From luscious lime to opulent olive: the color of spring time.
“I am going to try to pay attention to the spring. I am going to look around at all the flowers, and look up at the hectic trees. I am going to close my eyes and listen.” ~ Anne Lamott
Color is an integral part to all types of creativity, it influences our moods and emotions, it’s linked with memories. Colors have been assigned meanings and connections throughout history and around the world.
When we tune our eyes in to notice the colors around us, life becomes brighter and more vibrant.
Through 2017 I’ve been exploring these aspects of color in a year long visual adventure: one color each month.
Every month I’ve worked just in the month’s colors, this month I made a series of textile collages and each month I added some more to this mixed media art journal.
Over the last 12 days of the year I want to show you a glimpse of this project.
Yesterday we looked at Yellow, tomorrow we’ll step around to Twelvty-Three: Green

As part of my year full of color project, TWELVTY, I spent much February stitching together these gorgeous little textile wall art pieces from layers of hand-dyed recycled fabric, paper, buttons, beads and embroidered together with happy thoughts.
