Challenge #154 - Color Challenge

Rosemary  here and I'm challenging you with a color challenge, open up your

Split Personality

Create using a palette that is either all bright colors or pastels

Ever find that people associate a particular style or color with your creations?  Do you sometimes find yourself in a bit of a color rut? (Yeah me either.  LOL)

Seriously though, I'm kind of a safe bet to use soft, gentle vintage pastels.  It's definitely a favorite for me.  So, for this challenge I'm creating using rich, deep vibrant shades.  Trying to break the mold a wee bit.

My first project is a series of zentangle bookmarks I am making for Art Abandonment, a group I found on Facebook that encourages artists to create and then anonymously leave their work to be found and enjoyed.  So I kicked my zentangles up a notch with color.  Distress colors to be exact.

 A little closer look

My second project to share with you is a tag for my art journal.  I love suns, I must have five stamps of suns  - they make me think warmth and joy.  So why not make a fiery tag for a new season!  We've got resist stamping, tissue tape, ephemera, and dyed ribbon.

So, feel like breaking out of your color rut?  Get out those colors you tend to ignore and have some fun creating with them. Then share your beautiful projects with us here!

Electra here: Rosemary's besautiful tags are so elegant.
Nothing even remotely elegant about mine.
It's a family portrait.


You have until the end of Saturday 20 APRIL to join in with your fabulous creation by making a card for a charity. Add your blog post address to Mr Linky below.
If you would like to join in with a previous challenge we've set (life happens and lateness is absolutely fine, we don't mind a bit) just add your blog post address to Mr Linky below. Please make sure your blog post refers to the previous challenge you are entering so we don't get confused.  
We look forward to visiting you!
