Summer of Colour and a grey rainbow

A change from the bright pairs chosen so far on Summer of Colour with this week’s winning pair

sc-4

and I’d been reminded of the brain exercise where you have to read the word green or yellow but it is very hard to read the word rather than say the colour that has been used.

and I wanted to use a wordle on a piece so I had a good play and came us with 3 variants, using the rainbow song.

sc-4-final-3

and also added lyrics for ‘over the rainbow’

sc-4-final-1

and one of my own wordart but using the wordle norm that a word is bigger the more often it occurs

sc-4-final-2

looking forward to seeing the wonderful range of work that others create with this pairing.  And trying to remove a visual version of an earworm from my brain – as soon as I saw grey and pink I thought of the gallah parrots in Australia and now I can’t shake the image.

These are great Helena I have been trying to work with words but not having much luck. I have been felting for this weeks prompt. I don't think I'll get it posted for a few days. I need more days, or another blog or commit to less!!!

Great word compositions. My first career was as a graphic designer in a publishing company (many years ago) These look like super book covers.
