I love this month's challenge! It's all about COLOR, specifically the colors below:
As always, I didn't really know where I would go with this challenge, but I finally decided upon an abstract piece of work.
|Laying out the collage papers...they aren't glued down just yet.|
After everything was dry, I added color with Neocolor II watercolor crayons, acrylic paints, and Silks acrylic glaze. As you can see, I got quite carried away with color! I started with the original colors from the inspiration board, but then kept adding and changing each layer. It's true, I confess, I am a color addict.

Did I mention that I got a little carried away with color?
At first, I was thinking, "DISASTER!" Then I remembered that art is a journey and a learning experience. There are no mistakes, right?! (play, play, play!) I continued to add and and take away colors. In the end, when I was happy with where it had gone, I added details with Sharpie and Posca pens.
|The final project will be displayed in a cute case I found at a local store.|
I've been using my iPhone to take all the photos I post on the blog, but recently have been thinking about using my Cannon Rebel for higher quality photos. I'm learning some new settings and hope to start using it soon!
