Hello everyone out there! Here is my A in the "DREAM" banner challenge that is hosted over at Simple Journeys by sweet Lisa. I have been gone all day and just got back. I can't believe I had my letter finished ahead of time and I still didn't get to post first today! I really love the way this pennant came out. I love to use floral images in my art, and I am a nut about roses. The woman at the rose bush is one of my favorite images too. The other thing that I really like is the style of the A . The D, R, E, A, and M are all the same font (I can't remember the name of it right now), but the A is the most graceful and beautiful of all of the capitals to me. That is part of art to me. I enjoy taking the time to make sure that my pieces all look like they fit together. When I want more harmony in a piece, I use colors from the same color family (like all reds, light to dark) or colors that are next to each other on the color wheel (like red, red-violet, and blue), and to make a piece more exciting you can use complimentary colors (like green/red, blue/orange, and yellow/purple). When I was first learning about color and color theories, I was totally blown away by it. There is nothing else that is so easy to add to a piece as color, and it has a huge impact on the way your art looks and feels. I love to get out my paints and some copy paper and just play, mixing first one color combination and then another. OK, this teacher is finished for today!! Ha ha! I just can't help myself sometimes! Anyway, I hope you like my letter A. Just one more to go! What's next Lisa?
