Summer of colour – pink, pink, orange

I’m enjoying Kristin’s colour palette approach this year where she gives us free range to choose the exact tone of the specified colours – this week we have to pick 2 pinks and an orange and I’ve enjoyed seeing how some people go for the hot versions and others have a softer range.

I went with 2 hot and one soft for my new star segment and was thinking of the atmosphere around a strange planet – perhaps prompted by the news that the robot on the comet woke up

and here is how the 2 segments look together

thanks to Kristin for a fifth year of wonderful artistic sharing around a colour palette

It's really interesting seeing how everyone interpets these; I really like that hot mix in the inner segment. That deep pink and orange are wonderful together.

I so enjoy watching as this star gets filled in. How fun it is to watch as you decide what goes where, too. Love it.
