True Colors -- FINALLY!

Hello Everyone!

Well, this post is long overdue -- and even longer overdue is the artwork of this post. I am in a round robin swap with a yahoo group, and we are working on a True Colors round robin (and have been for many months now!). If you've read the True Colors book by Kathryn Bold you are most likely familiar with what this round robin entails.

The palate chosen by Candace was comprised of the following colors: turquoise, orange, red, yellow, purple and lime. A retro rainbow! (Hey... if I had thought of the "Retro Rainbow" before I started working on this journal entry, I would have come up with an entirely different layout!)

Here is what I did come up with...

I had a lot of fun with this layout, especially with the word/letter placement, because I wanted it to complete the quotes that I utilized, but I also wanted to make it appear random and interesting at the same time.

I hope that Candace likes what I came up with... and hopefully she'll like it enough not to be too terribly upset with me about how long it took me to complete it!

Gott Beads?

No, it's not a typo... that's the name of the Artisan Studio that I'd like to share with you this evening! Gott Beads!

I love beads. I have a rather large stash of them, as I tend to horde them. I don't use them as often as I should in my altered artwork... mostly because I seem to be rather enchanted by just keeping jars full of beads on my shelves in my studio... and leaving them untouched!

Just a sampling of some of the treasures you'll find at Gott Beads!
