Further card play

I have a one track mind right now - landscapes, small, simple - and this time with a vague hint of Christmas.

The card images from Friday have changed somewhat as they always do, with colour and balance different but only slightly so far. I've had fun arranging the latest batch of little landscapes into a grid before sticking them down onto their cards ...


But now, I think I want to change the colour more dramatically so there's another grid with landscapes haphazardly placed upside down to help me look at them differently. Inverting and enhancing the colour has taken me still further ...


... and now, I've turned them on their sides and played further with the colour ...


I've had trouble getting the colours to look icy and cool enough but this exercise seems a real help. I quite like the way the most distant colour is strong and dark. Now I want to try them out on a white ground which may prove different. If they're worth posting then I will post - if not, I'll (thankfully) stay silent!

    1. Thank you, Connie. They've been great fun to do. Now to explore blue, not a colour I use much for some reason, so it will be good for me!

    1. I'm well and truly set on this landscape thing right now - and I suspect the possibilities are endless. I know there will be more - this time in stitch?

  3. I pleased that you had a busy time with your family, way more important than blogging!
