A FLOWER PATCHWORK



I'm going along quite happily with the "Summer of Colour" challenges when suddenly Week 5 comes along with these colours.



Frankly, bleeeeeehhh!

I had a look at some of the other wonderful entries.
They could do it.

I've been playing on and off since Monday morning, making blue collages





and to cut a long story short,
I added a few flowers
and made this with the help of photo-editing.






I know it's not just the three colours and I know they're not in the right proportions.

I know some of the flowers are not all red or blue, but actually they refused, they didn't want to be the same.

And that's it, otherwise I'll still be trying to make something from these three colours and it will be Week 5 2015.

I'm also linking to "Art Journal Journey" where the theme is "Flower Power".  

Please like it a little bit.

Nice piece, and I know how you felt with those colours, a lot of us didn't like them. But you have done a good job here! Enjoy the sunshine, it's hot and humid here this afternoon after the rain! Valerie

Cindy McMath said...

I think it's really cool and pretty! I'm sorry it wasn't as fun as it could have been, but if I hadn't read the story I would not have guessed. I liked this week's colours but it looks like I was in the minority!

kat said...

Sheila your lovely flowers are there and I love those sweet red flowers in all that blue! I admit these colours were hard and just too primary....that's why I loved the simple way with this one and I don't think I overly kept to the exact colours anyway. You did great with this in the end!

Victoria said...

Fodie Ann said...

Ah-ha! So that's how you finally used the difficult colours! I was agog to see your creation, and I do like it! It is good the way that you have kept almost to the three colours. The one eyed octopus is surveying the flowers, and the blus millipede in the bottom left square. The red frame sets everything off beautifully!
Have a good weekend, Sheila.

These colors really do look fab together
AND
you stepped up to the challenge beautifully Sheila!
Each step of the way I found all of the elements so pleasing and then your final result is really WOW!
I'd like to be a fly on the wall and see how you do it...
Oftentimes challenges can be good for getting us out of our comfort zone and stretching creative muscles...
You did great and for two challenges too!

I do like it a little. I even like it a lot! Firstly, you gotta know I love the rebel in you regarding this piece! :-) I love your original blue collages as well as love them after editing. I see lots of fun modern and vintage art and reality in this art piece. Good for you taking on the challenge.

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

I'm laughing and laughing at the way your mind works. I know the feeling about week 5, 2015. I've had colors like that, too.

Regardless, I adore your rebel flowers and fun art this week!

Great result. I am new here and I did manage to get something up with the colors.

Craftymoose Crafts said...

I know just what you mean about these colors...not the easiest to work with, and not my favorite either.

Your finished piece would make a great quilt!

Wonder what is in store for us next week?

denthe said...

Well, actually, I like it a lot :-)
It was not my favorite combination either, but you did a great job with these colours. I love how you did the collages, and adding the bright red flowers just gives it that little extra.
