I am participating in this colourful challenge, hosted by Kristin Van Valkenburgh of Twinkle Twinkle Like a Star blog. This is her fourth year of hosting the challenge and my first time of taking part. Each week Kristin will give us a colour prompt with which we have to create something. Anything; from painting, to papier mache, to knitting with old carrier bags. Anything goes, so long as we use only the colours in the prompt, and, if we wish, black & white.
The colours this first week are, Aqua Blue & Yellow and a Smudge Splash or Pop of Hot Pink
I went blank. Completely and utterly blank. I love the colour combo. Not a problem with that. My brain just seemed to close down. I know I've got a week for this, but if I leave it, I know I will just feel worse.
Get a grip!!
I got out my sketchbook, my oil pastels and went for it. *Eeek!* What a mess I thought. I was going to scrap it and try to do something 'better'. Something more in line, (yeah right), with the lovelies I had already been looking at, so quickly posted, but so perfect. In my eyes.
Sod this, I thought! I enjoyed scribbling away with the pastel, rubbing my fingers in it and scratching away with a broken gift card to make water, fish, birds & clouds! So what if it's not my idea of 'perfect'!? Just post it and move on!
So here it is.
Until next time, if you'd like to view some colourful loveliness, visit here..............
