So here are a few spreads I've worked on:
This was for an Inspiration Wednesday lesson from Donna Downey..
I loved the colours that I ended up using: teal, quin. Magenta and yellow ochre, with a little fluorescent magenta thrown in...
Oh man I loved the way this one turned out. It was one of those pages that totally sucked half way through but I persevered and made it into something I was happy with. This was a Documented Life project.
This one turned out totally crazy because I just kept adding layers upon layers, but the abstract thing is very soothing. Not having a thing to draw or make a mistake drawing is relaxing... And for those of us who love to play with colours, this is the perfect medium.
Do you ever fall into a colour combo unconsciously? For me it's the rainbow... It always seems to pop up when I'm throwing colours around.. I think it's because I am too scared to stray from complementary colours so it always ends up mooshing together into a rainbow! Oh well, it's not a bad proble, to have, right?!
This is my newest page. At first there was no red when I called it "done" but then I just wasn't happy... Enter red. Sometimes all a project needs is an introduction of a shocking colour and it suddenly falls into place. I love how colours can do that!
So I'll leave you with a photo of some fireworks. You haven't seen fireworks till you've been to China. From our 9th story apartment we could see our nearby town and all of the towns within a 50 mile radius and there were thousands of people lighting off fireworks. It was breathtaking!
I am so glad we were here to witness it! As they say here in Shanghai: Xin Nian Kaui Le! (Shin neean kwai leh)
A small portion of our view of the horizon.
