Art At the Speed of Life Lesson 5

Continuing to work through Creating Art At the Speed of Life by Pam Carriker. . . In this lesson we were to choose two complementary colors.  Here's another art vocabulary word. Complementary - The colors opposite each other on the color wheel.  I chose red and aqua and the theme of LOVE.  I loved the color combo and the grouping of the collage elements at the bottom of the page. They look as if they have actually fallen downs and are caught behind a wire barrier.  I used diluted acrylic paint, slow dry blending gel, water color pencil, magazine and paper scraps, white gel pen, permanent ink pen, mod podge and stickers.
