Summer of Color Week #2

Well it was a lazy summer's day and I was listening to some Taj Mahal... and finally got my entry finished for the Summer of Color Week #2 challenge! I could probably do a lot more doodling and maybe I will later but I wanted to get this one in before I go to my art play day tomorrow in Fremont. More about that after it happens, but it promises to be another fun day in Fremont making paste papers this time!

So remember, this week's challenge was to use orange and hot pink. I already showed you my gelli prints from the other morning. Next I cut a bunch of circles from some of the prints on deli paper, stamped letters on other parts of the gelli prints, and glued them all down. Then I did a bit of doodling around everything and added a little more color. I didn't want to get off the color palette too much this time so I limited my additional colors to mostly pinks and oranges. I love the turquoise background, which is color over another collaged page that wasn't going where I wanted it to go.

  12. Looks great here and even better in person! The turq background really works with those colors and tones the whole thing down a bit. Very nice.
