YAY!! Summer of Color 4 begins this week! The first year Kristin started this there were only a few of us that participated in the fun but now it the 4th year it looks like more people then ever will be playing along. The challenge is only 6 weeks long so it doesn't consume all your fun time summer hours and it gives you color challenges you might not think of putting together...like the one below.
"The real fun begins! We'll be working with our first - of six - color palettes. Your prompt will include two main colors along with a Smudge, Splash or Pop of a third. As indicated last week, your goal will be to create anything you'd like using the combination of the 2 main colors and 1 accent color I assign. And whether you smudge, splash or have a pop of that third color on your piece is up to you. As always, you can create anything at all that you'd like, with color being the only stipulation. "
All the instructions for playing along can be found on Twinkle, Twinkle, Like a Star blog and you have a whole week to work on your project! Go check it out and join in the fun! In the warm up week Kristin gave all sort of ideas of things you can make so it isn't just painting, or multimedia stuff but jewelry, sewing etc.
I went up to my daughter Heather's house last night for a play night in her studio. I took nothing with and just used what she offered up and oh my gosh she has a lot of things to play with! I am not really into brights like above so I decided to go into the darker shades and hues and made this 11" x 14" piece.
You need to link up with Heather on Facebook at Wayward Gypsy and her Wayward Gypsy Etsy store. Come play with with us and enjoy the challenge! Like I said it is only 6 weeks and and there are a lot of talented people to interact with both on the Twinkle, Twinkle, Like a Star blog and on the Summer of Color Facebook page!
