It is time for some monochromatic collage! Yay, right? This is one of my favorite ways to work with colors, and collage.
Many years ago now, I did a series of monochromatic art journal pages. Who remembers those? Anyway, it was a super fun little project where I tried every orange paint color and every orange paper scrap I could locate, and wrote about the swatches, on one art journal spread for orange, and so on.
When I made these, I started thinking about that, and in my next art journal, I will start with something similar I think. Just playing with one color, because “one color” isn’t just one, it’s thousands of hues that we group together under one name. We think of them as similar, but they can be very different from each other. I love them all dearly.
So it’s a bit of a rainbow today, a bit of swatching, a bit of play with colors – one of my favorite ways to do art. Just playing and seeing what comes out.
Please let me know below which of these you like best, and why…
