I am the hostess this week at Our Creative Corner, and I have set a great Challenge;
'Your creation must be a 4-sided regular polygon with all sides equal!
Commonly known as a Square.
And you must only use Analogous colours in your design.'
Your Analogous colours sit next to each other on the colour wheel.
Choose one colour to dominate, a second to support. The third colour is used (along with black, white or grey) as an accent.
Have a play, you will be surprised on the results you achieve.
My primary colour is blue on my canvas.
I apologise at this stage that I do not have a tutorial, I honestly was so involved in designing on the day that it was consigned into oblivion, I will make another canvas at some stage and I will do a tutorial for you.
But for now you will have to read!
The canvas was first prepared with a layer of White Gesso, I know I am suppose to let this dry first before adding more media, but like many artists I am too impatient.
My image has been stamped with Archival ink on a die-cut heart and glued down with multi medium, I added a die-cut border on the top and some lace on the bottom, then it was a case of adding trinkets and metal things, along with the flowers in a design that I found pleasing.
I now grabbed my dylusions inks-Bubblegum Pink, Crushed Grape, and London Blue, masked off the image and spayed away, to finish I sprayed over with Biscotti Perfect Pearls and once dry I painted the whole canvas in Multi Medium Matte.
As you all know by now I love texture, and this Canvas has plenty.
The artist in me has to veer away from cards occasionally.
Have a play with Analogous colours, you do not have to use inks and get all messy, you can use paper or paints.
Hop over to Our Creative Corner Here, just a few minutes of your precious time is all it requires and I promise you will be drooling with what my teamies have created for this Challenge.
Hope I have inspired some to join me this week as I would love to see what you create....Please make my day.
