Yep, still talking about paper art and color! I saw this in the Instagram feed of my friend, Meghan. She loves color as much as I do so of course I had to try Year of Colour for myself. In my head, this was going to be much brighter, given the bright colors I use in my paper art. (I’ve heard this from other people too about their own image results.) But of course it takes samples of color from everything in one’s feed – background, non-art objects so it makes sense. It’s just fun – I hope you try it. (And play around with the sliders once you get your image.)
I tend to get a fair number of compliments from customers on my use of color in my paper art. I just wing it and use colors I like (turquoise, lime green are still favorites – can’t believe I’m not sick of them yet, honestly). Turquoise & red is another favorite combination. And yellow, black & gray too.
I know that’s a crappy photo but I love the way this turned out. I often take quickie photos to either see how it looks or to remember color combinations I feel are successful.
I need to stop writing about color and start getting my new paper art assembled and for sale! That’s my goal for this coming week. I can’t wait to show you!
