Creative Color Challenge: Violet Purple


I can't even believe that the date of this post is September 2!! Wow! Really where did the summer go? Am I the only one that feels this way? We our doing the countdown to the first day of school which is on Wednesday. I am going to miss my little guy being with me all day but I am so excited for him. He is going to do great!

This is my submission for the final week of Louise Gale's Creative Color Challenge. The color is violet purple. I gessoed my paper and then used colored pencils and did some paper cutting. I only participated in week 1,2 and 5. It was really fun and of course CHALLENGING. Check out all the other submissions in the flickr pool.
