This weeks colour challenge is Raspberry Red which immediately brings Prince's "Raspberry Beret" to mind...brilliant song! So it seemed fitting to use my found treasure from the beach- a tattered old lid. (Prince's "beret looks like it comes from the second hand store....can you see the connection?!!)
I did struggle this week for inspiration even once my starting object was found...but this accordion book kind of metamorphosized as I went step by step with what I felt the urge to do! Surprisingly enough I ended up using water colours over a glaze sakuri pen, which i have never experimented with before but always fancied. Water colours are my least favourite medium probably because I have no idea how to use them and therefore they scare me! So I give a pat on my back for trying something new out and a thanks to this Creative Colour Challenge for not only urging me to create when i don't feel inspired but for facilitating the use of new things/techniques/experiments!
