The colors for Week 1 of Summer of Color are Aqua and Yellow with a smudge, splash or pop of pink.
This turned out to be an explosion of yellow, (which really doesn't show in the photos - it's so much more vibrant in reality) and which was totally unplanned. I started with the aqua blue and thought it would be the prominent color. The yellow took over. I wish you could see it in person! Bright yellow everywhere! It exploded into a rather busy, happy mess as I tried to balance everything out. Parts of it I love and parts of it I'm not so fond of, but overall I like how it turned out.
One thing I love is that it made me use yellow. A lot of yellow. Which is something I don't normally do. What looks red was done with a deep pink and the purple just kind of snuck in there.
