I am taking on a new challenge this summer. It is called "The Summer of Color3! Here is a little excerpt from Kristen's blog to tell you what it is all about. It goes like like this:
"What's that you say?
That's right. This year, the Summer of Color is taking a decidedly different turn. This year, You will help determine the colors we'll be playing with by voting for your favorites on a weekly basis.
How will that work?
Easy. Each week, you'll have the chance to vote for one of 12 different color combinations by taking a poll at the end of each post. Simply pick your favorite and, in majority rules fashion, the highest rated one wins. Come back the following Monday to see the results and get started. As always, you'll work in your preferred mediums - creating anything your little heart desires - with color being the only stipulation.
What do you mean by our "preferred mediums"?
There are so many ways to participate in The Summer of Color. You can create anything you want, as long as it's based on the colors of the week. You may choose to develop a body of work using the same materials each week or mix it up and create something new each time. It's entirely up to you.
What kinds of things will we be seeing?
In the years past, we've seen jewelry to journal pages and everything in between. If you're not sure of what you want to do, check out the following links for inspiration:
Artist Trading Cards
Of course, there may be things you're considering that I haven't covered here. The thing is, if you have an art form you love, go for it. If you've always wanted to try something new, perhaps now's the time."
So if this has sparked your interest, and you would like to participate with us, head on over to Kristen's blog here! I learned about The Summer of Color from Dawn's awesome blog! Thank you so much, Dawn!
Week one of the Summer of Color3, 2013, began this past Monday, 6/10/13. It as been wonderful seeing everyone's interpretation of the color scheme, which is: citron green and turquoise! Such an amazing color combo!
I have been browsing through all of the participants blogs and my head is reeling with inspiration!!! For my very first challenge, I decided to do a scrapbook page with a photo of Anne and my nephew, Owen, taken last year on the 4th of July. I thought that the colors of the photo were perfect for this week's challenge!
So without further ado, here is my layout:
Thank you so much, Kristen, for hosting this challenge. I can't wait to see what the rest of the summer brings!
. . . and thank you so much for stopping by my blog today.
