This year I joined a Creative Color Challenge being offered by Louis Gale. It’s my first time although she has offered it in the past. I love the idea of once a month creating something using one color palette (plus black and/or white if desired). It’s simple, yet powerful. January’s color is orange. Any shade of orange is fine and this one specifically highlighted Tangerine Tango, a Pantone color and the color of the year. This color is the reddish orange you see in some areas of my image and not a color I can WEAR but it looks great in artwork. Its alive and fun and makes me feel energized and ready to tackle something new. Its simply delicious.
Even though I do design work, I am new to the world of digital design in terms of art journaling. I also started an online course in digital art journaling this month through Jessica Sprague. This image was done in Photoshop with a combination of scrapbook papers, scrapbook elements, Photoshop brushes, and text. It was a lot of fun to create. I’m looking forward to seeing what all the others do with orange, the happiest color, according to Frank Sinatra (and me).
