This week's challenge over on
is to create something using the colours
I had a problem thinking 'pink' when the colour square in their
picture above was more of a dusty tone.
I decided to work with a 'pink' which looked more like the colour square
rather than a bright pink I had in my mind.
I've been making a doll each week for these challenges so thought
I'd make a dress with pink and yellow ribbon.
When it came to it though, I just didn't like the combination
so made a background with the colours instead
It's mountboard covered with book text then coloured with
a combination of paints and mica sprays.
There's a little silver in there too to represent the grey.
Instead of a dress, I made her a trouser suit - that
sounds so dated now, what shall I call it - an 'all in one' perhaps,
although it is actually a two piece!
Her shawl is some sheer grey ribbon
and her hair is grey coloured embroidery thread.
Her name is 'Gray' and here's a close up of her face.
Her pink clothes look darker than the colour square,
but her lips at least are pink!
If you want to see some more of this colour combination
there is a linky whatsit on
and I'll be adding mine to it shortly.
Thanks for looking :)
