Gloria Loughman - Colour is Magic

The Saturday class was Colour is Magic and as the title kind of implies, it's working with colour. We spent the first hour reviewing colour theory which actually was very good since I haven't done that since high school art classes back in the "dark ages" :-). We also studied the pictures that we brought in to determine what colour scheme they represented. Mine was analogous. Then based on our colour scheme we were to take one of two patterns that Gloria had and create our small wall hanging.

Below is the result of my efforts. It's not quite the full analogous colour scheme of the picture I selected since as I mentioned I was kind of short on the pinky purple coloured fabrics.

I had problems with the small tree to the left with the fusible web product and it got kind of munched. Tomorrow after work I have some time so I'm going to try an experiment with Misty Fuse and freezer paper to see if that will give me better control over the process. I will let you know how that turns out.
Here are a few samples of some of the other gals work and as you can see how different colour schemes can give the same design a completely different look.

I always find it interesting to see colour studies.. these were no exception.

This looks like it was a really interesting class. And all of the studies are so different.
