Oh! the colours around at this time of year! We may have grey days but the berries are really making a show at the moment, the shops are full of bright Christmas displays and the lights are shining everywhere, so it's no wonder we are in a 'Colourful' frame of mind at Try It On Tuesday for our latest challenge!
The Design Team have as ever produced some lovely colourful examples, why not take a look here?
I have a journal page (which is also for my 101 Way to Keep Warm at Art Journal Journey)which was inspired by watching Strictly Come Dancing.
The Tango is one of the dances I love to watch! One of my favourite films 'Moulin Rouge' also has a Tango featured! Definitely a hot, colourful dance!!
My image is likely to be in Argentina, where the Tango originated.
I painted the background by streaking PA Fresco paints, picking up the colours in the image and then added some stencilling, stamping and some painty circles using an old lid.
I stuck down the image and then added more paint to integrate it into the page!
Once again I have added some of my own my lettering.
These hot colours remind me of a warm Summer Evening but you may choose any combination of colours for your project - we love to see your entries!
The TIOT challenge runs until 4th December - looking forward to seeing what you make!
Thanks for looking, Chris
