Wk two color Prompt & Mini Color Zine free to download!

Hi Folks!

I have a free mini zine for you to download and print out!

Hover your cursor here, right click and select "save as"

You can learn how to fold it here:

Also in the same vid, I've shown how I decorated my journal for the Color Journal project!

Okay on to Week #2's journaling prompt!

Orange and Brown!

These colors may seem weird and reminiscent of time spent at Burger King in the 80s, but they actually make for a really nice scheme! Brown is a neutral and neutrals can go with just about anything; but I would choose a warm brown (something with more yellow or red in it) to set off the warm tones in the orange. Orange is a great color - a tempered balance between passionate red and the cheerful yellow. I decided to accent my orange/brown scheme with a little purple (can't seem to let go of purple!) and it looks good!

Feel free to play with accent colors in your Brown/Orange scheme. An accent color is just that - a simple hint of another color just to spice things up a bit - not meant to overwhelm the dominant scheme.

For those of you who work in collage and mixed media, here is a free pattern for you to play with! (You can use it for work traded or sold but you cannot sell or distribute the file on it own unaltered, thanks!)

Love this combo and all the freebies! Thanks so much. I can't let go of purple either.

I did not see a place to e-mail you on your blog, but I wanted to get a message out. I cannot open anything art trader related at all. no workshops, forums, the magazine or any old e-mails of mine even. It seems like the problem is on your end because I opened this blog and other stuff of mine. Just wanted you guys to know. sorry I put it here.

Found you via youtube. I love colour projects, and I think I will try brown and orange on a page soonish. Purple is not my colour at all, but orange is beautiful and so is brown. Thanks for the inspiration girl!

Thanks Marcia!

Sal is working on the website, I think it has something to do with the host! It should be fixed soon, and we apologize for the delay and any inconvenience!

iHanna: You're welcome! I hope you'll post pictures at our flickr group! I'd love to see what you make!
