So I decided to challenge our Chunky Players this round. You know how we all seem to gravitate to our same favorite colors? Well, to take everyone a bit outside of their color comfort zones, I asked each player to give me three numbers between 1 and 50. I then matched each player's numbers against a master color list and gave them the three colors to work with. Some combinations were complimentary. Others, not so. Therein lies the challenge!
As the pages started to roll in, I was amazed at how creative everyone was with this challenge. They gladly trusted me to take them out of their comfort zone and the result was quite wonderful!
The colors I chose were tangerine, prussian blue and silver. I had recently taken an altered book technique workshop where I finally learned how to create a tunnel book. I employed the tunnel technique to created my chunky pages this month. It was a bit labor-intensive, but I had help from my Altered Ladies friend, Pat, who eagerly volunteered to die-cut my birds and branches so she could practice using the Big Shot! I think she had so much fun, she will be buying a Big Shot of her own very soon! I prepared all parts of my chunky pages and assembled them on my recent flight to San Francisco. I love passing the time on an airplane doing art projects! By the time we touched down, my pages were pretty much finished!
