This week we are in a celebratory mood on CCG!
Wow, 200 combos that is quite something. A BIG CONGRATS to all of us who make this site what it is!!
And Color Combos Galore is still going strong, ready for another milestone and another!
I chose some photos of Beatrice playing with water on the trampoline. I turned them into black/white as they would clash with the colours otherwise.
I think everything on this is from "October Afternoon" except the Doodlebug letter stickers. They are really timeless and still among my favourite letters, actually!
This weeks combo is a fresh breeze in blue,white and creamsicle (which to me is a yellowy orange)
Beautiful colours, don't you agree?
I did a lot of sewing of different layers this week. i just love the bulky effect it creates. and so easy...-just sew and bend, sew and bend...
The designer challenge this weeks called for drips of varying kinds.
As I explained on CCG my creative process is to take each step as it comes and I workit by intuition.
I very rarely have a masterplan for how I will go.
Today I started by doing the layering then decided where the photos would go. I then went adding my white paint in strokes and drips.
Unfortunately, being spontaneous has its side effects...not always good!
In this case it was not good.
After having done the paint job I decided I wanted a circular element in the lower corner. This was mostly unfortunate because it covered up almost all the panting I had done.
Things like this happen to me all the time, and I believe I am not alone. It can be so frustrating though!
Anyway, I think you can still see some of it in my close ups at least.
I also added some gel drops to act as watersprays from Beatrice's water bottle
I cut out a sun roughly on free hand and sew it to my layout. I rather enjoy the rough look of it.
A little closer look.
Finally another look at my different layers.
That was the reveal for this week.
Keep an eye on the Color Combos site this week. there may be (will be....) surprises and happenings.
You would not want to miss that!
