Update on January Project - Rethink the Pink

I have discovered a new design tool - the camera on my cell phone.  For some reason I can see the project differently when I am looking at a picture.  I can see the contrasts and flow of color.  With the choker completed I tried to arrange the leaves.  I didn't like the "flatness" of the way it looked on this picture.

So I played around with it some more and came up with this. I liked continuing with a different type of leaf and using the same colors.

That led to this.  I am working on some larger leaves for a focal point in the center.  I like the way it is going on right now.


  1. I like the way this is developing. I think you're totally on track with the different color/shades of leaves too. You were smart to look for a form that works for you rather than trying to fit yourself into a format that didn't feel comfortable. I look forward to seeing the rest of your BJP this year!

  2. Thanks. I am going to take a day or two break from it because I don't have the focal point figured out. I design very much in the moment and it has to feel right. So far I have some nice components but I am not feeling it. Oh, well, it will come if I don't force it.

    I am so looking forward to what the rest of you are doing. This is exciting!
