Fresh Art Blues Trio Mixed Media Contemporary and Vintage

Hope  you like these color combinations.  After reading the name, Gingersnap Creations a few times around blogland and seeing  this post  on Cindy Adkins' Whimsical Musings blog, I decided to go and see what the excitement was about.  I mean, the name of the blog, Gingersnap Creations conjured up one of my favorite cookies and a spice so the temptation to visit was strong.

I made these two pieces in response to the challenge to use Turquoise, Blue, and Purple and papercrafting in a piece.  The blog has all the details, FAQs, etc.  Go check it out and if you want a theme to make some art sometime, you'll find it at the blog.

Both pieces are 4x4 on coldpress paper.  The first one with the children is acrylic paint, inks, rubber stamped, using scraps of cards, envelope, calendars, magazines, ribbon, and catalogs, plus ephemera.   The second one with the girl and the pink umbrella, I used acrylic paint, and pieces of an envelope, magazines and catalogs.   What do you think, it's my first try at 4x4 size.

Thanks for the feedback and kind comments! These colors are a great combo and will try to join the Gingersnap Creations theme again.

I did try to make these less personal, but realized after I'd posted that the girl with the pink umbrella was saying something I was thinking.

Thanks, Dee- GC chose the color theme and at first I didn't like the combo, but I do after seeing the variety of results. A story, yes!
