I haven't worked in my journal in awhile and it's been buggin' me! I had this taped grid for quite awhile but no inspiration about how to use it. Then I ran across an interesting site today: GPP Street Team by Michelle Ward. She offers a challenge per month (I can do that, right?). This month was to take a word, concept, song title, book title, whatever, as your inspiration and create the color that fits that word.
OMG - how fun is that?! I look over to my paint table and here's this grid sitting there, waiting for inspiration - I think I just found it! Immediately I had the first few words and even knew the basic color they evoked for me. I built from there and as I thought about it, I liked the progression of one color way blending into the next. I absolutely love watercolor for this easy blending/melding of color!
So here's my first offering in the challenges offered by Michelle. Feel free to join in - she gives you a whole month to develop and post your idea - but I was so inspired I finished mine in a couple hours! Check in on Sept 1 for the next challenge.
