These pages are working with Lesson 8, color. Elizabeth at Altered Book Lover is our guide through this process and she wrote an amazingly complete post about color, it's uses, terminology, etc. The homework was to create a color wheel using cut magazine pages and to make at least one page in a color scheme: analogous, complementary, etc. Here's what I created:
I chose an analogous scheme of green, blue, purple (side by side on the color wheel).
Toned it down a bit with gesso and wiped it down a bit.
Added drips, spritzes, and my quote which says: "Live for love, color, surprise. Live for a good laugh, a great kiss, the joy of it all. Live for warmth, for endless sparkle, for jewelry that sings. Live for fun. Live to give." - You can also see my "color wheel" tag hanging out the side .... I added it to the color wheel page and it sticks out like a tab from the side of the book.
Finally, another page which harkens back to an earlier lesson on theory - line, shape, etc....there's a lot going on with this page, but strangely, I kind of like it.
I added in a pretty floral post card I received.
These scribble pages are not my faves, but .... "An idea is a point of departure and no more. As soon as you elaborate it, it becomes transformed by thought." Picasso; and a Turkish proverb: Having two ears and one tongue, we should listen twice as much as we speak. Hmmm. I should maybe heed that one more :)
So that catches you up with most of the work in my AB so far. I'll be posting this to Elizabeth's site and if you have any interest at all in AB, her free tutorials are just amazing - thorough and filled with "what works for me" information. Since this is my first effort, I'm finding her hand holding and detailed info very helpful.
