Summer of Colour - week 4
Charcoal grey and pale pink were the chosen colours for this week (see button in the sidebar to join in the fun). I have to say I'm not really a pink kind of person unless it's hot pink paired with orange - a previous colour choice for this challenge.
I've found that using the time-lapse camera can make me feel a little pressured in making decisions. I usually work on pages over a couple of days, letting each layer dry and thinking about what comes next. You don't have that luxury with the time-lapse because you can't pause it. So I thought that this time I would pick out some materials to use, limiting myself only to those things.
The things I noticed about this page when it was finished: I didn't use any paint or gesso, I used lots of tape, and there's lots of white space.
Sometimes it's good to restrict yourself. You force yourself to consider options other than the ones you usually reach for. And the results can be surprising.
