Another Mixing It Up post

Lime Green and Purple is definitely not a color combination I would normally choose to work with - a little loud for my taste - but I'm still happy with the way this turned out!  This is Summer of Color week 3 combo combined with the Being Me week 4 assignment.  I used a patterned paper napkin, bits of lime green and purple tissue paper, acrylic paints, rub ons, and a variety of pieces from the happy mail that Deb sent me.

These colors are great, and so are the beautiful butterflies and flowers. Such a happy piece!

Miriam said...

I agree with Karen, it is a very happy piece especially as these are not your colours of choice. I really love it Cheri. Thanks for your visit to my blog, it has meant a long overdue visit here. You are making such gorgeous art, and I love the pictures for Scavenger Hunt but those Geese! amazing and so funny...

This turned out great - very bright and happy, but very cohesive as well.

Wow, I LOVE this color combo (but not one I ever would have thought of on my own). Wonderful quote.

Wasn't my first choice for colours to use either, but I love how vibrant this spread is. :)

WOW! This is so beautiful! I love what you did with this week's colors, even though they weren't your favorite!

All kudos to you for sticking with what didn't seem like a favourite combination. They make a wonderful contrast, and it is fascinating looking at all the bits you have added ...
