Flowers in Blue


Size: 17″ x 18½”


This collage was my response to a Fast Friday Fabric Challenge to use analogous colors, that is, shades next to each other on a color wheel, with an added piece to create a sense of tension or energy. This had me thinking at first that warm/hot colors were called for, but my design didn’t match my stash nor my method of working, so mid-week I switched to pulling out other fabrics and they told me how to put them together. Thus, I came up with the purple/blue/green shades, and using a strong blue for the background added in a cool energy. I added lines of beads in the two lighter purple sections and in the larger two blue floral parts, with a scattering of individual beads in the green part to make a further pattern contrast.
