several weeks ago, alisa burke offered her "color your world" online class, and since my total knowledge of color will fit on the tip of a pin, i couldn't resist signing up. this class focused more on the simple aspects of color theory (there's nothing heavy here), and alisa gave us lots of ideas of how to look at color in our every day lives.....and then apply it to our creative world.
our first exercise was to make our own color wheel based on something that inspires us.....
and since these little thumbuds are my main source of inspiration these days, this is what i came up with. after i was finished, though, i wondered exactly where all the color was......there seems to be a lot more black and white on this color wheel than anything else! and then i remembered that i already have two store-bought color wheels that are saturated with color, but they don't have nearly this much personality, whimsy, or cuteness factor.
so, this is the one that inspires me.
this is the one that makes me smile.
and this is the one that truly colors my world!!
