365 Collages | Week 2 | All in Printable Colors

I made more collages. These are made out of some of the most printable colors you can imagine. They’re the CMYK colors that you use when you’re designing for print. Printable colors, that is. Defined by wiki:

The CMYK color model (process color, four color) is a subtractive color model, used in color printing, and is also used to describe the printing process itself. CMYK refers to the four inks used in some color printing: cyan, magenta, yellow, and key (black).

Let's be creative in 2018 together and do 365 somethings

I don’t know too much about CMYK, and rarely use it because where I used to print the magazine I edit, the did the CMYK:ing for me. But I love the color combination, don’t you? I mean that dark turquoise and one of my favorite dark pink (named magenta), that is nowhere near red. So yummy!

Your attitude is like a box of crayons that color your world. Constantly color your picture gray, and your picture will always be bleak. Try adding some bright colors to the picture by including humor, and your picture begins to lighten up.
Allen Klein

Week two of the year, and January is passing me by too quickly. But I did finish seven more collages for my project, so all is good in the world. I hope you got some time in for your creativity too?

The collages this week are kind of similar, but I like that. I don’t think they’re too similar. Not the same, just related and in a series of 7 happy colorful babies.

I try to apply colors like words that shape poems, like notes that shape music.

  1. No. 12 reminds me of a record album cover and that makes me smile this morning. I love music! So glad you made time to create and experiment with these fun colors. It’s neat studying your variations on a theme. Thanks for sharing with us!

  2. My favorite is #13, maybe because the yellow is so bright, and I like the the turquoise and orange accents. I like 10 & 11 too, but the color bar wants too much attention & distracts a bit. I like the papers you’ve painted and the black dots. Very Pop! Miro would approve, I think.

  3. Loving your collages Hanna! Thanks again for this fun project. I like the use of the black dots too – they make the other colours sing! Xx

  4. I like #2 and #4 the most, I guess it has to do with the text and the bright painted piece of paper working together so well. I love the CMYK-idea!
