see what next week's colors will be. I want to play with these more and try adding in some brown to the mix. While out at the mall there was orange everywhere and even two purses in the colors from last week and this week's. So glad to have some blog friends jumping in with this challenge and the wonderful community there sharing their work. It's been fun scrolling thru and seeing what everyone comes up with.
