Palette Play!


Gillian always makes me feel like a little kid heading to art class- the best part of the day after graham crackers, of course! Last week after I donned one of my Fathers old shirts to protect my dress, I sat down to read what she had for us now. So this post is about palette creating! This will  not be a tutorial- Gillians post is perfect- I just had so much fun with the idea, I wanted to share my work! Self-Portrait_with_Palette

As a non-tech gal, I found this quite draining- I wrestled with it and of course ended up on picmonkey collaging this bad boy. So here it is: pile-of-leaves

Ok, actually, that’s pretty close. Here is the real thing. Do you think I’m coordinating my clothes to match the dog and cat hair that finely covers it? Perhaps. palette

I was having trouble adding the colors to it, but really, when do I wear solid colors? So I used the seasonal swatches on Picmonkey and other than  wishing for a slightly more tealy green, I’m pleased. Altho a few animal print swatched wouldn’t have hurt my feelings.

Have you done your palette yet? Do you stick to a set color zone or let the muse take you? showgirls_vlv1
