Summer of colour, blue, blue, green

It must be summer because the lovely creative challenge - Summer of Colour - in underway.  I've enjoyed it in each of the last 4 years, both participating and seeing the range of ways people use the set colours.

Thinking back over past years I realised that the ones I enjoyed the best were when I set myself an overall project which meant that each weekly item was part of a whole.  So I decided to create one finished piece which is divided into 6 parts which I will fill in each week - all digitally.  I created a simple design using a 6 point star so that I have 6 segments to work on.

This week Kristin set our colour palette as 2 blues and 1 green - giving us a free choice of tone etc. The three I chose made me think of fun and movement and airiness so I created this


I will fill in one segment each week and hope that the 2 solid circles will provide a connection across the segments.

I've gotten here late, so all the creative compliments have already been written. However, I will echo those sentiments, because I think this is an excellent way to keep track and record your weekly SOC entries.
