There are two challenges that look at stretching your artistic abilities which I am participating in:
Creative Colour Challenge hosted by Louise Gale
and the GPP Challenge hosted by Michelle Ward.
With the Colour Challenge, a new colour is posted each Sunday. This past week the colour was Sunflower Yellow. Although I love sunflowers, I do not wear or use yellow much. So it was fun to splash away with yellow paint and work with texture as well. Here is my entry for the first week.I hope to use this as a base for more artwork.
I can't wait to see what the next challenge colour will be on Sunday!
The GPP Challenge this month was "Text Messaging" (C#43) , using text, words or phrases to create a collage. I enjoyed this as I love words. I went through several magazines and had lots or words to choose from. At first, I tried to place them randomly but words seem top fit together so there is a bit of working together of the words.
The phrase at the became 2 poems playing off each other!
Using text is a lot of fun and can be the base of a journal page. I aim to photocopy my page, gesso it and build up!
